The long-awaited reveal of Tesla’s pickup truck will most likely take place November, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in response to a Twitter follower’s question.

Tesla’s first crack at one of America’s most popular body styles, which will begin production after the Model Y, has been the topic of much speculation from Tesla and electric vehicle fans collectively. Information regarding the truck is vague, but Elon Musk has released a number of details, most notably a possible 300,000-lb towing capacity.

The truck is also rumored to have a starting price of $49,000, pack 400 to 500 miles of battery electric range, and have a driver’s seat that will fit Andre the Giant, according to Elon Musk.

While Tesla has released a teaser image of the truck, there is no official rendering for what the truck will look like. Elon Musk has described it has “cyberpunk” and said that it will be “pretty sci-fi…It’s kind of like a blade-runner truck”.

Tesla will be joining Amazon CEO-backed Rivian and Ford to compete in one of the auto industry’s top-selling markets in the United States. In 2018, the top 3 selling vehicles included Ford’s F-Series, the Chevrolet Silverado, and the Dodge Ram.
