Kara Swisher posted a fascinating interview with Elon Musk this morning both in podcast and written form:
He says they'll have fully autonomous driving modes next year.
The pickup truck tho. Here's what he said:
Then we’ve got the pickup truck, which — actually, I’m personally most excited about the pickup truck.
Well I can’t talk about the details, but it’s gonna be like a really futuristic-like cyberpunk, “Blade Runner” pickup truck. It’s gonna be awesome, it’s gonna be amazing. This will be heart-stopping. It stops my heart. It’s like, oh, it’s great.
Who do you wanna sell that to? People that buy F— whatever?
You know, I actually don’t know if a lot of people will buy this pickup truck or not, but I don’t care.
I mean I do care, eventually, you know. Like sure, I care. We wanna get gasoline, diesel pickup trucks off the road.
He has said before that it will be dual-motor 4WD and dynamic suspension that adjusts for load. Who's in? (I dunno where this pic is from, I'm sure it's someone's imagination.)
