Elon Musk once said that he believes the upcoming Tesla pickup truck won’t appeal to everyone and that there might come a time when the company would have to decide to make a more conventional variant of the vehicle.

Without considering how the Tesla pickup would look like, it is hard to imagine how people could pass up on groundbreaking features such as the 300,000-pound towing capacity and the battery range that could run for 500 miles on a full charge. And with a price range of around $49,000 to $50,000 for a luxury vehicle, one would think that the Tesla pickup is too good a deal to pass up.

But there are other points to consider, however. The Tesla CEO described the EV pickup as “cyberpunk” and will not look out of place in a “Blade Runner” movie. Since the EV company has been very mysterious about how the pickup would look like, what we got instead are concept designs that depict some really out-of-this-world ideas. The pickup truck looks very modern and high-tech, something that can actually be expected from a company like Tesla.

Herein lies the problem. According to a report from Forbes, if Tesla wants to get a piece of the large pickup market then they should appeal to consumers who are simply looking for a vehicle that could address their utility needs. Meaning if they want consumers to look their way then they should offer a vehicle that’s familiar to the one they most probably have but with electric drivetrains.

But knowing Musk, he will do nothing of this sort. In fact, in an interview, the EV maverick shared that he has always wanted to build an E-pickup but the design would definitely be sci-fi inspired.

"It's not going to be for everyone," Musk said. The pickup would look so different that Musk compared the design to have the same effect as the first cars which are competing against the trusted horse-drawn carriages.

We’re still curious as to how the Tesla pickup truck would turn out but Musk did promise that it would have the same dependability of the popular Ford F-150 series and could even go as fast (or faster) than the Porsche 911. This is a bold statement indeed, and an effective one that makes us wonder how the real vehicle would turn out.
