Tesla Inc will build a pickup not long after producing electric crossover vehicle Model Y, CEO Elon Musk stated on Tuesday.

“I assure that we will make a pickup right after Model Y. Have had the core design/engineering aspects in my mind for nearly 5 years. Am dying to build it,” Musk wrote in a Twitter post.

The Model Y, to be built on the same base as the Model 3 sedan, was tentatively set to start production in mid-2019, Reuters reported in June.

The electric automaker first revealed plans for a pickup last July, together with a “master plan” to develop a commercial truck, a public transport bus and a compact sport utility vehicle.

Musk had stated in April that the pickup would be revealed within 18 to 24 months.
