French-Japanese carmaker unveils a cute-looking electric truck
Valeo, a France-based company co-established with the Gunma University of Japan (CRANTS subdivision), has designed an electric car marketed as middle ground between a pickup truck and a van.
The truck comes based on the Valeo’s proprietary platform called 48V and packs eDrive motors on both axles, rated at 20 hp (15 kW) each. This makes for an electric AWD system and enables the car to fulfil its primary declared function: cargo hauling inside factories and enterprises. The power may not sound like much, but the company claims it is adequate for the purpose.
The driving range is 100 kilometers (62 miles), and the top going speed is capped at 100 km/h (62 mph).
