Tesla has made a name for itself by making high-quality electric cars relatively popular and affordable to the everyday consumer. With yesterday's debut of the Blade Runner-inspired Tesla “Cybertruck,” it’s clear that Elon Musk's company is now attempting to conquer the pick-up truck market, one of the most popular vehicle categories out there. As The Drive points out, one out of every six cars sold in the U.S. is a pick-up truck.

But Tesla will have some competition; the Cybertruck is hardly the only new hyped electric truck coming to the market. A number of old-school automakers are also looking to introduce electric trucks soon, and the start-up Rivian announced an electric truck earlier this year. If you need a new pick-up but would like to move away from fossil fuels, here’s what to look for, though you might need to wait a few years for some of them.


The base model will go from 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, and if that is too slow for you, the high-end model will be able to do that in 2.9 seconds. Production on the base model will begin in late 2021, with production on the high-end model to follow a year later, and Tesla would prefer if you pre-order your electric truck online.

Base models are expected to have a driving range of 230 miles per charge, while a more expensive Mustang Mach-E starting at around $50,000 would be able to drive 300 miles before the battery needs to be recharged.
