If Tesla doesn't offer one yet, you make your own, or Simone Gierzt did

I love Truckla already, and she is so adorable it hurts. Seriously, just watching her be so happy about this project made me smile so hard my face ached. That's some good stuff there. :up:

That's a Ute, not a truck. (I still like it though)

Utes are stupid and there is a reason no one sells a small pickup in the USA, they don't sell.
I don't think anyone is looking for a pickup truck with 4 inches of ground clearance either.

I still drive a 2000 Ranger. :shrug:

I disagree entirely. Small pickups once owned the road in many places, as they were perfect for a lot of things. At one time the Ranger was one of the best selling Ford pickups made - far outnumbering the larger (and more expensive) F-150's and F-250's. What killed them were the CAFE standards that made them unattractive.

and the point is that a proper electric pickup truck doesn't exist yet.

I loved my S-10.
I think GM should bring the Holden Ute to the US, and re-brand it El Camino.
I think they would be very popular.

After a bit of research it appears that just the opposite happened.
The Holden website no longer list the Ute. It has been replaced by a re-branded Chevy Colorado.

Holden used to make some cool cars. I just visited their site and...man oh man, what a dreary lineup of boring vehicles.

It is a shame that actual cars don't look more like concept cars. I mean, I'm sure they are more expensive to produce, but if they looked like that, I doubt sales would be as much of an issue.

Assuming it was built to modern safety standards, had a current engine, etc., I'd drive the crap out of that.

Chrysler tried that "Retro-Look" thing a while back. It started out with a bang but quickly fizzled out.

True, but Chrysler screwed the pooch on those pretty hard. They were generally overpriced and reliability was crap. Even at that, I still like the Prowler.
