The Tesla Pickup Truck is among the company’s most exciting upcoming vehicles. While the Model Y is set to bring a sports utility vehicle to a wider audience, and the second-generation Roadster is set to redefine the supercar, CEO Elon Musk claims the Pickup Truck will offer a “cyberpunk” design that will be “awesome” and “amazing.”

Musk first mentioned the idea back in the July 2016 master plan. Together with the Model 3 entry-level sedan and the Model Y, the three vehicles would together be enough to bring Tesla, and by extension all electric vehicles, to a mass market. The electric pickup truck market is notably thin, bar the Workhorse W-15 with just 80 miles of range, and the Rivian R1T with an undetermined release date. This lack of competition gives Tesla an opportunity to become an instant leader once the truck hits roads in earnest.

Here’s what we know:

When will Tesla Pickup Truck be revealed?

The Tesla Pickup Truck is set to launch sometime after the Tesla Model Y. That car is due to be revealed in March 2019, with plans to enter full production the following year. Musk has already approved production of the Model Y prototype, which means a Pickup Truck reveal could come as soon as next year.

A launch could arrive sooner than expected. On November 19, Musk revealed that the Pickup Truck is a bigger priority than the Semi and the Roadster. With the former due for release in 2019 and the latter for 2020, it may not be long before the next-generation vehicle gets a full launch. The list, which Musk says was “in order of resource priority but not necessarily production ramp,” also named the solar roof tiles and Model Y as higher priority, suggesting that a post-March launch is still on the cards.

How much will Tesla Pickup Truck cost?

Tesla has yet to provide any clues about pricing, but Musk seems to be teasing the vehicle as a passion project to excite people. The last time Tesla let loose in such a way was with the Model X, which features exotic design choices like its falcon wing doors. This made the sports utility vehicle a pain to manufacture, but set it apart as a fun yet functional vehicle. With the Model X starting at $79,500, a price around this range could make sense.

What is the battery range for Tesla Pickup Truck?

If there’s one place where Tesla excels, it’s battery range. The Model 3 is positioned at the entry level, but even the $35,000 version will offer a range of 220 miles, with the long range version achieving 310 miles. With the second-generation Roadster set to stun with 620 miles of range, and the Model S already offering 393 miles of range on the high-end versions, the Pickup Truck could potentially offer a range somewhere around the mid 300s on the low end.

What Will Be the Tesla Pickup Truck Seating Capacity?

It’s unclear at this stage, but the pickup truck configuration allows for a number of seat layouts. The Toyota Hilux, something of a legend in this field, comes in two seat, four seat and five seat setups. Tesla has also been known to push the boundaries for number of seats you can expect, as the Model S sedan comes with an optional two extra child seats to create a seven seat configuration, unusual in a car of this size. With that in mind, don’t be surprised if the Pickup Truck comes with an impressive number of seats.

How will the Tesla Pickup Truck be manufactured?

The Pickup Truck is shaping up to be unlike the Model 3 and Model Y. Tesla’s most recent car, and its next upcoming car, were both built with big quantities in mind. They were designed for easy production, able to meet the projected one million car per year global demand for the Model 3. However, Musk has referred on several occasions to the “over-engineered” design of the Model X, so while the Pickup Truck is likely to ship in smaller quantities than the Model 3 with reduced regard for mass production, it may not prove the huge challenge the Model X presented.

What has Elon Musk said about Tesla Pickup Truck?

Musk said in a November interview that “I can’t talk about the details, but it’s gonna be like a really futuristic-like cyberpunk, ‘Blade Runner’ pickup truck. It’s gonna be awesome, it’s gonna be amazing. This will be heart-stopping. It stops my heart. It’s like, oh, it’s great.” He later stated that “I actually don’t know if a lot of people will buy this pickup truck or not, but I don’t care,” before stating that “I do care, eventually” as “we wanna get gasoline, diesel pickup trucks off the road.” Musk said that “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.”

Musk took to Twitter back in June to find out what people want from a Pickup Truck. Plans include dual-motor all-wheel drive, “crazy” levels of torque, suspension with dynamic load adjustment, and more. Musk also hinted that the car could use the same “Hardware 2” sensor suite that would one day enable full autonomous driving, claiming that it would parallel park and offer 360-degree cameras and sonar.

With Musk thinking hard about how such a car should feel, expect more details soon.
