Make room in the garage — Tesla's Elon Musk said he wants to add an electric pickup truck to his company's lineup.

Musk tweeted that after Tesla gets the Model Y out, they'll move on to a pickup. "Have had the core design/engineering elements in my mind for almost five years," he said. "Am dying to build it." Musk also revealed that the truck would be similar in size to the Ford F-150, but "maybe slightly bigger to account for a really gamechanging (I think) feature I'd like to add."
