Tesla may have become a household name thanks to the tremendous success of the Model S, but the company’s ambition for automotive domination certainly don’t end there. In fact, the company’s product roadmap doesn’t even end with the upcoming Model 3. If all goes according to plan, and assuming that Tesla can manufacture enough Model 3 vehicles to meet staggering demand in a timely manner, the company hasn’t been shy about revealing what other types of vehicles it may manufacture in the future.
That said, Fred Lambert over at Electrek did a great job compiling a list of every single Tesla vehicle that we might see by 2020. From the list, one of the more intriguing vehicles is a Tesla pickup truck. While the idea of Tesla, a company known for its sleek design, rolling out an electric pickup truck may sound a bit absurd at first glance, it’s important to remember that pickup trucks are without question the most popular vehicles in the U.S. year in and year out.
Notably, word of Tesla’s interest in a pickup truck came straight from CEO Elon Musk’s mouth. During an interview earlier this year, Musk said that releasing a pickup truck would be a logical next-step for the company.
“I think it is quite likely we will do a truck in the future,” Musk said. “I think it’s sort of a logical thing for us to do in the future.”
Another car Tesla has in the works is the Model Y. Set to be built upon the Model 3 platform, Tesla’s rumored Model Y will likely be a crossover version of the Model 3, similar to how the Model X was an offshoot of the Model S.
Again, word of the Model Y’s existence came from Musk himself late last year.
Additionally, note the following slide from a presentation given by Tesla CTO JB Straubel many months ago.
Those two vehicles aside, Lambert does a solid job of breaking down other Tesla vehicles that we might see on the road at some point in the future, including a Minibus and a Tesla Semi. Check it out via the source link below.
