Sensors surround the body combined with electronic rearview mirrors and a display screen to integrate the instrument panel.
“The overall experience suits all types of drivers, whether their journey takes them through urban neighborhoods or the rugged outdoors,” the company said in their official release.
On the payload side, the Model V can carry 1 ton and has a towing capacity of 3 tons. It is the first electric pickup designed and developed in Taiwan
The pickup will be manufactured at the Lordstown, Ohio factory and is expected to go into production in late 2023.
