Given enough time, Elon Musk will eventually push Tesla to add more EV models to its lineup. Right now, we’re looking at the Model S, Model X, and Model 3 as its available offerings. Meanwhile, the Roadster, Semi, And Model 3 are on its way soon. So far, we have a sedan, a coupe, a crossover SUV, and a semi-trailer truck, but we know there will be more. On the other hand, if you have the skills, the time, the tools, and the willingness to destroy a perfectly good Model 3, then check out the Tesla Truckla.
What we’re looking at here is a custom all-electric single-cab pickup truck. To give credit where it’s due, this is one impressive work that showcases what Tesla can potentially offer in the future. The mad scientist behind this project is Simone Luna Louise Söderlund Giertz or just Simone Giertz for short. This Swedish mechanical maven loves to tinker around with robotics and also dabbles around as an inventor, TV host, and a YouTuber.
Her DIY masterpiece takes a brand new Tesla Model 3, an angle grinder, a welder, and some elbow grease to complete. In our opinion, the process is cringe-worthy because you’re seeing a pristine sedan getting cut up like it’s in a gory slasher movie. The part of the video where she starts to key the trunk makes us tear up. Anyway, her team started off by stripping off the interior of the vehicle then proceeded to remove the beams and the rear structure of the car. Thankfully, after installing the bed as well as the cargo rack, the Tesla Truckla becomes one awesome rideCheck out her YouTube channel here
