    It looks like Tesla’s CEO is serious about adding a pickup truck to the company’s family of electric-powered vehicles.

    On Tuesday, billionaire Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, took to Twitter to express "deep gratitude" to Tesla owners around the world, asking, "How can we improve further?"

    "Need an electric pickup truck please," one of his followers replied.

    Musk then said that he plans to roll out a Tesla pickup after bringing the Model Y electric crossover to market. The Model Y is set to be launched in 2019, following the production of the Model 3 mass-market vehicle.

    "Have had the core design/engineering elements in my mind for almost 5 years. Am dying to build," Musk wrote.

    ​As it often happens when it comes to Tesla and Musk’s other companies, the news has excited many on social media.

    ​Musk first showed early designs of the vehicle in November, when his company rolled out its semi truck.

    ​"It’s a pickup truck that can carry a pickup truck. You’ll actually be able to legally drive that with a driver’s license," Musk said.
