Multi-billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk has announced that he will unveil the Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck on 21 November 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 extended 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 (5 November).

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."

Musk in April 2017 mentioned on Twitter the desire to produce a pickup truck, before the first Model 3 sedans had been handed over to customers. At the time, Musk tweeted that a pickup truck would be unveiled in 18 to 24 months.
