The pickup truck is the best-selling vehicle platform in America, but no electronic option was available… until now. The W-15 can go the first 80 miles on just electricity, but there is a gasoline generator that can keep charging the battery continuously to add an additional 310 miles of range. This truck can go 0-60 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds due to its 480 horsepower. This truck is based off the Chevrolet Silverado, but of course this is just the design of the truck.

Features of Truck.

Truck has a few drivers aids such as emergency braking, and lane departure. Sadly, this truck does not have blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control yet.There is a 7.2-kilowatt power exporter that can power tools without the truck running. Payload is decent at 2,200 pounds and the W-15 can tow 5,000 pounds. This truck has many more features that is not mentioned.
