Tesla’s Elon Musk Tweets Out More Details on Mysterious Electric Truck
We’ll keep this short and sweet, as we’re not entirely sure why Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk keeps hyping this mysterious electric truck.
The tweet above hit Twitterdom on May 24, but it follows one other from Musk that focused on a future electric pickup, too.
Then there’s this statement from Musk, which was made when Tesla Motors was in Texas battling it out over dealership franchise laws:
“I have this idea for a really advanced electric truck that has the performance of a sports car but actually more towing power and more carrying capacity than a gasoline or diesel truck of comparable size. That could be really cool, and I think that would probably make sense to do that at a new plant.”
What shall we make of all this truck talk? Hmm… Should Tesla dabble into the pickup truck arena? Does an electric truck make sense? Would you line up to buy one?
So many questions, so few answer. Musk, once again, leaves us scratching our collective heads.
