Guessing Tusk saw the Toyota commercial showing their pickup towing a stripper Shuttle, which was listed at 190,000 lbs

Of course Tusk won't be out done...

Tesla will finally unveil its long-awaited electric pickup truck on November 21st, Elon Musk tweeted on Wednesday. The truck, which Musk has dubbed “Cybertruck,” is supposed to look like something straight out of Blade Runner, the CEO has said.

The truck will be unveiled at Tesla’s design studio in Los Angeles, California, which sits on the same lot as SpaceX’s headquarters. Musk originally planned to reveal the pickup truck earlier this year, but he announced in September that he was pushing the event back to November.

Musk has said the forthcoming pickup truck has a “heart-stopping” design, with better utility than a Ford F-150 and superior performance to a basic Porsche 911.

#2. 300+ miles on a charge.

#3. Less than 50K.

#4. Better that a Porsche 911.

#5. Will haul more than 300,000 lbs.

I want close to 600 miles range unladen. The rest are not important.

But lots of background data that isn't opinion. Pretty interesting.

"We can't say too much about the vehicles though, as these are more like visions than actual prototypes."

A key phrase.
