ATLIS Motor Vehicles is presenting a concept all-electric 4-wheel-drive pickup truck with some out-of-this-world claims. First, the ATLIS XT has a traditional pickup truck appearance and shape. It’s a four-door crew cab with a 6.5-foot bed. It’s riding on big wheel/tires, and the company says each wheel is powered by its own electric motor for “true four wheel drive” capability.

We reached out to the company for comment, but the specifications sheet does not talk about the type of the battery, the kWh capacity, or the battery charger throughput.  We also do not know the GVWR or the curb weight of this XT truck.  We will let you know as soon as we hear more details.

Claimed specs:

  • 0-60 MPH: 5 seconds
  • 0-60 MPH with maximum load: 18 seconds
  • top speed: 120 MPH

All of the details can be found on the ATLIS XT page.
