The only currently known configuration is a crew-cab model but there could be more options available when the truck arrives on the market at an undetermined date.

The styling of the truck shares a little something with the Tesla Cybertruck, especially in the back, where the bed is covered by a retractable panel.

Some technical details are known, such as the fact that three powertrains will be offered, depending on the version.

The Standard model will have one motor producing 470 horsepower, which should give the truck a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) acceleration time of 6.5 seconds.

The Premium model will be equipped with two motors generating an undisclosed power figure that will allow an acceleration time of 4.5 seconds from 0 to 60 mph.

The Super model will be at the top of the range with its three motors that will develop 816 horsepower, good for 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds.

The battery size or the range are still unknown, but the truck will feature solar panels on the roof and the bed cover that could allow vehicles to continually charge throughout the day.

The public reveal is expected for mid-November, during the Los Angeles auto show, and the company will begin taking orders immediately.
