SNEAK PEEK OF OUR PRODUCTION INTENT DESIGN
We raised the beltline or “shoulder” of the truck to allow for more packaging space for the components under the frunk, but also to raise the overall occupant head clearance.
This visually impacted the exterior design in a positive way, by keeping a majority of the visual weight below that beltline (the chamfer that runs the length of the body side, just below the hood), it creates a more stable and sturdy appearance.
The major change that drove our exterior design adjustments came from our breakthrough in thermal management. We were able to reduce our overall radiator size and utilize one slim cooling unit behind the bumper where it would receive better airflow.
The dual, top mounted radiators were no longer required, which allowed us to widen the frunk significantly. We moved the headlights outboard, creating a similar mounting strategy as the rear lights, allowing further symmetry in our design.
The bed is now independent of the cab, making commercial chassis cab applications, repair or replacement easier. The B-pillar (behind the front seats) was moved forward for better ingress and egress for the rear occupant.
It then made the sliding glass window cassettes less effective, so we opted to go with the time-proven technology of manual crank windows. This system is much lighter and just as robust as our sliding glass design.
The windshield, side glass, and rear glass all grew taller to accommodate for more head clearance and to help with overall exterior proportions.
With the taller beltline, it was necessary to vertically grow the “greenhouse” (as it’s called in automotive design) to provide better visibility, driver experience and aesthetics.
THE WORLD'S MOST CAPABLE PICKUP TRUCK
The B2 electric pickup truck is the big brother of the B1. Twin DNA. Same everything inside and out, except the long bed mullet haircut. A completely badass electric truck capable of carrying 16-foot cargo through a patented full-length pass-through. With the rear seats out, you can transport a hefty stack of 4×8’s with the tailgate closed. We’ve basically copy and pasted all the B1 research and development, added a pickup truck bed, a super convenient fold-away cab wall and 20 inches to the wheelbase. As far as pickup trucks go, this might well be the last truck you’ll ever buy.
