    ... Is just HIDEOUS. regardless of what you think of electric vehicles in general, this is just nauseating.

    Let's keep the politics out of this discussion please...
    Can you see yourself driving something like this?

    i don't know... remember when the Pontiac Aztec was the ugliest thing on the planet? then Cadillac took that styling and ran with it? now i see cues of those edges and similar lines all over the car market...

    point is... radical styling, when done by a luxury brand... can be a status symbol instead of an eyesore. it's definitely not to my tastes... but i wouldn't be a bit surprised if it caught on

    Usually, the right color can make anything look good. That would be a hard thing to accomplish on this though.
    It looks like something a beginning body man that hasn't learned to shape metal yet and just threw together something on a weekend with a lot of beer on hand.

    I’m disappointed, I was was thinking this a T-series Derek Trucks model humbucker....;)

    Yup, that thing is hideous! Why the faceted body shape? Are going for a smaller radar signature or something?
    Looks like a moon buggy from a 1970’s British si-fi TV show. Yet, still not as ugly as an Aztec.

    As a practical matter, it doesn't look at all useful...in the way a pickup truck might be considered useful. For hauling oversized stuff. At least from what I can see in the pictures anyway.

    I'd be more interested in its capacity and range than appearance. I mean, it isn't about what it looks like, it's about what it can do...isn't it?

    This from a fellow who drives a Prius.

    That truck is an eye-opener. Wow.

    (We have two Priuses—Prii?—in the family and they look weird at first but make sense once you operate one for about 5 minutes. Four adults plus stuff fit in them comfortably as they pass gas pump after gas pump. Never rode in an Aztec but always thought they looked kind of quirky-cool and was puzzled at the negative reaction to them.)

    Hey, it kinda looks like a stealth aircraft. I wonder how it performs against speed radar?:D

    Wow, that is a disaster demo. I am very surprised. I hope his rocket testing is more thorough.

    I can see this vehicle as more of a status symbol, so it could be a hit. It does have that, "Back to the Future" look and we know what happened to that car company.:oops:

    I can imagine what will happen. You come out of Walmart -- okay, you come out of Whole Foods, and all the windows on your Tesla pickup are busted.

    It’s just so unattractive. I ask myself, how much more unattractive can it be? And the answer is none, none more unattractive. F8A88753-21E4-49D1-9246-7120278D548C.jpeg

    Looks like the Rivian will be more useful, if it ever launches. And it should now that they have an agreement with Ford.

    Yeah, but I bet it looks pretty cool going down the street with two mattresses, an old grill, several boxes of clothes and part of a swing set in the back.o_O
