It is noted that the stand Rivian was near a huge area of the Ford, and thus easily gathered a much larger audience. Perhaps this was the reason that Ford also announced the development of electric pickup.

Tesla is accustomed to leadership, therefore, cannot afford to stay behind its competitors. At what stage is the development of a Tesla pickup is still unknown, but in November 2018 Elon Musk shared that the coming novelty will be made . In an interview with Recode, he shared that he doesn't care whether the car is in demand — he just wants to release it. In any case, he may issue a more modest model that will surely find its audience.

It is believed that the pickups are ideal for equipment with motors. They are so many places that manufacturers can install a huge battery, energy which is enough to even charge other electric machines or tools. Tesla pickup truck could gain a lot of popularity in the fleet — owners will certainly be interested in lower maintenance requirements and reduced fuel costs.
