The price tag is high, but I am told it is on par with high-end ICE trucks (i.e. 150 Raptor)
If this gets to production, it will be an amazingly capable vehicle (truck and SUV sharing over 90% of parts). The engineering seems intriguing. EV motors on each wheel, 0-60 between 4.9 and 3 seconds depending on model, and ranges between 240, 310, and 410. High torque starting at 0 rpm. Skid plate built in and made with Kevlar. . . .
From the pictures the bed appears worthless for hauling ----- reminds me of a bigger Baja, or the Honda Ridgeline. I guess it would be good for the guy who goes to Home Depot for mulch and what not, but I can't see that thing going out into the woods for firewood. That's what I meant.
For that price tag one could get a sweet "real" truck.
I'm getting the pick up truck if they produce them at the cost they say. I put my deposit down. Going to put solar panels on the roof for fuel. I don't need a pick up but always wanted one. I put to many miles on vehicles to justify fuel costs.
If it works out the way I plan I'll be done with gas. Zero to 60 in three seconds is pretty cool to.
