Yesterday was a big day for Tesla [1] as it celebrated the arrival of its second major award with Motor Trend naming the Model S [2] its 2013 Car of the Year [3]. After receiving the award, Tesla CEO Elon Musk [4] was interviewed by Motor Trend, in which he provided more details about Tesla’s [5] future, which may include a pickup truck.

Tesla has already unveiled its next model the Model X crossover [6] and after the crossover arrives Tesla will introduce a new smaller sedan that will go head to head with the BMW [7] 3 Series.

This is the first time that we’re hearing about a Tesla pickup truck, and Musk’s suggestion confirms that Tesla [1] is intent on becoming a full-line automaker. Elon Musk didn’t provide any other details about the possible pickup truck and it remains to be seen if Tesla can succeed in building an electric pickup [8] in the highly competitive truck segment. Given the success of the Model S [9] sedan a Tesla pickup could be a game changer in the segment.
