Tesla is set to unveil its pickup, which CEO Elon Musk called "Cybertrack" in Los Angeles on Thursday.
Musk said he was more excited about the pickup than any other vehicle in Tesla's future lineup. Outside of Musk's personal enthusiasm, the pickup truck can boost Tesla's profit margins, as pickups tend to be more profitable for car makers than sedans. Most of Tesla's current sales come from its Model 3 sedan.
While Tesla has a history of beating its competitors for electric vehicles in areas such as range, acceleration and technology, Musk has made predictions about Tesla's pickup capabilities that are even bolder by his standards.
Here's what he said so far.
