Canoo Inc, formerly known as Evelozcity, has built a reputation for producing some of the most unique electric vehicles, and its latest creation is no different. The EV automaker recently unveiled an all-new electric pickup truck during the Motor Press Guild’s Virtual Media Day (VMD), and it’s safe to say they did not disappoint.
Canoo’s pickup truck was built with several unique features to help customers do more with their vehicles.
Pull-out Bed Extension:
The pickup truck bed is around 1.8 metres long and can extend to a fully enclosed 2 metres, allowing big items such as a 4 by 8 ft sheet of plywood to easily fit inside. When the bed is extended, a second layer of tailgate doors can be swiveled out. The bed-extension also houses a secondary lamp, containing all tail lamp functions, so the truck can be driven while the bed space is maximized.
Fold Down Worktable + Cargo Storage:
For those looking to get some worfd done while exploring the outdoors, the pickup features a front cargo storage area that can hold tools or gear. It also includes a fold down worktable with electrical outlets. The workstation table is extendable to allow customers to have maximized work surface on the go, in addition to providing an area to put on gear before heading out exploring.
Side Step + Storage:
On the side of the vehicle, there is a hidden step to allow quick and easy access to the truck bed. Underneath the step is a flexible storage area for items including a first-aid kit, cooler for snacks and drinks, lockable laptop storage and more.
Multi-Accessory Charge Port:
The pickup truck can double as a powerplant with exportable power accessible on all sides of the vehicle. Power can last all day for tools and devices, with as little as 10% impact on vehicle range.
The pickup truck has been designed to accommodate a variety of camper shells to fit as many use cases as possible.
In terms of the Canoo pickup truck specifications, the EV will ship in both Dual or rear motor configurations. The dual motor configuration pushes out 447 Kilowatts and features a maximum payload capacity of 816 Kilograms. The vehicles can also travel around 321 kilometres on a single charge.
“Our pickup truck is as strong as the toughest trucks out there and is designed to be exponentially more productive. This truck works for you,” said Tony Aquila, Executive Chairman, Canoo.
An exact date as to when the vehicle will be made available to the public has yet to be announced. Although based on the positive response the vehicle has gotten from the automotive world, it’s safe to say Canoo will want to release the vehicle as soon as possible.
