The Chinese automaker introduced its truck with an all-electric power plant. The car is very similar to the Japanese pickup Honda Ridgeline.

On May 23, a tweet appeared telling about the new pickup concept from MAXUS. If you have never heard of this company, it is one of the divisions of the Chinese brand SAIC, which will deal with SUVs and pickups. Little is known about the amazing concept, made in the style of the Japanese Honda Ridgeline truck, but Cable mentioned that under the hood of a novice it could be either a plug-in hybrid engine or completely electric.

The only official MAXUS release about this concept was made on Weibo, a social network that is very relevant in China.

   Unfortunately, the company there also did not say anything about its new product. It was said only this: ‚ÄúSimple and futuristic, what will it be? See you in the second half of 2020. ” The company also calls the MAXUS V. It is worth noting that the front of the pickup is very similar to the current MAXUS Euniq 6.

Given that the fully electric version of the Euniq 6 does not have a radiator grill, the presence of a grill in the MAXUS V truck indicates that it will still be a plug-in hybrid car (PHEV). It is worth emphasizing that this does not mean that the pickup will also not have an electric version, which will be offered separately. The MAXUS sub-brand promised to introduce 20 new models with purely electric and plug-in hybrid motors until 2025.

 The electric Euniq 6 is equipped with a 130 kW (174 hp) engine, the moment of which is 310 Nm, and the power reserve is 510 km.
