After looking at the ‘Tesla Allterrain’ concept to help us imagine Tesla’s next pickup truck, we now turn to an artist rendering based on the old GMC Denali XT concept.
Tobias Buttner used images of the GMC Denali XT, a concept unveiled by GM in 2008 that was never produced, added a Tesla-inspired front fascia, a Tesla badge and a few other design details like door handles and headlights.
The result is what he imagines the Tesla pickup truck could look like.
When CEO Elon Musk confirmed last week that Tesla would bring a pickup truck to market, he said it would be a ‘new kind of pickup’, and I doubt he meant to just say it. will be battery powered.
Here is the concept (photos via AutoGuide)
I don’t know if it’s different enough to be considered “a new kind of pickup”. Actually, I don’t think so, but I still like it.
With an air suspension capable of lowering the platform for highway driving and enjoying a low center of gravity with a heavy battery pack, while still holding it in place for good clearance when needed. I could see a concept like this being a successful fully electric pickup truck program.
Maybe with active aerodynamic features?
Let us know what you think of this concept in the comments section below.
