Tesla Motors' pickup truck would be similar to that of Ford's F-Series pickup truck, with the F-150 pickup truck being the best-selling vehicle of any kind in the US, so you can see Tesla's motivation. The news comes from Musk's discussion during Business Insider's IGNITION event in New York yesterday. He talked about the pickup truck in a post-interview Q&A, after he was asked if his company would make a fleet truck for companies like FedEx and UPS.

 

He replied, saying that Tesla is currently in the planning stages of the truck, not in the commercial stages, because the market opportunity for commercial trucks is smaller. Musk said that the Tesla pickup truck would be designed with the F-150 as inspiration, because it is just so popular.
