Yeah except who the hell wants a $100,000+ pickup truck with one seat? People either buy pickups for work or as family vehicles. The artist rendering makes it wholly impractical, electric or not. That looks like nothing more than a toy for city slickers to drive around.

There are people out there for sure that would buy that, but those that won't, are your typical truck owners, they'll want to stay gas/diesel as long as anybody. But there are people out there certainly.

Although I have had, and still continue to have, toy vehicles for fun and sunny weekends, I have had a truck as a daily driver for the entirety of my driving life. However, I am not adverse to an electric truck provided it offers the same utility as my current gas powered truck. It needs to be able to haul rock, hay, wood, camping gear, a trailer, a boat, and a bunch of other stuff I use a truck for. If an electric truck can do all that and still give me the 400ish mile range that my current gas powered truck can, I would consider it seriously.

Also, charge time needs to not be a pain in the ass. I've got a three prong, 220v, 50A outlet in the quonset hut so I would expect to plug the truck in when I got home and have it fully ready and available for the next day's usage.
