    I'd like to see Tesla team up with Ford to make an EV-F150:wink:

    Elon has often stated that he is very interested in building an EV truck. He of course knows that Ford makes zillions selling the F150. I think Tesla will beat Ford into the EV truck market because Ford won't be able to source enough batteries. All Tesla needs is Gigafactory #2.

    Ford has confirmed a hybrid F150 by 2020, so they are headed in the right direction.

    I'd buy a Tesla pickup in a heartbeat.
