And not just the costs. Atlis has also worked on saving time by creating battery pack technology that provides a charging experience equivalent to refueling at the pump. The prototype was fitted with AMV cells and packs capable of powering batteries with a range of 300, 400 and 500 miles (483, 644 and 805 km), as well as an AAC / 1.5 megawatt charging port.
This will allow the vehicle to use the existing charging infrastructure and benefit from ultra-fast charging, which can go from 0 to 100% in less than 15 minutes.
The XT also comes with other cool features. For example, it is available in three or six passenger configurations and has an active headlight management system that allows lighting to be configured to flash colors in an emergency.
In addition, unlike other trucks, the XT step is integrated into the platform structure and extends to both sides of the vehicle. It has an air suspension suspension with dynamic damping that adapts to the vehicle load. The suspension also makes it easier to load and unload the truck by lowering it for easy access.
Available in 6.5 and 8 feet (2 and 2.4 meters), its pickup box comes with a spray-on bed liner. The bed itself is equipped with various outlets, including four 120V / 30 amp sockets, two USB A ports, two USB C ports, and a 240V / 50 amp hookup.
For the interior, Atlis presents a new dashboard design. For better viewing angles, the side mirrors are replaced with screens mounted around the steering wheel, and an instrument cluster screen is attached to the steering column.
The user interface is complemented by a central 12.8-inch touchscreen with all vehicle functions for driver and passengers. All the materials used for the seats and the dashboard are resistant to stains, scratches and tears.
Production of the Atlis XT electric truck is expected to start at the end of 2022.
