The Tesla pickup (?) is hideous
Why? What makes any vehicle "hideous"?

By its nature, cars are unnatural things. We may look at a ferrari and say "that is a beautiful vehicle", but what actually makes it beautiful? And by comparison, what makes people see something like a Pontiac Aztec or a Nissan Cube as 'ugly' (as they are often characterized as)?

(Note: I do recognize that some people might decide they don't like its appearance, but again, that's just a personal preference thing, rather than some objective measure of 'hideous'.)
and impractical.
Impractical how?

The range appears to be not bad. (Yes, long distances can be problematic without knowing where proper charging stations are, but not everyone uses their vehicles on long road trips.)

?Impact pointed out the towing capacity is 10,000-14,000 pounds. Googling some of the specs for the F150, its towing capacity seems to be between 5000 and 13000 pounds (depending on the engine), so it appears to be roughly comparable to some of the more well known pickup trucks. The payload capacity also seems to be roughly equivalent to the F150 too.

Now the only other thing I can think of that might be an issue is the volume of the truck bed. (I would actually have to see the 2 vehicles side-by-side to determine whether it is an issue or not.)
