Tesla's Upcoming Blade Runner-Inspired Pick-up Truck Could Look like This
In true Elon Musk fashion, Tesla CEO sent the internet ablaze with a tweet teasing the electric car company's next vehicle, Tesla’s electric pickup truck. Though the image gives very few details of the overarching design of the vehicle, Musk has promised that it will not look like a conventional truck. And, we wouldn't expect anything less from the electric car company.

Nevertheless, designers across the internet have used their skill set to interpret Musk's teaser tweet and render what they think the next vehicle will look like.
A big fan of the Tesla, Turkish designer Emre Husmen has dreamed up a concept for the electric-pickup truck that has gone viral, and that has definitely caught our attention. Let's take a closer look.
The Imaginative Electric Pick Truck
Dubbed the Tesla Model P, Husmen gives us multiple different concepts in various colors that have us salivating for the vehicle. Utilizing a hammerhead design, the vehicle is a huge futuristic update to any pick-up truck you may come across on the road.
The Husmen Tesla electric pick-up truck keeps a lot of the same design language found in the Model X. It boasts a signature solid front with fenders flowing into a perfectly streamlined windshield and roof.
The eye-catching and sleek head and tail lights are a nice touch, blending into the angular curves of the pick-up truck. Clean and elegant, we wouldn't be surprised if something similar ended up at Tesla.
Nevertheless, the final design of the vehicle is currently up in the air with rumors swirling that the electric pick-up truck will make its debut later this year.
The Potential Specs
Not much is currently known about the Tesla pick-up truck, but Musk has loosely discussed on Twitter some of the expected features and specs currently on their way. As a 6-seater, the truck is expected to be massive or "big enough that Andre the Giant" will be able to fit in the driver's seat.
Even more so, the Tesla pick up truck is expected to have 400 to 500 miles of range and a mind-blowing 300,000 lbs of towing capacity. Not to mention, a dual motor all-wheel-drive powertrain with dynamic suspension will be standard on the truck. Oh, and the truck will be able to float.
