Wikipedia includes pickups in the "Truck
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truck>" category.
But HGV <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_goods_vehicle> excludes many
pickups because of the H in HGV ("GCM
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gross_combined_weight_rating> over 3500kg").

An aside: in the EU, and hence for the time being also in the UK, HGV is
superceded by LGV - no idea why, as the criterion is mass over 3500kg)
