Farmers and fleet owners, gather around and take a look at the first all-electric light pickup truck you can buy this year. It’s called the Condor and it will arrive on market next month.
It might look like a shed-built weekend project, but the thing is real and the company that makes it, EV Fleet, claims it could build 15 units per day, summing up to 300 per month, each for the starting price of $50,000.
Don’t panic about the steep price, because it will benefit from incentives. The stock cab and chassis come fitted with an independent adjustable suspension, all-around disk brakes, insulated cabin and air conditioning.
Power is supplied by a 32 kWh or a 50 kWh battery pack. The neat thing is that you can manage the power use, by programming the 0-60 mph acceleration times for example, which can be achieved in 5 to 12 seconds. Same goes with the top speed, which can be set to a maximum of 85 mph (137 km/h).
