But what would a Tesla pickup look like? The electric automaker has made a name for itself by blending luxury with performance and cutting-edge technology, all things we'd expect in a truck offering, as well. These renderings from artist Andrei Avarvarii give us a glimpse of how Tesla pickup could look in the flesh.
Its front fascia blends a number of familiar Tesla features, and uses a similar grille design to that of the pre-facelift model S, though freshened up a bit with a livelier shape. The headlights are instantly recognizable and the hood is a macho take on the swoopier lids of the current Teslas. A rising beltline and big Turbine wheels give it a distinctively sporty look. The stamped tailgate and flared fenders give this otherwise mold-breaking truck a whiff of pickup traditionalism.
Of course, we'd expect a truck from Tesla to offer different battery capacities. It would also make sense for it to serve as a mobile power device, and we'd love to see electrical outlets in the bed and up in the frunk, where one would naturally store their (Tesla branded?) power tools.
