Canoo Electric Pickup Truck

The Canoo Electric Pickup has unveiled its electric workhorse.

A futuristic take on the cab forward configuration, the new pickup echoes the design of the company already revealed minivan and delivery vehicle. It rides on the same in house platform and is chock full of features. A configurable bed with a pull out extension increasing length from six to eight feet. The taillights are no longer visible from behind after opening the tailgate doors. Canoo has mounted a thin vertical strip of lights within the edges of the doors.

The bed modularity goes beyond its extended length, as there is a cargo divider system to secure various items while the sides of the bed have flip down tables serving as workbenches. An additional neat little feature is a side step making it easier to load or unload items in the cargo bed. Right below the built in step is a cargo area large enough to accommodate a small cooler, first aid kit, laptop, and other items.

The Canoo electric pickup has a nifty fold down worktable with extendable sides to hold various tools you might need on a work site. Should you need more cargo capacity, a roof rack will be available and even a camper shell with a roof mounted tent. Several easily accessible power outlets to charge devices have been installed, while the third brake light doubles as an overhead light to supplement the LED surrounding the bed.

The technical specifications, Canoo says the electric truck has been engineered with single and dual-motor configurations. The latter comes along with all-wheel drive, up to 600 horsepower and 746 Newton-meters of torque. It is battery will have enough juice for more than 322 kilometers of range, but probably not while carrying the maximum payload capacity of 816 kilograms. The Canoo truck sits on 18-inch wheels with 265/60/R18 tires.

It all sounds rather promising, but the first customer deliveries will not take place before 2023. You will be able to pre order one from the second quarter of this year at a yet undisclosed price.
