Tesla founder Elon Musk pulled a trick out of Steve Jobs’ playbook today.
At the Tesla Cybertruck event tonight, Elon Musk unveiled the futuristic Blade Runner-like pickup truck.
It has autopilot included standard, Musk said, a 17” touchscreen, 3,500 pounds of payload capacity, goes from zero to 60 MPH in just 2.9 seconds, and has an adjustable air suspension. In addition, the triple-motor version has “a towing capability of over 14,000 pounds,” Tesla says.
But at the end of the show, Musk hesitated, then said he had “one more thing.” That was Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ signature move: unveil something amazing, then drop one more gem on the audience.
