Electric pickup trucks are a super hot segment these days with the Tesla Truck, Rivian R1T, Atlis XT pickup Ford F-150 and now even a Fisker pickup leading the charge. Let's check out some news highlights this past week in the world of electric trucks.
It was a rather busy week in the world of electric trucks. InsideEVs posted on that new, all-white Rivian R1T, as well as on the first attempts we've seen on bringing the Tesla truck interior to life. Additionally, a reveal date has been announced for the Tesla truck.
And who can forget a few weeks when we revealed everything we know about the Tesla truck and the Rivian R1T.
Let's check out some of this week's news highlights related to electric trucks.
We say imagined because nobody has seen the interior of this truck, nor the exterior, so this sketch is just an educated guess, but we do mostly approve of the design, which the renderer describes as a mash-up of a Tesla Model 3 and a Ford F-150 pickup truck.
Elon Musk says the unveiling will most likely occur this November.
As for production plans and availability? Those are both complete unknowns at this point in time. Tesla still has to get the Model Y into production, plus it's working on both the Tesla Roadster and Tesla Semi. The Tesla truck could be fast-tracked, but there are no details available right now.
We can say they are welcome changes, even if very subtle. The electric pickup trucks look more round. Aerodynamic improvements could have caused this. Or perhaps it is just the picture’s angles; we can’t tell for sure. Other differences are more comfortable to identify.
One of the most important ones relates to the charging port. E For Electric says it has changed from the left to the right. The good news is that it hasn’t, despite what the picture shows. What we will actually get are two charging ports, one on each side of the R1T, as the image below – also from Argentina Autoblog – clearly presents. Check the contour of the charging port on the front bumper.

Over time, mostly via Tesla CEO Elon Musk, we've bit by bit learned more and more details on the Tesla truck, so we think it's now time to highlight everything we know in regards to Tesla's pickup.
