The Atlis XT is a prototype of a large electric pickup that aspires to compete with traditional HD trucks
It will be fully adaptable to custom designed service bodies and flat beds
It will have 300, 400, or 500 miles (480, 644 or 805 kilometers) of range, depending on the version
The Atlis XT is still in the prototype phase, but many details are known about this upcoming truck which will be available in many factory configurations, in addition to being adaptable to service bodies and flatbeds.
The styling of the Atlis XT reflects this heavy duty, rugged nature with its total absence of curves and the sheer size of every detail, from the massive lights to the huge gaps between the wheels and the fenders.
The XT will be built on the company’s XP platform that it intends to sell to other companies as a plug and play “skateboard” platform to use in their vehicles, such as motorhomes or dump trucks.
According to the automaker, the truck would have over 600 horsepower and 12,000 lb-ft of torque, which would give it a maximum tow rating of 17,000lbs with a hitch and 35,000 lbs with a gooseneck attachment, both on par with current HD trucks.
The battery used in the Atlis XT is a 250 kWh unit capable of charging at up to 1.5 MW with its on-board charger, which can make charging time as low as 15 minutes from empty to full. Range will vary depending on the version of the truck, but it will vary between 300 and 500 miles (480 and 805 kilometers).
Conveniences will include multiple power outlets (including 120V and 240V) in the cabin, in the bed and in the biggest “Frunk” of any electric pickup. Additionally, compressed air hookups will be provided at the front and at the rear of the vehicle in order to inflate tires or power tools.
The Atlis XT will also be off-road capable with 12 inches of ground clearance provided by a height adjustable air suspension and four-wheel drive by the means of an electric motor in each wheel.
Price will range from $45,000 to $78,000 in the United States and as is becoming common, Atlis will offer a subscription service which will provide customers with insurance, registration, maintenance, inspections, free charging and a new truck every 3, 5 or 7 years for a single payment every month, beginning at $700 USD.
The Arizona based company hopes to begin production of this truck in 2022.
