Having taken the passenger car market by storm with its Model S and Model X, Tesla is now looking to shake up the commercial vehicle segment. The brand, in fact, is expected to reveal an all-electric truck this year.
The upcoming model is expected to come with a real-world range of between 320 and 480km. According to Scott Perry, an executive at US-based fleet operator Ryder System Inc., Tesla will roll out the standard model and then follow it up with a long range version capable of covering distances up to 1,600km on a single charge.
Unlike most full-size trucks in the US and Europe, Tesla’s all-electric truck will not feature a sleeper cab. This arrangement, in all probability, will be made available with the long range version. When launched, this commercial vehicle offering will be sold alongside the Model S, Model X and the recently unveiled Model 3.
