(Pocket-lint) - During its Model Y reveal event in March, Tesla teased an all-electric pickup truck to be unveiled this summer.

However, it is now September and there has been no sign of the truck, apart from the teaser image originally tweeted by Elon Musk.


Indeed, we've not heard a peep on the vehicle since. Until now, that is.

Over the weekend just gone, Musk replied to a Twitter query on the illusive pickup. He revealed that an unveiling event for EV could finally happen in November.

So it shouldn't be long now before we actually see a Tesla electric pickup truck - one that Musk previously described as a "cyberpunk" truck and inspired by the film Blade Runner.

Until then, we'll have to make do with the original image for clues.

The tease, which was only displayed during the live-stream for a few seconds after the Model Y launch, doesn't really show much. We can see what appears to be a hood for cargo space. It could be at a weird angle, however, and we might be seeing the truck's front end here.

Essentially, we're looking at a long, flat surface with a Tesla logo connected to another flat surface at 90 degrees, and there's a light bar separating the surfaces.

Roll on November.
