Humanity may not have reached vehicular advancements like hover boards and flying cars – but something pretty exciting is about to be unveiled.

Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk has revealed that the company is about to reveal its newest invention – an electric lorry which can reportedly drive itself.

Writing in a tweet, Musk said the unveiling – and first test drives – are tentatively scheduled for October 26. They will take place in Hawthorne, California – where Tesla’s design studio is based.

He added: “Worth seeing this beast in person. It’s unreal.”


According to reports, the battery-powered truck can travel up to 1,000 miles on a single tank of fuel, though there is some cynicism as to whether this will be the case.

Commentators have said the battery technology – which is bigger and heavier than conventional fuels – may not be able to match diesel when it comes to a power source.

But Tesla is targeting the commercial trucking industry with this latest design – and it appears interested in the vehicle.

The reveal is just one of the major projects Tesla is focusing on this year. It has also started production of the Model 3 – the company’s lower priced car.

With a price point of $35,000 to $50,000, it will aim to open the brand up to a greater number of consumers.
