Report: Tesla working on Roadster successor, maybe even a pickup

Earlier this week, we learned some new details on Tesla’s upcoming electric sedan that will be comparable in size to the BMW 3-Series.

New reports now suggest that the company is also working on a successor to the Tesla Roadster, but this time it won’t be based on a Lotus architecture. Word on the street is that Tesla will just use a scaled-down version of the Model S platform.

Now here comes the real kicker. Tesla is apparently considering a light pickup that will look something along the sides of the Honda Ridgeline. The model will be spun off the Model X crossover but won’t be used for heavy towing. Instead the Tesla pickup will be picked at those with an active-lifestyle – think California surfer types.
