"Super singels"? All I see are same size tires as on the front
ok and I am thinking the payload weight capacity of that single tire pair probably exceeds that of a 1-ton dually. Maybe not. I still like the idea of the larger single tire. Just a cartoon anyway and not even from Tesla.

Ah I see, I was thinking this pickup was aimed toward the grocery-getters, not the hauler market. My mistake.

Don't confuse the completely unknown Tesla PU with the EV-F150 or this cartoon.

So you have an Amish guy with flip up sunglasses sitting on the running board. He apparently lost his hat and is wearing blue suede shoes. He is being eyeballed by guy with a Ram, who is picking his nose? On the other side is a 4'10" tall woman with size 15 gunboat feet, taking a picture with a Kodak disposable camera.

Why no suicide doors like the Semi?

The diesel boys will no longer get to say "the one with the most lug nuts wins". I do like the concept of super singles shown.

I wonder if center position driving could catch on.

Real deal scheduled to be seen on November 21st.

That doesn't look like a military personnel carrier truck to me.[emoticon]

Yes the Amish guy's truck looks more like a trash truck than a consumer pick-up.
Maybe he hauls his horses in there.

It looks , by the design to be trying to minimize the wheelbase, exactly the opposite of what RV or trailer towers want except for the very small ones.

With no front overhang, crash test ratings will be interesting too.

It looks more like the Ark II than a military vehicle.
