    That’s the thing about everything they try to make electric. They have to make it look hideous and cheap. If they made one look like a traditional good looking truck than they would sell. Instead they have to be force fed to people by the government because they are to ugly to be seen with.

    Tesla has been in the hauling biz for the last 2 years. Not sure why this is news.

    Can’t get good eMPG with a brick rolling down the road....

    Tesla really has me in their clutch with the interior though, I love me some screens.

    Dont forget about autopilot ..... SUCH a stress reliever when driving.

    Note that this truck has standard mirrors and looks like a standard seating position. Also the picture from Twitter has the truck looking ragged already.

    Looked at the first picture a d saw it was center seating. Look at the weather stripping over the window and door in the Twitter pic though. Just bad build quality.

    You have to take that truck with a grain of salt, it’s still a concept, not a full blow production model
     
    Doealex and Wasted Thyme Thank this.

    Not every electric is odd looking... I have one of these for tooling across town in the carpool lane. And... It has Tesla guts.
