Tesla to Make Pickup Trucks

Elon Musk

CBJ — Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk says the electric car company will make a pickup truck after the release of its next model.

In a message on Twitter Musk said: “I promise that we will make a pickup truck right after Model Y.”

The Model Y is an electric SUV that’s due for release in about two years.

Musk said the pickup would probably be slightly bigger than a Ford F-150.

It’s a broadening of horizons for Tesla, which has mainly focused on producing passenger cars over the past decade. It plans to make electric semis and has invested in battery production.
