Canoo, a company specialized in developing electric vehicles (EVs), just launched its fully-electric pickup truck.
The production version of the pickup truck will open for preorders in Q2 2021, with deliveries beginning as early as 2023.
Pull-out Bed Extension:
The pickup truck bed is six feet long and can extend to a fully enclosed eight feet, allowing big items such as a 4 by 8 ft sheet of plywood to easily fit inside.
The pull-handle bed extension also helps with loading and unloading the truck. The extension also serves as a license plate holder. When the bed is extended, the second layer of tailgate doors can be swivelled out.
The bed-extension also houses a secondary lamp, containing all tail lamp functions, so the truck can be driven while the bed space is maximized.
Fold-Down Worktable + Cargo Storage:
The pickup features a front cargo storage area that can hold tools or gear, also includes a fold-down worktable with electrical outlets.
The workstation table is extendable to allow customers to have maximized work surface on the go, in addition to providing an area to put on gear before heading out exploring.
Flip-Down Side Tables:
Both sides of the vehicle house a flip-down table in two expandable depths. Built into the side panel of the truck bed, the flip-down side table becomes a workbench with multi-functional power sources in close proximity.
Side Step + Storage:
On the side of the vehicle, there is a hidden step to allow quick and easy access to the truck bed. Underneath the step is a flexible storage area for items including a first-aid kit, cooler for snacks and drinks, lockable laptop storage and more.
Modular Bed with Space Dividers:
The truck bed is modular with the use of Canoo’s space divider system designed to keep items separate and secure. The bed wall also incorporates modular wheel chocks to secure bikes and configurable tie-downs for ladders, large equipment and other materials.
Multi-Accessory Charge Port:
The pickup truck can double as a powerplant with exportable power accessible on all sides of the vehicle. Power can last all day for tools and devices, with as little as 10% impact on vehicle range.
Integrated Overhead + Bed Perimeter Lighting:
The third brake light doubles as an overhead light to see inside the cargo bed at night. The vehicle is also equipped with perimeter lighting on all sides of the bed wall for added visibility.
The pickup truck has optional roof racks in variable sizes for added cargo storage. The roof rack is easily accessible from the flatbed or via the sidestep.
The pickup truck has been designed to accommodate a variety of camper shells to fit as many use cases as possible.
The pickup truck is the third vehicle that will be based on the company’s proprietary multi-purpose platform architecture, enabling the accelerated development timeline.
Canoo’s EV platform functionally integrates all the critical components of an electric powertrain.
