UPDATE (November 7,2019): After a major delay in release, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed an unveiling date for the company’s highly-anticipated all-electric “cybertruck.” The pickup truck will be revealed on November 21 in Los Angeles “near SpaceX rocket factory,” according to a Tweet posted by Musk.
TechCrunch noted that November 21 is the same date listed in the opening title sequence of Blade Runner, and based on his description of the truck, there might be a connection here. “It’s closer to an armored personnel carrier from the future,” he stated in a separate Tweet responding to sketches of the truck circulating around the Internet.
Stay tuned for more details once they surface on November 21.
