Electric Pickup trucks are about to come to market. According to Reuters, there are eight battery-powered pickups that will be up for grabs come 2021, with Atlis, Bollinger, Ford, GM, Hercules, Rivian, Tesla, and Lordstown/Workhorse each offering their own take. Now you can add Neuron EV to that mix. The California-headquartered EV company just unveiled two of its prototypes at the China International Import Expo in Shanghai.
Neuron showed off their T.One pickup and the TORQ semi. According to Neuron, the trucks are a part of their vision to provide “practical and desirable electric utility vehicles…that offer more value” to the market. Over the next five years, Neuron plans to “continuously build upon the depth of our authenticity as we fulfill major needs in the electric vehicle market.” How they’re fulfilling those needs is a bit unknown as they haven’t shared much specifics on the vehicles. What is known, however, is that the trucks are built on a skateboard chassis and is powered by a “multi-source propulsion system draws power from an all-electric traction battery pack, replaceable reserve power, and removable solar panel truck bed cover.” No word of specs, but Neuron did state, “For us, vehicle performance is determined by usability. Why are vehicles engineered to go faster than the speed limit if our goal as a society is to reduce car accidents? Neuron’s product quality is measured by ease of comfort, reliability, safety, and sustainability.”
As for design, the T.One has a futuristic design for the front of the truck, but you’ll recognize the rest as being pure pickup. Neuron’s concept is set up as a three-passenger truck, and on their web site, you can see the T.One with a standard pickup truck bed, a goose-neck flatbed, a dump truck, or with the topper. It can also be configured as an SUV. Looks lie Neuron EV will stack up well against its competition in the Electric Pickup Category—at least from what we’ve been told so far.
