Elon Musk Says Tesla Pickup Truck Next on Vehicle Lineup

A pickup was briefly mentioned by Tesla at around the same time as the Roadster and semi truck were launched to the press, but in typical Musk mercurial style, plans have already changed. While Musk had previously announced plans of a pickup, the latest tweets clarifies where it ranks in Tesla's growing list of priorities.

Elon Musk said in a tweet on Tuesday (December 26), "I promise that we will make a pickup truck right after Model Y. Have had the core design/engineering elements in my mind for nearly 5 years". "Have had the core design/engineering elements in my mind for nearly 5 years". Am dying to build it, "stated Elon Musk in a tweet posted on 26 December replying to Twitter user Vancouver Seed Bank".

And prior to the unveiling of the Tesla Semi, Musk responded to a request on Twitter for a light duty pickup by saying: "What if we just made a mini version of the Tesla Semi?"

"In the long term, the trend will continue to be toward lower emissions and more electrified vehicles", Joe Hinrichs, Ford's president for the Americas, said in April. Intriguingly, Musk followed that up with another tweet that said the Tesla pick-up would be similar in size to the Ford F150: "Maybe slightly bigger to account for a really gamechanging (I think) feature I'd like to add".

Chinese Ships Spotted Selling Oil to N.Korea
There you have some bad news about Donald Trump's unusual presidency: At times he doesn't even know what he doesn't know. Putting aside prickly trade disputes with China appears to be a big part of the deal Trump envisions reaching with Xi.

The CEO also gave a high-level view of the energy industry's continued transition to renewable energy sources, saying, "Sustainable energy production with solar and batteries will grow much faster than auto on a percentage basis".

Adding a pickup truck to its lineup would make Tesla the first full-line electric automaker.

On the other hand, Roadster 2 quickly earned the tag of world's quickest production vehicle, as Musk described it as a "smackdown" to the fossil fuel-addicted auto industry. Tesla originally expected to make 5,000 Model 3s per week by the end of 2017; it's now forecasting to hit that total by the end of March. In November, Tesla declared its biggest quarterly loss to date of $619 million.

"Is this the year investors will say, 'Enough's enough, ' or will they continue to fund Tesla?".
