Elon Musk has long entertained the idea of making a Tesla pickup truck. The designer Emre Husmen has shared his vision of what the EV pickup truck could look like with his very own concept.
Initially, I wanted to design this pickup truck inspired by the roadster concept’s design language… on this project, I thought about applying one-piece body design (without a separate back bed), because of the battery packs.
So it’s much more rigid with independent suspensions, this allows it to have a much better handling and performance. So I imagined this could be the quickest and fastest truck ever when it comes out.
Since it’s the fastest truck available yet, I wanted to design very sporty and dynamic exterior, behind rear windows I placed “shark fins” to make it more aerodynamic and efficient.
On the lower front, rear and side protectors there are hidden folding steps to assist users enter/exit the cabin easily, so these were my basic ideas when visualizing it.
Elon Musk once tweeted that a Tesla pickup would have “crazy torque” and endorsed this artist’s wild rendering of a striking, hammerhead-style design.
