Tesla will unveil its electric pickup 'cybertruck' in LA on 21 November: Musk

Tesla CEO says that the cybertruck looks like an armoured personnel carrier from the future.


Tesla Inc plans to unveil its electric pickup truck, "cybertruck," on 21 November in Los Angeles near the SpaceX rocket factory, Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk tweeted on Wednesday.

Musk had said in January that Tesla might be ready to unveil the truck by summer.

Carmakers including Ford Motor Co and General Motors Co are racing to design radical new takes on their most profitable pickup truck models, replacing petroleum-fuelled engines with batteries in a bid to outflank Tesla's plan to eclipse their brands.

"Cybertruck doesn't look like anything I've seen bouncing around the Internet. It's closer to an armoured personnel carrier from the future," Musk had said in a tweet last month.

 

Ford's F-150 pickup and GM's Chevrolet Silverado are the top-selling vehicles in the US market.

The reveal would happen a day before the Los Angeles Auto Show opens to the public, according to its website.
