    No, not big enough. Maybe when they come out with a full sized truck, longer battery life and quick charge stations. U til then, my old 1 ton gasser does the job nicely.

    Atlis XT electric truck promises 20,000-pound towing and a 15-minute charge
    • [​IMG]
    Electric pickup trucks are definitely on their way and EV startup Atlis is showing its XT pickup truck in these renderings. The Atlis truck claims some interesting specs and features, with a clear intent of providing some real-world solutions when (or if) it hits the market within the next few years.

    The full-size XT truck, built on the Atlis XP electric skateboard platform, features four wheel-mounted motors. The structure allows for a large front trunk to complement the bed, which itself is said to be available in 6.5- and 8-foot lengths. Comparable "frunks" are usually more tub-like, but the one on the Atlis truck uniquely has both a hood and a lowering gate, as the fascia drops down like a tailgate does. There's load-adjusting air suspension, and both single and dual rear-wheel body styles are being planned.

    As for performance, capability and electric range, Atlis promises multiple options. Top speed is claimed to be 120 mph, with 60 mph coming in just 5 seconds when unladen and 18 seconds with maximum GCWR. Towing capacity is promised to be substantial, though it will depend on the version selected, with 5,000-, 10,000-, 15,000- and 20,000-pound versions available. The availability of a fifth-wheel hookup promises a GCWR tow rating of as much as 35,000 pounds. That means an Atlis truck's capability would range from something like a Chevrolet Colorado to a Silverado HD. In terms of off-road capability, ground clearance will be either 12 or 15 inches depending on spec. Wading depth is said to be 1 meter.

    In terms of range, there will be 300-, 400-, and 500-mile range options, all of which apply when the truck is unladen. But the biggest trick is a targeted 15-minute full charge, which Atlis says it has so far tested with small-scale batteries. A 3-kWh test battery pack was charged full in 13 minutes, but time will literally tell if that is scalable to a full vehicle size battery. Atlis also claims it's aiming for a 5-minute full fast charge by 2025. The full capacity of the final battery packs remains unstated.

    Better, but I need a full 8' bed and nothing but a 2 seat cab. Ford, Dodge, Chevy, someone will make one eventually.

    Solid idea but I haul everything from gravel to mulch to sand along with sheets of plywood, boards, trim, trash for 200 homes in the back of the pick up. Those extensions would only get me so far. Yea, this messed me up 3-4 years ago when Ford came out with the new Aluminum pick up trucks. They only made the long bed in the 150 for less than a month. The time I decided to look for a new truck those long beds were all gone, think the only one around was a King Ranch edition 1/2 the country away in Chicago and nothing personal, but I wasn't buying my guys a "king ranch" edition to pick up trash with. Ended up with a Dodge, that I owned for 2 years, couldn't stand it, traded it last year for a Ford F-150. Ended up walking out with 2 vehicles as I bought a Focus RS while I was in there as well.

    It is a blast... For me, it is the perfect mix of horse power 340 ish, 6 speed shifting and handling.

    Where do we get all this 'lectricity from if everything goes electric?

    Generating 'lectricity costs energy. Coal. Nuke. Hydro. Every step to your vehicle loses energy. Ineffcient.

    Solar. Infancy.

    Not sure it's the answer.

    I occasionally "duel" with one of those on my AM commute every couple of weeks. Always fun since very few other vehicles on the road. And it's dark so you can see headlights coming.

    Already looks like a Ford
    I'm sure it's the platform Ford is interested in
