Tesla's chief promises pick-up truck and new features

Tesla's chief has pledged to make a pick-up truck as part of future plans for the electric vehicle-maker.

Elon Musk made the promise on Twitter after asking his followers for suggestions about how the firm could improve.

He said the open-backed truck would follow the Model Y - a yet-to-be detailed car, which is expected to be based on its Model 3 sedan.

But experts note Tesla has suffered repeated delivery delays.

That has led some to question whether the loss-making company can meet its existing commitments - which also include a forthcoming articulated lorry and sports car.
Mr Musk also made several promises about new features Tesla intends to add to its existing vehicles, including intelligent windscreen wipers.
