It seems that 2019 is going to be the year of EVs, with it being a talking point both within Aussie politics, and across the world stage – Great Wall are bringing an electric ute to market, and Toyota have confirmed we’ll have an electric HiLux within the next six years. Elon Musk shared a teaser image earlier this year of the front end of the Model P, and with more than a little excitement mounting an Istanbul-based designer, Emre Husman has offered up his own rendition of the Tesla Model P concept art.
Everyone (read: Elon Musk), has been incredibly tight-lipped about the new Tesla Pickup, except to say it’s going to be futuristic. The term ‘Cyber-Punk’ has been used in many tweets and releases from Tesla, with expectations the design will follow trends offered up in the movie Tron or Blade Runner. The design that we’ve seen so far from Tesla manages to give an aggressive wide look, yet a streamlined look with narrow panels and angles.
The official release for the Model P is set for later this year, with no specific date announced as yet. If the actual Tesla design looks even half as good as the Model P concept art from Emre Husmen, then we’re going to be in for something rather special!
The teaser image below, is the only real reveal of the Model P to date. The designs of the concept art we’re seeing still follow the same lines as we’ve seen in the real teaser, so the concept art could actually be pretty close to reality. At this stage, we’re not going to lie – we would happily carry around a generator and 80 litres of unleaded to be able to drive this thing across the Simmo!
