Musk pledges Tesla pick-up will have 'game-changing' new feature

Tesla is also developing a new Roadster and a Semi truck. It will compete in a wider selection of segments than established internal combustion engine brands such as BMW, Hyundai and Subaru.

Musk obviously didn't have time to respond to every suggestion, but a tweet about incorporating automatic windshield wipers that dynamically change speed based on the amount of rain did catch Musk's attention.

A Twitter user asked CEO Elon Musk about them on Monday, in response to a tweet from Musk soliciting advice from Tesla owners.

"I promise that we will make a pickup truck right after Model Y", Musk tweeted. "Am dying to build it", he added. Production is set to start on the Model Y in late 2019. "I promise that we will make a pickup truck right after Model Y", Musk tweeted, admitting that he has had the core design and engineering elements in his mind for almost five years.

Musk had said in April that the pickup truck would be unveiled within 18 to 24 months. He's mentioned the pick-up truck plans throughout his Master Plan Part Deux as well. In 2016, pickup trucks made up a little more than a third of all vehicles that sold for over $50,000.

"We talked to stores in California doing as many as a dozen per week with around 10 being the average, and we estimate stores outside of California were doing something closer to half a dozen per week", KeyBanc said in a note, according to Reuters.

What's more, demand is growing. Ford announced earlier this year that it would spend $4.5 billion to introduce 13 new electric and hybrid vehicles globally within the next five years - including a hybrid version of its best-selling F-150 pickup truck by 2020.

Earlier this year Morgan Stanley Research analyst Adam Jonas wrote that General Motors generates 100 percent of its USA profits from large SUVs and pickup trucks.
