Okay, maybe not entirely but its hard not to notice the different approach Rivian is taking and Tesla's slow moves to catch up. Rivian's CEO talks about what they offer compared to Tesla and even gives Tesla props on what they do well. If you're on the fence about which brand to go with, this is a great place to start. In my case if I wanted a sportier EV, Tesla without a question, but that's no longer the case.

I've never been a fan of the minimalist design of Tesla products and there have been so many reported build quality issues with their newer Model 3. I know there have been mentions of a pickup joining their lineup, but I worry it will essentially be the Model X with a bed.
I don't expect many people here to be interested in them. Its a completely different end of the EV experience but there will be a minority of people that do want both something utilitarian and one that's minimalist.

Tesla can survive if they play their cards right and it will require making some drastic changes.

I have started to see renderings of what the upcoming Tesla pickup could look like. So far none of them have caught my interest like the one below has.
Biggest perk to me is it deviated from Tesla's current design language the most, taking on more RAM influence.

What do you guys think?

At least it actually looks different from the rest of their designs. The new Model Y looks the exact same as the X imo. The teaser images that have surfaced online do support a more boxy shape for the pickup.
Keep in mind its just someones idea of what a Tesla pickup might look like, which is a far cry from what Tesla has been showing us. Recently its been this black box. I don't understand what Tesla is trying to achieve with this so called teaser
