We can’t overstate how much the development of electric technologies is changing the automotive game. It seems like a new mind-blowing vehicle emerges and redefines our expectations every couple of weeks. Today, that vehicle is the Atlis XT all-electric pickup truck. And trust us when we say it’s a real game-changer.
Slated to come in a number of different trims, it’s the highest-end option that’s gotten us super excited. You see, Atlis is promising that the XT will be able to drive up to 500 miles on a single charge, which is unheard of in and of itself. On top of that, the powertrain will allow it to travel from 0-60 in just five seconds — that’s sports car-level acceleration. Furthermore, they’re saying it will tow a whopping 20,000 pounds (and up to 35,000 with a fifth-wheel hookup), which is pretty amazing. The most astounding figure, however, is how long it takes to juice. According to Atlis, the XT will charge fully in just 15 minutes! Of course, it still remains to be seen if they can actually deliver this American-made, all-wheel-drive, game-changing pickup, but we certainly have high hopes. Pricing starts at $45,000.
