Tesla is building a pickup truck. We’ve known that for a few years now. But when?
In an earnings call this afternoon, Elon Musk said that he’s hoping to unveil the truck this summer.
“It will be… unique,” he added.
Note, of course, that “unveil” doesn’t mean “ship.” That, presumably, won’t happen for a while. The company is still knee-deep in Model 3 production, and is finishing its Gigafactory in Shanghai and its long-awaited Semi truck — and is actively working on getting its SUV (tentatively called the “Model Y”) into the tooling stage. The company has a lot on its plate right now.
