Musk told the podcast “the goal is to be a better truck than an F-150, in terms of truck-like functionality, and be a better sports car than a [Porsche] 911.” He has previously said that it would feature all-wheel-drive, a self-leveling suspension, a range of 400 to 500 miles per charge and the ability to tow 300,000 pounds, which is unlikely to be its SAE-approved rating.

Although Teslas main revenue source is set to come from the Model 3 and, in the near future, the Model Y, the EV automaker has no intention of letting go of the high-end market. Not only will Model S and Model X production continue (redesigns for both are expected in the not too distant future), but that all-new hypercar-killing Roadster is due to arrive sometime in 2020.

The $49,000 figure happens to be right around the current average transaction price for an F-150, which starts under $30,000 but can be optioned up to over $70,000. Ford is working on an all-electric model that could go on sale as soon as 2021, which would likely be the earliest that Tesla could launch its truck.

And speaking of which, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been rather chatty lately regarding the status of his company and new product during the Ride The Lighting podcast. For example, he provided a very clear indication as to how much the also upcoming Tesla pickup truck will cost, but also a very interesting tidbit about the Roadster. Specifically, its annual production output.

Zachary Shahan Zach is tryin to help society help itself (and other species). He spends most of his time here on CleanTechnica as its director and chief editor. Hes also the president of Important Media and the director/founder of EV Obsession and Solar Love. Zach is recognized globally as an electric vehicle, solar energy, and energy storage expert. He has presented about cleantech at conferences in India, the UAE, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, the USA, and Canada. Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in. But he offers no professional investment advice and would rather not be responsible for you losing money, so dont jump to conclusions.

According to Musk, the plan now is to cap Roadster production at 10,000 units per year. 10,000! No other hypercar is built in quantities like that. But again, Musk has proven at times to be overly optimistic. He also claimed that no other car today can match the Roadster, specifically regarding all performance aspects and track driving.

“Were going to do things with the new Roadster that are kind of unfair to other cars, he said. In addition, the Roadster is “crushingly good relative to the next best gasoline sports car.

Tesla previously released some of the specs and, well, theyre outright incredible. Zero to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, 0 to 100 mph in 4.2 seconds, over a 250 mph top speed, a quarter-mile time of 8.8 seconds, 620 miles of range on a single charge, and an insane 7,400 lb-ft of torque. Now imagine 10,000 of these suckers hitting the road every year for several years. Given everything, its quite clear Musk intends to disrupt the hypercar business the same way he shook mainstream brands to their internal combustion engine cores.
