It's not meant to look pretty, or to haul anything. It's just a prototype to test the concept. We are still decades away from weaning ourselves off of the petroleum teat.

I also read that the pics are only a prototype. It is not guaranteed to look anything like the photo's, and may be 2 years until production..

Side track..... I used to love that game. What was it called? I had it on a Leading Edge IBM clone as a kid.

The truck is ugly. More of an SUV than a pickup for sure. I love the concept of electric vehicles. As trucks go, needing to haul long distance and get work done, we’re a ways away I think. For the average person who doesn’t haul an RV or use it for work purposes, I could see this truck having some appeal.

2 motors will tow 10,000 lbs......Sounds better than a lot of P/U trucks and at $ 40,000 cheaper than a truck and a lot better looking...

I'm one to always welcome progress/change. I look forward to having all of the advantages of an electric truck. I love my diesel but I do believe that an electric truck will have clear and obvious advantages in the (pretty near) future.

If it looks anything like this prototype then forget everything that I just wrote!
