Tesla is expanding its lineup slowly. After they added SUVs in their portfolio, the producer of all-electric vehicles announced the arrival of a semi-truck in September. However, that won’t be all. No, the carmaker is also working on the Tesla Pickup Truck which will be finished within two years.
2019 Tesla Pickup Truck Specs and Engine Options:
According to our reliable sources, the 2019 Tesla Pickup Truck will offer three different powertrains. The starter will use a so-called 75D system, which is good for 328 horsepower and 387 lb-ft of torque. Since it will use a smaller 120 kWh battery, the truck will be able to cross around 240 miles. That won’t be the best available option but it will be the less expensive model.
In case you need something more capable, there will be a mid-ranged 90D Model U, which will produce 417 horsepower and 485 lb-ft of twist, as well as the most potent P90D with produce 532 horsepower and 713 lb-ft. These powertrains will use a bigger 160 kWh, which will enable a driving range of about 250 miles.
Aside it’s going to deliver better range, the most powerful 2019 Tesla Pickup Truck will reportedly be able to tow up to 10,000 pounds, which is not bad for the first electric pickup. Plus, it’s 0 to 60 sprint should be around 5.0 seconds, which is quite impressive.
The upcoming 2019 Tesla pickup will have an all-electric range of 250 miles.
Price and Release Date:
The biggest problem of the Tesla Pickup Truck will be the price. This is where the Model U won’t be able to match to the non-electric pickups because the base trim should be priced around $60,000. Also, the fully loaded versions might easily cost twice as much.
