Put a few to work out in the oil fields and see if it survives.

Doubt it's Vaporware. Been following for a bit now, really interested, and hoping my work will get them.

This is actually going to be sweet. The front or "Frunk" has a lot of storage opportunity. The fold out bench and place to stow boots would be very helpful. The range is more than adequate for urban/suburban and some rural scenarios. Superior power delivery. When I'm at work, I don't care what my [insert company vehicle here] looks like.

The packaging of an EV combined with the pick up truck platform is very interesting.

That's hideous
Elaborate. Because to me it looks slicker than a RAM 1500 or a Ford F-150.

This truck has a range of 640 km's between charges, now thats more than enough for an average person. If it comes on 4x4 I'm sold. It should cost the same as a Tesla.

It should cost the same as Tesla SUV?

So between $110,000 - $200,000 Canadian? Highly doubt an average person will care about this truck if that's the pricing.

The average person is not the average truck owner, and for the average truck owner he’s pretty reasonably accurate - urban/suburban use and some rural applications.

It’ll not replace 250/350 style tricks used by farmers and 640km of range is just getting into the reasonable range for overland rigs (bear in mind high power electric hookups aren’t as prevelant in the desert).

That’s not to say it’s not a nice vehicle. I like it, but it is a pretty bespoke vehicle that is going to be predominantly the domain of the urban cowboy/Silicon valley engineer. Bearing in mind the 640km version will be around $100k US.

How does the payload and towing compare to typical 1/2 ton? How do those thing affect the 400mi range?

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

My guess is this company will build a few units to satisfy some consumer demand then try to sell itself to a larger established vehicle manufacturer to do the real heavy lifting. Unless they’ve got billions of dollars sitting in the bank to start up a full-blown assembly plant.

Quad motor electric AWD... so a dedicated electric motor for each wheel. That would get rid of the drive shafts and axles, reduce weight significantly and be very simple mechanically. If this has similar payload and capacity of an F150 I'd consider it for my next purchase
