Should A Pickup Truck Be In Faradays Future?
Should A Pickup Truck Be In Faraday’s Future?

Quote:
The FF 91s massive 1,050 hp and stupendous 1,800 Nm of torque could pull continents together, let alone construction and farm duties if the powertrain underpinned a truck.

As for how it could look? Well just cue an open bed, raised ground clearance and plastic cladding that muscle up the FF 91s appearance rather nicely. Sure, it doesn't have the iron-clad, in-your-face look like many of the established pickups out there - yet its in-keeping with Faradays futuristic ambitions.
