Great idea, to build BEV's that do what ICEVs can't, rather than make the shorter-range more-expensive electric copies of ICEVs available today.

I wonder if they will actually be built?


"eBussy is a modular EV that's also a camper, pickup truck and more

...The base model eBussy will start at €15,800 ($18,525), with the most expensive model, the off-road camper, coming in at €28,800 ($33,309). Electric Brands also plans to build out a network of charging stations where eBussy owners will be able to exchange their depleted batteries for fresh ones. If all goes according to plan, the eBussy will make its way to European roads sometime next year. No word yet on if Electric Brands plans to bring the EV stateside."

Hub motors and roof-mounted solar panels are clues, but one giveaway that this is a pipe dream is the proposed sliding driver controls. :)

It looks like the same wheelbase is used for both the "longbed" and the shorter configurations.

The first BEV manufacturer that builds a compact pick-up with a removable pop-top camper will likely get my business, but I'd much prefer to have a number of choices.

Powering the eBussy is a 10kWh battery that provides an approximate range of 124 miles.
Impressive: a new design with new laws of physics!
