A lack of detail can be an excuse to publicly think about something, which iswhy Jalopnik wrote up a post about how Tesla's new microbus might stomp all over VW's endless stream of VW Combi-style electric minibus concepts (and lack of actual product). The thought that this upcoming microbus will be based on the Model X platform got official credence thanks to a Tweet by Tesla CEO Musk, confirming the suggestion.
Musk's second master plan also talks about an electric pick-up, something that has been hinted at for years (for example, that it might be built in Texas). There's more to this news, too. Again on Twitter, Musk talked about a variant, something more like a Ford Transit Connect utility van, that could be built on the pickup's forthcoming platform. A vehicle like this would me a lot of sense in Europe, where work vans are more commonly used than pickup trucks for jobs.
Some good guessing by @Jalopnik. The Tesla Minibus will be built on a Model X chassis. People density potential is surprisingly high.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 29, 2016
@JamesRossi100 probably makes sense to build off the pickup truck chassis— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 31, 2016
