Canoo is an electric automaker start-up with a reputation for producing cars with a unique aesthetic. It certainly lived up to that reputation with the unveiling of its new electric pickup truck on Thursday.
The new pickup, which will begin preorders in the second quarter of 2021 before hitting the market in 2023, features a flat front with an almost bubble-like windshield.
Canoo said in a statement that the company designed the vehicle “to be the most cab-forward and space efficient on the market, with massive cargo capacity on the smallest footprint possible.”
The flat front design, which is similar to a van, basically puts the driver almost on top of the truck’s front wheels, allowing for more storage space in the cab and the rear cargo bed. The electric pickup also features a front cargo storage area that, Canoo says, “can hold tools or gear, also includes a fold down worktable with electrical outlets.
