Tesla's long-awaited electric 'cybertruck' soon to be unveiled

PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Tesla CEO Elon Musk has released the unveiling date for the Palo Alto based company's latest electric vehicle.

Musk said the truck looks like something out of Blade Runner and has a "heart-stopping" design.

Designs of a truck were first put into play in 2013, but nothing concrete had been developed until recently.

Details about the truck have been kept very quiet, but Musk has revealed that the truck will seat six, start around $50,000 and offer 400 to 500 miles of range off a single charge.
