“Canoo’s New Pickup Is All Electric, All American – Ready For Work & The Weekend.”
Looks like the Tesla Cyber Truck has some fresh competition in the electric pickup market. Meet the Canoo Pickup Truck. It’s a purpose built EV with a decidedly opposite aesthetic of the severely angular Cyber Truck. The bubble style cab forward design offers maximum driver visibility and the flatbed is tricked out with all kinds of conveniences you won’t find in a standard pickup. Best part, camper shells were very much in mind during development. Read the info, watch the video, and if interested in purchasing preorders open Q2 2021 with delivery as early as 2023. Wouldn’t mind throwing the skis in the back of this futuristic whip. MORE INFO HERE.
“Own the open road with over 200 miles of range and instant acceleration with 550 ft lbs of torque. Take what you need with you with 1,800 lbs of payload capacity and a 6 ft utility truck bed, packaging a folding side table, pegboard bed flooring, onboard outlets and more into every corner and surface — complete with an additional 2ft pull out extension for a little extra room when you need it.
Our purpose-built pickup truck is designed to be the most cab-forward and space-efficient vehicle available, resulting in an open cabin with a commanding view of the road and seating for up to four. An exercise in function and form, the Canoo Truck makes use of every millimeter of space for all the utility you need for work and the weekend.”
All Electric. All American. All Utility.
The pickup truck has been designed to accommodate a variety of camper shells to fit as many use cases as possible.
Pull-out Bed Extension:
The pickup truck bed is six feet long and can extend to a fully enclosed eight feet, allowing big items such as a 4 by 8 ft sheet of plywood to easily fit inside. The pull-handle bed extension also helps with loading and unloading the truck. The extension also serves as a license plate holder. 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:
To offer the greatest customer utility, the pickup features a front cargo storage area that can hold tools or gear, 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.
Flip-Down Side Tables:
Both sides of the vehicle house a flip down table in two expandable depths. Built into the side panel of the truck bed, the flip-down side table becomes a workbench with multi-functional power sources in close proximity.
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. This space efficient feature is only possible due to Canoo’s ultra-flat platform.
Modular Bed with Space Dividers:
The truck bed is modular with the use of Canoo’s space divider system designed to keep items separate and secure. The bed wall also incorporates modular wheel chocks to secure bikes and configurable tie downs for ladders, large equipment and other materials.
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.
Integrated Overhead + Bed Perimeter Lighting:
The third brake light doubles as an overhead light to see inside the cargo bed at night. The vehicle is also equipped with perimeter lighting on all sides of the bed wall for added visibility.
The pickup truck has optional roof racks in variable sizes for added cargo storage. The roof rack is easily accessible from the flatbed or via the sidestep.
