I wonder if this pick up will be suitable as a delivery truck? I'm a courier and would love that! If it's as big as Elon claims then it sounds like it would be possible.
I burn $1000 worth of diesel a month drive 160 -200 km daily.....
Sure would be awesome to go electric!
Rivian's delivery Van isn't big enough for my purpose my box is 16' x 8'

Here's me crossing my fingers!!!!

How much weight in there? I'm thinking the bed will be 5' or maybe 6', not 8'. It's also quite possible it will be a unibody (scaled up S/X/3 chassis) and not body on frame. This may make it harder to do things like change the bed to a box.

My truck is a 4500 so 1.5ton.
Didn't Elon say his new truck could have a F150 in it's bed?
Getting delivery trucks off of fossil fuels would be great for the environment

Well, Elon says a lot of things :p That's why we're all so eagerly awaiting the reveal so we can finally see what they're thinking.

But I agree, delivery trucks use a ton of fuel. Fingers crossed it will tick all the right boxes!
