Luckily for all the people in the confluence of this camping/electric vehicle Venn diagram, the market is now saturated. Read on to learn how startup EdisonFuture, which recently joined the
electric pickupscene, hopes to differentiate itself from the competition.
Specs of the new electric pickup
The EdisonFuture pickup, the EF1-T, is beautiful but not perhaps particularly surprising to EV pickup enthusiasts. It looks like a Ford F1 Lightning wearing a backward baseball cap, all smooth edges and no forehead.
The front of the truck sports skinny horizontal headlights, a lit up nouveau-Kia-esque “EF” logo, and a minimalist grille. The frame from top-to-toe looks strikingly long, but the actual dimensions of it are fairly similar to the F1, reports
While your gear enjoys a nice spacious truck bed, you can enjoy a nice spacious interior. The EF1-T sports a bench seat in the front that can host three passengers, plus an additional row or two depending on the version you pick. The cabin is painted a trendy burnt orange, and the console is livened up by a variety of infotainment options, including a touchscreen that shimmers on the driver’s dash.
As for the things that make a pickup a pickup, the EF1-T covers it. The standard tier of the truck can tow 7,500 pounds, and the other two options can tow 9,000 and 11,000 respectively.
Additionally, the EF1-T comes with various options for style and capability, from drive configurations to number of motors. With the three-motor version, for example, you could accelerate from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and experience 700 hp. There’s something for every pickup fan.
Set apart by solar
The EF1-T is a pretty cool truck, but nothing about its capabilities is terrifically different from any of the other current EV pickup offerings, with one big exception.
Hyundai Ioniq 5, EdisonFuture is placing its hopes in solar. The EF1-T has an optional cover that cloaks the car in solar cells, which can, according to MotorTrend, could increase mileage by between 15 and 25 miles on a sunny day.
And for those worried about the rear view being blocked by EdisonFuture’s armadillo armor, rest assured that camera mirrors pick up the slack. Plus, a closed cover makes the EF1-T into quite the aerodynamic shape, so you can reduce drag while the sun helps you amp up your mileage.
Don’t forget about the van
The EF1-T is accompanied also by the EF1-V, EdisonFuture’s take on a van. It looks a lot like the truck, except the cabin continues all the way to the bumper, and it, too, sports solar capabilities.
For anyone looking to cart around a lot of stuff in an efficient way, these two offerings look like they would more than do the job. They’re not actually out yet, so you’ll have to be satisfied with a reservation for now. Maybe test drive an F1 Lightning while you’re waiting?
