It’s the product the Tesla CEO is “personally most fired up about,” he said in his interview with Swisher.
Asked about whether the vehicle would fly with consumers, Musk said: “You know, I actually don’t know if a lot of people will buy this pickup truck or not, but I don’t care.”
He added: “I mean I do care, eventually, you know. Like sure, I care. We wanna get gasoline, diesel pickup trucks off the road.”
Musk said the pickup truck is “something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time.” He said that, if the vehicle only finds favor with a small number of customers, “I guess we’ll make a more conventional truck in the future.”
