Triton Model H is a New Electric Full-Size SUV

Yet another startup is trying its luck at producing a luxury EV.


  • The Triton Model H boasts four in-hub electric motors for a combined 1,500 horsepower.
  • A 200-kWh battery pack is said to provide a driving range of 700 miles or 1,120 km.
  • No on-sale date or price yet.

A technology company based in New Jersey called Triton Solar has decided to try its luck in the automotive business, and its very first vehicle is the Triton Model H, a full-size, all-electric utility vehicle.

Production Lucid Air World Debut Set for April

It’s only a design sketch for now, but interested customers can already pre-order the Model H, and the first 100 to do so—which are already confirmed, according to the company’s website—will receive a Founder’s Edition model that will include extra content. The truck will be built in New Jersey.

The Triton Model H’s exterior design is square, yet resolutely modern. Actually, it looks awfully similar to 2021 Cadillac Escalade ESV. The SUV is said to sit up to eight passengers and offer plenty of room for luggage—up to 200 cubic feet (5,663 litres). It rides on a 130-inch (3,302-millimetre) wheelbase, with an overall length of 224 inches (5,690 mm), along with a width of 81 inches (2,057 mm) and a roof height of 74 inches (1,880 mm). Curb weight is rated at 5,300 pounds (2,404 kg), which sounds optimistic for such a big SUV lugging a huge battery pack.

As a matter of fact, the Triton Model H is said to boast a 200-kWh battery—developed in-house by Triton Solar—which should provide a driving range of up to 700 miles (1,120 kilometres). The SUV relies on four in-hub electric motors for motivation, producing a combined output of 1,500 horsepower. Triton Solar expects its EV to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.9 seconds, in addition to boast a towing capacity of up to 15,400 pounds (6,985 kg).

Announced features include an air suspension that lowers the vehicle at higher speeds to improve aerodynamics, flush-mounted door handles that deploy when the proximity key is detected, auto retractable running boards and a panoramic sunroof. The vehicle’s cockpit will also include what seems to be a slick, curved central touchscreen panel to control climate and audio settings.

Last but not least, the Triton Model H’s warranty will be valid for 10 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. No on-sale date or pricing have been announced yet.
