(Newser) – Elon Musk, billionaire entrepreneur and founder of Tesla Motors, hinted at some very exciting news for his electric car company at a recent Business Insider conference. The CEO revealed that Tesla's next electric vehicle may be a full-size pickup truck. Why pickups? Probably because 3 of the top 5 selling cars in America are all pickup trucks: the Ford F-150, the Chevrolet Silverado, and the Ram 1500. Musk put it this way: "If you're trying to replace the most gasoline miles driven, you have to look at what people are buying."
