Looks like a 4x4 DeLorean. I think I actually made this when I was in boy scouts for my first derby, I should claim copyright infringement.

If you told a kid in 1980 something to draw a "future" truck, I think this is what you would get.

I love it. Iím thinking of putting my hundo down on one. Thing is badass performance wise, I dig the straight lines, piss on all this new aerodynamic crap
I think I drew something like this too as a kid which makes it cool in my book.

My favorite comment I've read so far is that it looks like they stole the design from a pinewood derby car.

I’m missing the “truck” part.
I mean, can you haul something other than batteries or tow something like a generator?

There is a bed and apparently a trailer hitch? There are pictures of it with a trailer

The cover over the bed slides up to reveal the bed.

It has 7000-14000 lb towing capacity depending if you get the single, dual or tri-motor setup with 250-500 miles of range respectively.

There is no way that thing can pass crash standards as is.

Looks like $hit in my opinion.

But then again with all the straight blocky edges it’d be easy to patch the body back together when Michigan road salt destroys it in 6 years. Hell You could patch it back together with left over panels off a Maytag!

Might not need to patch it. Iirc, I heard it was stainless.
