Tesla showed the world what its first electric pickup will look like with the Cybertruck. That happened in November 2019 and it seemed to show the way to many companies so that, from that moment, they would dare with designs, at least surprising. And it is the case of Canoo, a North American company that has decided to show its commitment to this segment of electric vans that can be used for daily work and those excursions, trips and leisure moments that we enjoy in the countryside.
Of course, although daring, the design of this Canoo is reminiscent of old concepts from the 70s, which highlights that rounded front and reminiscent of the VW Kombi. Be that as it may, the company will open throughout this year a reservation campaign that will last throughout 2022 so that, for another burning year, begin to bring the first units to their owners.
Transformable and with a lot of power
This pickup that claims to be “All American”, It will have a 600CV engine and a total load capacity of about 820 kg. It rises above the ground to a height of 1.93 meters. A bit more than Tesla’s own Cybertruck will offer, but lower than the future electric Hummer. Of course, in terms of autonomy, the manufacturer ensures that it will reach 321 kilometers. An amount that does not seem too high.
Its design, as you can see, is quite original and we can circulate with it in pickup format, to load in the rear area what we want, or closed, where it acquires a whole catalog of more than interesting accessories. It is the case of the camping configuration, which adds an extendable module to the back as if it were a small tent campaign that will allow us to stand indoors.
Another element that attracts attention is the installation of LED lights around the perimeter of the cargo area, in such a way that the car can be used easily even in poor visibility conditions. In addition, it has side compartments (four) that we can use in camping mode to place objects, and it will have an installation to connect a generator that will power the improvised caravan, which includes a whole set of plugs to connect electrical appliances, chargers. mobiles, etc. For now the manufacturer has not announced what its price will be or the number of variants that we can purchase.
