The forthcoming 2020 Atlis XT is a full-size electric pickup truck you’ve probably heard about. The automaker claimed that the battery can be charged from 0 to 100 percent in 12 minutes. Only the time will prove if those claims are false or not. Whatsoever, the electric truck is coming to the markets.
It will feature a boxy appearance and bold exterior design. The interior is modern, unique and durable. Moreover, this pickup truck offers a four-wheel-drive setup and the impressive tow rating. Atlis also claims the XT model can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only five seconds.
2020 Atlis XT Delivers Something Completely Different
It would be an understatement to call this car “intimidating”. The 2020 Atlis XT is not an ordinary pickup truck. Instead of traditional design, Atlis decided to deliver something completely different. The fact is, you either like it or not. The exterior design looks bold and unique. Boxy appearance doesn’t look that much attractive.
The front end looks odd but satisfying. However, the rest of the body is at least questionable. There are no wing mirrors. The side cameras are projecting an HD video that displays inside the cabin. The wheels are looking “fat” as one of those off-roading wheels. The rear design is strange as well, as you can only find the taillights and the Atlis’ badge.
The interior is looking much better than the exterior. The 2020 Atlis XT comes with a modern cabin that looks clean and stylish at the same time. Most of the controls can be found on the touchscreen. The infotainment system is impressive and it supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Atlis is saying the interior is very customizable. However, no one knows what does the customization includes. Optional luxuries such as leather seats or carpet floors are optional.
However, the comfort is great even if you opt for the base model. Interior is durable and it looks unique, no doubt about it. The XT truck is available in two cab configurations. Extended cab and a four-door crew cab models are in the offer. Bed sizes are 6.5-feet and 8 feet long.
2020 Atlis XT Powertrain
The upcoming 2020 Atlis XT Electric Truck will be offered in a four-wheel-drive configuration. The truck can tow up to 35,000 pounds with the fifth wheel and gooseneck. Maximum trailer towing capability in regular conditions is rated at 20,000 pounds. We still don’t know the exact output details.
However, Atlis claims the upcoming XT model will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in five seconds. Top-speed is rated at 120 mph. Just to compare, Rivian R1T model sprints from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds flat. The numbers are really impressive and some of you won’t believe in those claims. However, the most impressive claim by the Atlis is the charging time. According to the automaker, the battery can be charged from 0 to 100 percent in only 12 minutes. It will be able to travel 500-mile range.
2020 Atlis XT Price and Release Date Rumors
The Atlis is still an unknown brand in the automotive industry. The price is a mystery, for now. The 2020 Atlis XT comes with the promising details. In order to compete with the Rivian’s and Tesla’s models, the price will most likely start at around $90,000. On top of that, the release date is not available yet, but the most likely date is the beginning of 2020.
