Long, long ago (er, last year), Swedish robotics enthusiast Simone Giertz had a simple problem: she didn’t want an electric car, she wanted an electric truck. Unfortunately, at the time there was no such thing in existence, so she bought a Tesla and together with a team, turned the entire thing into a pickup truck (humorously named Truckla). Below is the “trailer” of what they ended up building…
TRUCKLA: the world’s first Tesla pickup truck
You can view the progress video* for all the details of the truck’s design and how it was built, and even see how it stands up (aesthetically) next to the official Tesla truck* that was later unveiled.
