4WDrive - - Feature -

Elon Musk, yeah, that geeky guy with a weird ac­cent that is slowly tak­ing over the world, is likely that last per­son you’d think would be push­ing a new truck on the 4WD au­di­ence. How­ever, in a re­cent master plan pre­sen­ta­tion for Tesla’s fu­ture, he of­fi­cially in­cludes an elec­tric-pow­ered pickup truck in his grandiose plans.

Mr. Musk doesn’t just want to sell trucks; he’s look­ing to com­pletely rev­o­lu­tion­ize the auto in­dus­try… and the en­ergy in­dus­try… and the space in­dus­try. Not to get too caught up in planet Musk, lets keep to the au­to­mo­tive side of things. Musk en­vi­sions Tesla mo­tors cov­er­ing the en­tire au­to­mo­tive field, be it small com­pacts to com­mer­cial truck­ing. While a mass-pro­duced EV truck has never been suc­cess­ful and only a hand­ful of hy­brids have ever seen the light of day, some­thing tells us he might be the one to bring an elec­tric pickup to mar­ket suc­cess­fully. So far there is no tim­ing for when we might see such a ve­hi­cle.
