EV startup EdisonFuture recently showcased the EF1-T pickup and EF1-V commercial van at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show. The startup, which is part of Chinese renewable energy company SPI, hopes to launch the electric truck by 2025.
According to Carbuzz, the first wave of electric trucks will enter the US auto market in the near future, while major competitors such as the Tesla Cybertruck, Ford F-150 Lighting, and Hummer EV Pickup have yet to launch.
Now, mid-sized automotive manufacturers such as Rivian with its R1T Truck are also trying to tap into the electric car market. Now, the EdisonFuture EV is also starting to make its way into the electric car market with the introduction of the EF1-T pickup and EF1-V commercial van.
While exhibiting at the 2021 Loas Angeles Auto Show, the EF1-T and the EF1-V commercial van have made quite an impression with their sleek design and impressive performance.
Judging by the design of the EF1-T pickup, this electric truck is about 243 inches long, making it much longer than the Tesla Cybertruck. The exterior features a set of hardcore off-road tires, flush door handles, a clean front-end with slim LED headlights and a slanted windshield that looks like something from a Power Rangers episode. For added practicality, a pair of folding steps is also included.
This electric truck uses a standard 120-kWh battery that powers a single motor to produce 440 horsepower. This gives the EF1-T pickup a 300-mile range, and a towing capacity of 7,500 lbs. Acceleration is also quite high, sprint zero to sixty kilometers only takes 6.5 seconds.
In addition to the standard model, the EV EdisonFuture will also launch two different trims, namely Premium and Super. The Premium model will be powered by a 150-kWh battery and add another motor for a total power output of 690 hp. It also gets an extended range of 380 miles, a towing capacity of 9,000 lbs, and a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds.
The Super model will sport a 180-kWh battery, three motors with a total power output of 816 hp, a range of 450 miles, and a towing capacity of 11,000 pounds. The 0-60 mph sprint drops to 3.9 seconds.
All three models will have a payload capacity of 3,000 pounds. EdisonFuture says its trucks can be equipped with solar and photovoltaic panels that cover the roof, as well as bed covers for an additional 25 to 35 miles of mileage.
