Tesla Could Reveal Pickup Truck Prototype Next Year

“تسلا” تستعد لإطلاق أول “بيك آب” كهربائية

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk really wants to launch a pickup truck. In fact, he is so keen to enter the pickup market that’s he’s considering fast-tracking the launch of the Tesla pickup.

Responding to a question on Twitter about when the pickup will be available to order, Musk said that Tesla could unveil a pickup prototype next year.

In recent years, Tesla has enjoyed unveiling prototypes of its new models a couple of years before they hit the market. In 2016 and 2017, it did exactly this with the entry-level Model 3, the Tesla Semi, and the all-new Tesla Roadster. Following a similar timeline to these three, the production-spec Tesla Pickup could be expected to launch in 2020 before full-scale production commences in 2021.

Musk has been very open about his excitement for the Tesla Pickup in recent months. In early November, Musk told Recode that he is so excited about the vehicle that he’s not even bothered if it fails to sell well.

“I’m personally super-excited by this pickup truck. It’s something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. And I’ve been iterating sort of designs with Franz… It’s like I really wanted something that’s like super-futuristic cyberpunk.

“If there’s only a small number of people that like that truck, I guess we’ll make a more conventional truck in the future. But it’s the thing that I am personally most fired up about. It’s gonna have a lot of titanium,” he said.

Musk added that the pickup will be “heart-stopping,” is “gonna be amazing,” and “gonna be awesome.”

Unlike the Tesla Model S, Model X, and Model 3, the Tesla Pickup won’t be launched without any direct competitors on the market. Instead, the Rivian R1T should land in showrooms before the Tesla. However, Tesla has more experience with the mass production of vehicles and also has a huge customer base that will help it make up for lost time in the all-electric pickup market.

أعرب الملياردير الأمريكي ومؤسس شركة تسلا، إيلون موسك، عن نية الشركة إطلاق سيارة بيك آب كهربائية صغيرة العام المقبل.

وتشير مصادر مقربة من الشركة إلى أنها تعمل حاليا على تطوير منصات خاصة لهذه السيارات التي ستأتي، على الأرجح، بقمرة تتسع لأربعة أشخاص.

ومن المفترض أن يزود البيك آب الجديد بمحركين كهربائيين بعزم 600 حصان، من نفس طراز محركات سيارات “Tesla Model 3″، بالإضافة إلى بطارية كبيرة تكفي لقطع مسافة 450 كلم بالشحنة الواحدة.

كما ستأتي هذه المركبة بأنظمة تعليق خاصة تمكنها من اجتياز الطرق الوعرة ونقل الحمولات، وعلب سرعة أوتوماتيكية بعشر مراحل، ونظامي دفع خلفي ورباعي.
