Many promises have been delivered regarding the performance of the upcoming, Tesla Truck, including it being a “better sports car than a standard Porsche 911”, and “better truck than a Ford F-150 in terms of truck-like functionality”.
The planned features of the truck include an option for 400 to 500 miles of range, Dual Motor All-wheel-drive powertrain with dynamic suspension and “300.000 lbs of towing capacity'”.
Back in July, when got our first sneak peek of the Tesla Pickup truck; an artist used his skills to stitch together the snippets of the truck that Elon Musk provided.
Here’s the first potential design as constructed by Justin Duel James, aka Duelji:
Musk later confirmed that the artist was way off, adding that the design is closer in appearance to an “armoured personnel carrier from the future”.
Following this description, artist, Stephen Mason, came out with this design:
Now, Tesla designer Sahm Jafari could give us some potential insight into the design of the pickup truck with his “Tesla Model Zero”.
Jafari interned at Tesla while completing his degree in the Art Center College of Design in California, and actually went and uncovered one of the designs meant for the company.
Since his design bears great resemblance to the mystery part that Musk shared, it’s likely that we could see similar design aspects in the Tesla Pickup Truck.
“A car that slots under Model 3 with the goal of making the electric lifestyle accessible to all. The Model Zero strengthens the brand image toward the entry-level market and opens up the doors to sustainable commuting to nearly anyone looking to get into a new vehicle.”

The suspense will come to an end at the pickup truck concept next month, when Tesla will finally unveil the true design.
