We’d Love To See Tesla’s “Blade Runner” Pickup Look Like This

Tesla is gearing up to unveil its first ever all-electric pickup truck later this year and designer Emre Husmen has dreamt up what it could (should?) look like.

As the Californian car manufacturer has only released a single teaser image of its truck, very little is known about what the exterior of the vehicle will look like. Elon Musk has described it as a “really futuristic-like cyberpunk, ‘Blade Runner’ pickup truck”, so we’re hopeful it will be just as mind-blowing as this concept.

The front of Husmen’s Tesla pickup consists of thin LED headlights unlike any found on previous or current Tesla vehicles. Additionally, there is also a small faux grille and a skid plate at the base of the bumper.

As the vehicle will obviously be all-electric, Tesla should be able to expand the cabin and push it forward compared to a typical pickup. Husmen’s design reflects this and shows a windshield which stretches as far forward as the front axle of the truck.

In addition, the study incorporates a massive wheelbase and adopts a set of radical doors with aggressive indentations and diagonal body lines. The rear of the car incorporates a relatively small bed and LED taillights just as unique as the headlights.

While it remains to be seen if the Tesla Pikcup will look as radical as this, we’re not holding our breaths, particularly when you consider how restrained the design of the new Model Y is.

Looks aside, Musk has said that the new EV will include an advanced suspension which adjusts rear damping, rebound, and compression depending on what cargo the vehicle is carrying. Additionally, there will be 360-degree cameras and sonar, and the pickup will offer seating for six people and a range of between 400 and 500 miles (643 km – 804 km).

    too bad it’ll look like the Model 3 bloated up a little with the back chopped off.

  • Sovereignty

    Looking at the issues current Tesla Model 3 owners are seeing, I suspect the F150 will continue to be North America’s best selling vehicles for decades to come!

  • I GUESS THE ARTIST DOESN’T UNDERSTAND TESLA’S DESIGN AESTHETIC. THEY DON’T DO THINGS THAT WILL EASILY DATE THEIR CARS. CLASSIC DESIGN WITHOUT A LOT OF UNNECESSARY AFFECTATIONS.

    • D4VE THEFIRST

      Yup, just boring soap dish design.

  • Zandit75

    The wheels & tyres alone will cut the expected range by half. This looks like the artist took Toyota’s CH-R for inspiration.
    I actually don’t mind the design, certainly better than anything Tesla is currently producing.

  • Mr. EP9

    Oh come on, we all know it will either look like the Model X (which is ugly) or the Semi with the back chopped off and a pickup bed attached.

  • Bonnie Testo

    Raving about this monstrosity is sickening. Anti-aerodynamic body contours, copying the fat hood of conventional pickups, faux front grill, etc. What are you smoking? Oh yeah, today is April 20 (4/20).

    Tesla would never design something so stupid and ugly as this.

    • PoisonEagle

      Absolutely sickening? I think you have an over-sensitive gag reflex.

    • MultiKdizzle

      Really?

      Three of Tesla’s current models (X, Y, & 3) are hideous egg-shaped tall bois.
      Only the Model S has properly attractive proportions.

        Model 3 is a great looking sedan I’m looking to get soon. Going to replace my bad on gas Mazda. I drove a 3 with white interior and it is absolutely amazing. I could live in that thing

  • PoisonEagle

    Shhh it’s okay. There, there.

  • Maricaibo

    Designers still don’t know how to deal with the ‘grill’ on cars that don’t need them. Like looking at a face with no mouth- it’s weird.

    • David

      Sir indeed, your absolutely right, that is the only I not buying the model three.
