    1. Don’t think a V8 is the go but electric engine that can deliver its own power similar to diesel electric engines running now Until we have enough power in our full electric engines.

  1. Fully electric with a portable generator at the front. How is that?
    Coming from a Tesla I feel current cars/trucks are pretty boring.

  2. Big motor. 1500kg load capacity for cab chassis and extracab chassis. Front traction control NOT disabling when the rear diff lock is engaged. Catch can and second fuel filter standard. Bigger fuel tank.
