Information about electric Tesla truck is in the Internet for several years. At the end of January it became known that the long-awaited presentation of the novelty will take place in the summer of 2019, so Elon Musk became more likely to share interesting details. We already know that the entrepreneur believes pickup his favorite among all the cars, and in spite of all the wants it was made in the style of “blade Runner”. Judging by the latest tweets Ilona, another feature of the novelties will be the traction force.
Recently the founder of Tesla publicly ridiculed the power pickup Dodge Ram 2019. The message of the ad account Dodge about his ability daily to carry 12,000 pounds (5,500 kilograms) of cargo, Elon Musk responded with:
12 000 pounds!? As negligible. You make toys?
This is not the first time the entrepreneur compares the products of the competitors with toys. Before the announcement of charging stations Supercharger V3 he said that compared to her Porsche with a charging capacity of 350 kW seem to be too childish trinket. At the time, the comment was unconvincing and even silly, because in fact the charging ability of the Supercharger V3 hardly exceeded 250 kW.
12,000 lbs!? How puny. Do you construct children’s toys?

If you believe the tweets Ilona, the future truck will have more features including mileage to 804 kilometres, all-wheel drive transmission suspension and the traction power equal to an unimaginable 300 000 pounds (about 130,000 kilos). It’s possible that Elon was just being dramatic, and a lifting capacity of 30,000 pounds.
300,000 lb towing capacity
