(Nov 22): Tesla Inc Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk took to the stage late Thursday to reprise a familiar role: pitching a future vehicle to a throng of adoring fans. This time, it’s the “Cybertruck” -- his name for Tesla’s new electric pickup truck.

The angular vehicle, with a stainless-steel skin, starts at US$39,900 ($54,371) and will come in three variants, Musk told a packed audience in Hawthorne, California. Customers can order the truck with just a US$100 deposit, though production “nears in late 2021,” Tesla said on its website.
