The headline may sound somewhat unbelievable, but it is actually true. The USA, known for its huge pickups, has managed to develop a small pickup truck. It’s called the Telo Truck, it’s electric-powered, and even though it’s as small as a Mini, it’s said to be as practical as a Toyota Tacoma.
This is the company’s first vehicle, and it is claimed to have 507 horsepower, four-wheel drive, a 106 kWh battery pack, and a range of 350 miles. It can accommodate five people, but additional seats can be added on the truck bed, with the option to have a roof over them if desired.
One of the co-founders of the company is Forrest North, who has been involved in the development of the first Tesla Roadster and founded Mission Motors, one of the pioneers in electric motorcycles.
The exact manufacturing start date for the Telo Truck is unclear, but reservations can be made for a unit now. The starting price is said to be $49,999.
