Elon Musk Wants to Build an Electric Pickup Truck and Supersonic Jet

Elon Musk, ever eager to convince everyone, everywhere, that EVs are The Future, sees a day when Tesla Motors offers a pickup truck, allowing ranchers and construction workers to know the joy of electric propulsion. Oh, and he also wants to build an electric airplane capable of supersonic flight.

Musk took the stage for two interviews in New York last decembre and in typical off-the-cuff fashion, the Tesla CEO and co-founder gave his PR team heart palpitations when he confirmed that the automaker wants to make an electric pickup. It’s not an unreasonable idea, considering the Model S will underpin the Model X SUV, and that could be transformed into a truck by nixing the doors and replacing them with a bed. What’s less realistic is the airplane.
