Tesla Model 3 gets uted

By Mitchell TulkMitchell Tulk

Instead of waiting for Tesla to release its own pick-up, a Swedish YouTuber living in the US decided to make one herself.

Simone Giertz took a Model 3 and transformed the four-door sedan into a two-door beaut ute.

Called ‘Truckla’, she brought a brand-new standard range Model 3, stripped out the interior and cut the roof back from the B pillar.

The structural rigidity was affected by this, so a roll cage was fitted to prevent the car from falling in on itself.

Simone and her crack team of engineers then proceeded to add the rear cab from a GMC Canyon and the tray bed from a Ford F150.

To top off her creation, a lumber rack and spotlights were also added to give this Tesla a workhorse look.

Elon is going to have a hard time trying to top this.

Will the Truckla be better than Tesla's actual ute? Let us know in the comments.
