Oh man - Cant wait to see the next gen Roadster, and the idea of a Tesla pickup....  my puddle of drool is already starting.

If it looks even remotely cool, I think at least 30% of the people in Southlake will be driving one of those Tesla pickups

They're also working on a Tesla Van, described as a VW van inspired vehicle.  I'm betting it's a Pickup variant. Low hanging fruit once you have the chassis etc.

True.  In fact, you could base one on the Metris (Mercedes-Benz commercial van chassis) or Sprinter (Dodge and Freightliner commercial van chassis), which I'm surprised Freightliner or Mercedes has NOT done - both are popular for commercial and even residential usage. (Sprinter - residential use?  Yes - any and every use that requires high-top van roofs, and not all of them are commercial, though a lot are.)  Sprinter did NOT leave with Dodge when the Chrysler brands went to Fiat - it stayed with Freightliner and DTNA, where it was sourced.  There are a lot of possibilities where a mostly-green (or all-green) commercial-grade van makes sense - such as where you need greater carry capacity than the John Deere Gator or anything from Bombardier Recreation - which fill that role now.
