Multi-billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk has announced that he will unveil the Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck on November 21 at an event in Los Angeles.

“Cybertruck unveil on Nov 21 in LA near SpaceX rocket factory,” Musk tweeted.

Additionally, Musk has briefly talked about and pitched the idea of the “Tesla Cybertruck,” to the US military.

“This is based on an incorrect Electrek article. The Air Force asked me to speak at a startup conference called “Pitch Day” & I happened to mention Cybertruck. They don’t buy APCs. It’s the Air Force,” Musk noted in a tweet.

Musk originally planned to reveal the truck earlier this year, but he announced in September that he has extented the launch event to November.

Tesla CEO has mentioned that the forthcoming pickup truck has a “heart-stopping” design, with better utility than a Ford F-150 and superior performance to a basic Porsche 911, The Verge reported on Wednesday.

He also earlier said that the truck would look “pretty sci-fi.” “If somebody just wants a truck that looks like trucks have looked for the last 20 years, 30 years, or 40 years, this probably isn’t for them.”

Electric Vehicle (EV) maker Tesla has unveiled its first Model 3 made-in-China at Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai and started to give media test drives of the vehicle.

Tesla has been expected to focus on Model 3 production at its Shanghai automotive factory, where it mulls producing as many as 3,000 vehicles per week next year, Teslarati reported recently.

The Shanghai Gigafactory is Tesla’s first assembly plant outside of the US and the first wholly-owned foreign auto factory in China.

Last month, the automaker confirmed that it has produced full vehicles at Gigafactory Shanghai as part of its trial production.

“We are already producing full vehicles on a trial basis, from body, to paint and to general assembly, at Gigafactory Shanghai. We have cleared initial milestones toward our manufacturing license and are working toward finalizing the license and meeting other governmental requirements before we begin ramping production and delivery of vehicles from Shanghai,” the company said.
