Elon Musk has announced that the firm's forthcoming Tesla all-electric pickup truck will be sold for not less than $50,000.That's less than N15.3 million.
Elon revealed this on Ryan McCaffrey's podcast, a Telsa enthusiast.
You should be able to buy a really great truck for $49k or less
Naijauto has compared Telsa's electric truck price tag to that of the Rivian R1T electric truck that was debuted last year. The Rivian is a competitor and it's base price was $69,000(N21 million). Looking at it, the Rivian is sure a high-end truck over Telsa's truck which is going to be sold as one-premium pickup.
There are speculations that the Telsa all-electric pickup will come fitted with lots of technologies. Elon even said they were expecting the truck to be bigger and better than a Ford F-150 when it comes to its functionality as a truck.
