Tesla pickup to have AWD, 'crazy torque,' 240V outlets

by Justin King

Elon Musk has asked his Twitter followers to recommend \"seriously next level\" features.

Tesla chief Elon Musk has invited his Twitter followers to recommend features for the company's upcoming pickup truck.

The executive is already promising a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system with "crazy torque" and a suspension system that dynamically adjusts for load. "Those will be standard," he says.

The pickup will also use its high-voltage lithium-ion battery to provide power for 240-volt industrial equipment, such as welders, all day in the field without requiring a generator.

For easy loading into the bed, Musk suggests the tailgate will rotate down to near ground level. The truck will also feature a 360-degree camera and automatic parallel parking.

What would you love to see in a Tesla pickup truck? I have a few things in mind, but what do you think are small, but important nuances & what would be seriously next level?

Tesla is not expected to launch a pickup until it has put the Model Y crossover onto the market sometime in 2020.
