    Seriously, what the fuck is it with electric car manufacturers and wild, untested claims? That pretty much says we dont have a prototype running around, so we are planning on you guys to fund the idea so we can build one.

    Its a shame because i actually like the look of it.

    I agree with everything about except the styling. It's even ugly by dual cab standards.
    Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    That interior looks like a digital version of a malaise era pick-up interior.

    Amazingly they apparently own a production plant and tooling so this might really happen!

    I reckon they look awesome and if they perform anywhere near the specs and are reasonably priced they'd sell a fuckload.

    It’s Tesla logic, sell a premium priced product to people with the money to buy them who are prepared to pay for the relative exclusivity.

    They're talking about starting at 65K including the 7.5K Tax Rebate, an Escalade is starting 75K which looks to be around the same spec level. So not particularly expensive to me.
