Tesla may reveal their own all-electric pickup some time this year, but the Atlis XT aims to give it some competition. Based on Atlis Automotive’s XP platform, this full-sized pickup has a 5,000 to 20,000 pounds towing capacity based on the battery capacity selected, with up to 35,000 pounds available in the form of a fifth wheel gooseneck trailer — all square in full-size ICE range. It’s claimed to have a 300 to 500 mile range depending on the model, with a 0-60 time of five seconds, while topping out at of 120 MPH. Read more for additional pictures and information.
This all-electric pickup truck uses side cameras rather than traditional mirrors and can eventually be equipped with a Level 5 autonomous driving system. The interior features a large central touchscreen with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Just like Tesla, Atlis plans on implementing their own high-speed charging network throughout the United States capable of providing a near full charge in just 15 minutes.
“Pricing will start at $45,000 and Atlis says it will offer the option of a subscription plan starting at $700 per month for the pickup, maintenance, insurance, and free charging. The XT will be manufactured in the United States and should hit the market in 2020,” reports Car Scoops.
