All done. Presentation was a bit stiff and awkwward

Weird styling, but awesome specs.

I expecting F150 size, but it is quite a lot shorter than a ford ranger.

 

3500lb (1587.573) payload mentioned, way more than the ranger, hilux etc, which will likely take it beyond a 3500kg GVM in NZ (if they sell that config here), meaning a 90km/h speed limit.

 

Base price of USD 39,990 seems unworkable low. Will sell like hot cakes if they can keep that price point.

 

 

 

[edit, that base price is for RWD, 400km+ EPA rated range, 6.5s 0-60mph, 3400kg tow rating, active air suspension allowing up to 400mm of ground clearance. A motorized rear tray roller cover (also appears standard, so no need to budget $1000+ for some kind or tray cover to keep your stuff dry and secure.]

I'd buy one just because.... But I have zero need for a vehicle like that.

But for people who do.... They might consider it.

It felt not ready.

Certainly a statement piece. Wonโ€™t be mistaking the make when you drive past one.

Starting price is the same as the Model 3 SR+, so should be about $75k NZD landed here.

It looks more like a modern house than a car.  It is like the designers started the design but gave up. Ugliest boxy truck in teh word. I thought initially it was a joke, and that the real vehicle was under the panels.

75k would put it in the range of the high end Volkswagen’s with many more features.

Strongly disagree.  ๐Ÿ™ƒ

 

I love it - it's a thing of quite stunning beauty.

 

A brilliant example of in-your-face, take-it-or-leave-it, totally original design.

 

The only "ugly" part is the price tag.

 

When i win Lotto I'll buy a fleet of them.   ๐Ÿ™‚

I want one, very very tempted to put a deposit down.

Reasons why I need one? It looks cool, Iโ€™ll make up more reasons later on.

It certainly isn't seek or elegant. It will also be intimidating on the road. It looks like one of those old 80's concent cars that they used in Back to the future 2, which today look kind of dated.

Is this for real? Is that its actual name? Is this a concept design? Am I in the real world?
