Tesla Pickup Truck: Musk Says 12000 lbs is Puny

Has Elon Musk just suggested that a Tesla pickup truck will outhaul one of the mighty Ram trucks? That sure seems to be what he’s implying in a recent tweet.First, his words:

12,000 lbs!? How puny. Do you construct children’s toys?

Of course, we need some context here to explain what Musk is referring to, so here’s the tweet embedded in full:

It’s not a secret that Tesla is working on an electric pickup truck. In fact, it’s scheduled to be revealed sometime later this year. As for its towing/hauling abilities, both are still up in the air. However, we do know that the expectations are high…very high.

The truck will be a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive pickup with “crazy torque & a suspension that dynamically adjusts for load. Those will be standard,” noted Musk in a previous tweet. We suspect that whatever a Ram 1500 or Ford F-150 can do, Tesla will one-up those figures.

We’ll find out the actual info in detail later this year when Tesla reveals its much-anticipated electric truck.
