Yeah except who the hell wants a $100,000+ pickup truck with one seat?
I'm not 100% sure that is only one seat (one person). It looks lit the body widens towards the back of the cab. That said... it would be reminiscent of a 1930's cab, which barely can fit 2 people on a bench seat.
Several reasons I won't buy an EV any time soon:
1. Range (although it's getting better)
2. Time to charge
4. Uglyness (aka Prius... although that is a hybrid and I said EV)
5. Battery Materials... Extremely toxic, another limited resource, and no proper disposal.
I would have loved to seen the market go more towards Hydrogen Fuel Cells, but there are obvious issues with that as well.
Lithium ion batteries are less toxic than the lead acid batteries used in conventional engines. They're actually more landfill-safe. Once the recycling for these catches up to lead acid battery recycling (around 99% in the US), then they will definitely be the safer, cleaner option.
