Looking through the photos of Tesla concepts for puckup trucks I have to say that it looks very disapppointing.
One of the photos is showing a copycat of F-150 with Tesla headlights that absolutely do not belong in there.
I have always owned F-350, and as most fo truck owners woudl not consider buying a truck that looks like a mutated car. Sort of like El Camino which was a major laughing stock of car industry. Now there is Ridgeline by Honda is out there, and it is as hideous and useless as it gets. A truck has TO be a truck- that's what will sell it. If Tesla is targeting those uncertain people that do not know what they want and make a little 'one size fita all', then Tesla will never win a tue pickup truck buyers that arae now willing to pay 80K for a new puckup, and will consider electric version. It has to be able to pull at least a trailer with a couple of dirt bikes on it, better a toy hauler. Definitley has to be able to go at least 400-500 miles.
Judging from what I see I wouLD not buy Tesla truck until lthey learn how make it.
By the way back seat/space is mainly not for passenger but for let's say motocross gear bags and other things that have to be locked up while we are riding and the truck is parked in the staging area.
Regular cab will not sell, everyone who owns a truck wants a crew cab no matter how many vehicles are in a household.
When Tesla figures out what truck peoplel want and make something similar to F-150 or F-350, then we may consider buying Tesla pickup truck.
