Interests of the yet-to-be-introduced Tesla pickup truck peaked when images of a concept design from Turkish designer, Emre Husmen, surfaced.

The beautiful concept pickup perfectly interpreted what Tesla CEO Elon Musk described as a “cyberpunk” truck which would feel right in place in the sci-fi movie “Blade Runner.” Because of this, people became interested in how the real truck would turn out.

There’s still so little information of what the Tesla pickup can offer but the futuristic design is already a good start and sets it apart against conventional brands. Musk described the upcoming electric pickup to have a design that’s both “awesome” and “amazing.” He hinted of the Tesla pickup even before the announcement and reveal of the hybrid crossover vehicle, the Model Y.

“Personally, I’m most excited by the Tesla Truck,” Musk said on his Twitter page. “Maybe it will be too futuristic for most people, but I love it.”

According to Inverse, the truck was first mentioned roughly three years ago during an announcement of the electric car company’s second master plan. It was a groundbreaking announcement because the company was known then for selling premium and expensive electric cars such as the first generation Roadster and the Model X.

Announcing the pickup signaled that Tesla would be offering their electric vehicle technology to more consumers. Three vehicles are seen to achieve this: Model 3, the Model Y and the Tesla Truck.

As the first two cars have officially been unveiled, all eyes are now on the Tesla pickup’s reveal which could happen during summer this year.

Last 2018, Musk said that the pickup truck is actually a bigger priority than the electric semi or even the Roadster supercar. As the semi is set to be revealed this year while the Roadster won’t be officially launched until 2020, there’s a big chance that the pickup would finally make an appearance somewhere in between.

As for the price, analysts are seeing the tag to be similar to the Model X which was Tesla’s previous “passion project” so to speak in terms of design. Since we’re expecting something of similar appeal from the Tesla Truck, it might be safe to assume that it’ll be priced somewhere between $74,500 or more depending on the variant.
