Canoo Shows Off Electric Truck Set for 2023 On-Sale

Another electric truck emerges

  • Flat-chassis truck will offer new levels of flexibility

  • 320 km range, expected 1,800 lb payload


Electric startup Canoo has just revealed a new electric pickup to join its van-like crossover and delivery vehicles. Based on the same multi-purpose platform, the company expects to bring the pod-like pickup to market in 2023.

Canoo is showing the electric truck with a range of accessories including a camper shell with a VW-like pop-up roof and a bed topper that makes it look just like the Canoo crossover. The truck is expected to offer a maximum payload of 1,800 lbs and will be capable of towing, while dual or rear-only motors will be offered.

The twin motors deliver up to 600 hp and the battery is expected to offer a range of more than 320 km. The truck is loaded with features to make it more usable for the typical truck buyer, ranging from a series of home-style wall outlets in the bed to perimeter lighting for the box. A front-trunk offers cargo storage as well as a fold-out workbench (with outlets), the tailgate sides fold town into tables (or to hold wider cargo), and a step comes out of the side that lets you access the bed, but also contains another locking storage area made possible by the flat platform underneath.

Dividers for the box help secure small items while an extension to the tailgate will accommodate 4×8 sheets of plywood.

The cab-forward truck is designed to fit maximum space onto a small footprint, with steer by wire and a lack of engine helping those efforts. Canoo says they’ll release more specs for the truck closer to production, and they are expecting to open pre-orders this quarter while starting deliveries from a US factory beginning in 2023.
