    I guess it makes sense but it still feels blasphemous.

    I like it. If they make a performance pickup EV, this is pretty much the ideal branding opportunity. Overlap of nostalgia and something that has an apt name for a fast EV.

    Probably the perfect pickup for most people.

    I said it before in the F-150 thread, but the ideal one to me would be 4x4 hybrid. Gas powered RWD, with electric motor FWD. Use the front for daily city driving, and the rear for hauling shit around. Both when needed.

    So 50% of truck drivers in Alberta just driving in FWD for the entire life of the truck? Doesn't sound very fun.
