Wow, now I'd just have to haul a solar array with me for the back- country :D
A meter of water no problem from the factory!

Tesla better buy them out...

No differentials, No oil pan, no transmission = more ground clearance

The SUV is BAD booty looking! I'd love to get one of these but I'm assuming they are going to be in the same price range as a Tesla model X (only way cooler looking). The pickup is in my opinion not a real pickup unless it has AT LEAST a 6 ft. bed Preferably 8. I like the ground clearance though. Need to start saving up my money!

Problem with this company is no one has ever heard of them. No warranty information. No test reports from third party companies like Consumer Reports or Road and Track.

Anyone who thinks that the electric vehicle industry is a dead end market is an uneducated hillbilly who has sex with the farm animals! :goink:

Wait until gas and diesel hit's $10-15 a gallon in a couple decades.

Great idea! One that, at the press of a button expands out like the panels on the international space station! Sweet!

This is precisely the same problem that Hyundai faced 33 years ago. They got past the problem with a combination of market timing and market targeting. Also standing behind their product. The ratings they did get from the common sources were far from glowing, but well before their first offerings' 10 year warranty had expired, they had a significant portion of market share, and have remained a contender in the mix ever since, so it can be done.
