Is This For Real? Electric Triton Model H with 1,500 HP, 700 Mile Range, and 15,000 Lbs of Towing?

Is this an electric copycat of a Cadillac Escalade?

What you see here is a concept for a Triton Model H electric SUV. It is reportedly a product of the Triton Solar company that is based in New Jersey. It appears to be using a GM full-size SUV chassis and body structure with its own style, running gear, and technology.

The front looks a lot like the upcoming 2021 Cadillac Escalade ESV long wheelbase.

The pdf marketing brochure that Triton released states a few specifications. The SUV is said to have four electric motors (one per wheel) with a combined output of 1,500 hp. The 0-60 MPH acceleration is listed at 2.9 seconds (similar to the acceleration stated by Rivian R1T and Tesla Cybertruck).

The SUV is stated to draw energy from a 200 kWh battery pack and have a maximum 700 mile driving range. It is also listed to have a maximum towing capacity of up to 15,400 lbs.

There are also reports of the Triton company taking $5,000 pre-order deposits with a $135,000 required payment within five days of the pre-order.

I searched the Triton Solar website and could not find any reference to the new Model H SUV. All current information about the Model H are based on news reports from various news outlets or newspaper websites.

While having a large all-electric SUV with upward of 1,500 horsepower and a 200 kWh battery is relatively realistic. Getting 700 miles of driving range when unladen or safely towing 15,400 lbs any meaningful distance is questionable.

I would give the company and the vehicle a very careful look because thinking giving the company a very large amount of money.

General Motors has been developing their electric truck and car platform for years. They developed a new battery chemistry (not Lithium-Ion) that they say will be scalable to produce and offer best possible power, performance, and recharge ability. GM is not claiming a driving range over 400 miles for their largest electric vehicle with the largest battery capacity, similar to the GMC Hummer EV.

We should learn more about the electric Hummer SUV and pickup truck on May 20, 2020 (unless there is another delay due to the virus shutdowns).
