First, his words:
12,000 lbs!? How puny. Do you construct children’s toys?
Of course, we need some context here to explain what Musk is referring to, so here's the tweet embedded in full:
It's not a secret that Tesla is working on an electric pickup truck. In fact, it's scheduled to be revealed sometime later this year. As for its towing/hauling abilities, both are still up in the air. However, we do know that the expectations are high...very high.
The truck will be a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive pickup with "crazy torque & a suspension that dynamically adjusts for load. Those will be standard," noted Musk in a previous tweet. We suspect that whatever a Ram 1500 or Ford F-150 can do, Tesla will one-up those figures.
We'll find out the actual info in detail later this year when Tesla reveals its much-anticipated electric truck.
