Canoo’s new fully-electric pickup can haul 1800lbs for over 200 miles

The haul nine yards

Canoo’s fully-electric pick-up feels like the antithesis of Tesla’s unashamedly angular Cybertruck. The jagged, low-poly chassis favoured by Tesla has been snubbed in favour of yawning curves and rounded corners that hark towards a friendlier future. The company says the EV is designed to be “exponentially more productive” than its rivals, but is still capable of going toe-to-toe with “the toughest trucks out there.” Practically speaking, the pick-up features a huge amount of storage, including a 6ft long modular truck bed that can be extended to a fully enclosed 8ft, a front cargo storage area for holding tools and gear (complete with electrical outlets), and flip-down side tables built into either side of the truck. All of that translates to a payload capacity of 1800lbs, but you needn’t worry about weighing the plucky pick-up down. Prospective buyers will be able to choose between dual or rear motor configurations, the former of which offers up to 600hp and 550lb-ft of torque. Throw a battery with a range of over 200 miles into the mix, and you’ve got a pick-up that should be capable of hauling just about whatever you can throw at it. Lumberjack shirt and mullet optional.

I’m a freelance games and technology journalist currently mashing my keyboard in the name of fine institutions like Stuff, where you'll usually find me waxing lyrical about the latest mobile morsels. I've also been known to cook up some decidedly delicious reviews from time to time, and was once dubbed 'the games industry's answer to Nigella Lawson' by someone probably somewhere.
