Tesla enthusiasts are constantly on the lookout for new information regarding the mysterious Tesla pickup, even if people are yet to see any solid evidence of how the vehicle could actually turn out. With all the media coverage that Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s new vehicle is getting, everyone knows for sure that it’s going to be the benchmark of future electric pickups. 

But what exactly do we know about the upcoming utility vehicle? Here are some of the points Tesla fans can watch out for. 

For the release, Musk once tweeted that the Tesla pickup will be revealed in two to three months. If the timing is correct then there is a big possibility that we will finally be seeing the controversial pickup sometime next month. This is an exciting prospect since Tesla’s chief engineer described the upcoming vehicle to be “cyberpunk” or highly futuristic when it comes to appearance. 

In a new video released by Tesla analyst Alex Sibila, it was also pointed out that along with the design, fans will finally be able to know what the vehicle’s official name is going to be. 

At the moment, people only refer to it as the Tesla pickup but there’s a big possibility that the new EV will be called the Tesla Model B. Musk has been tweeting some intriguing posts that all allude to bees so many are already assuming that this is in reference to the upcoming pickup. 

Next, the Tesla pickup is also expected to have three kinds of trims in terms of design. According to the video, the pickup will have a base model, a middle tier and a performance model. The base model is expected to have a price tag of around $49,000 to $50,000. 

The Tesla pickup will also be a vehicle of power as Musk already claimed that it will have a total towing capacity of 300,000 pounds -- a feat that was instantly crushed by the electric Ford F-150 which was videoed pulling more than 1 million pounds of weight. Despite this, Tesla’s capability remains impressive when compared to other EV pickups such as the Rivian pickup which can tow 11,000 pounds. 

Lastly, the Tesla pickup is expected to run for 500 miles on a full charge, something that could appeal to very traditional pickup owners like farm owners who travel far and would need a reliable vehicle to go the extra mile.
