When Elon Musk presents Tesla’s all-electric pickup (or rather, ute in Australia) in November, the auto world may just get a bit more than it bargained for.

We’ve been keeping tabs on the developments around Musk’s pet electric ute project since he first mused to the Twitterverse about what tweeps may like to see in such a vehicle, but as the big reveal day dawns closer, Tesla CEO and co-founder Elon Musk has dropped one more juicy tidbit on the electric ute’s design.

He’s also made up a new moniker for the electric ute, which, it has been rumoured, may ultimately be called the Model B (completing the tongue-in-cheek B S3XY range of Tesla’s model names), and for which there have been numerous renders as people try to fathom what the rumoured “cyberpunk” vehicle will look like.

It’s official: Musk said on Monday afternoon (Australian time) that the Tesla “cybertruck” will be unlike anything the Tesla CEO has seen in renders doing the internet rounds, and that it will be more like a “armored personnel carrier from the future“.
