Tesla has unveiled its first passenger pickup truck, the Cybertruck.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the highly anticipated truck Thursday night in Los Angeles, proclaiming that “trucks have been the same for a very long time” before introducing the unconventionally angular truck.

The Cybertruck starts at $39,900 for the single motor rear-wheel-drive and goes up to $69,900 for the tri motor all-wheel-drive, with self-driving as an extra $7,000 add-on. Production is expected to begin late-2021.

Tesla isn’t the only automaker in the electric pickup truck market. Ford is now developing an all-electric F-150, and Bollinger Motors recently introduced its fully-electric all-wheel-drive B2 Pickup Truck, although it has a steeper price point and a lower range than the Cybertruck. Rivian, a startup backed by Ford and Amazon, is also developing an electric pickup.

Tesla claims the Cybertruck is the “most powerful tool [it has] ever built.” Keep scrolling to see why:
