Foxconn unveils new EV crossover and pickup concepts

Taiwanese manufacturing giant Foxconn has unveiled a new electric pickup truck and a new electric crossover, both of which are expected to make it to the United States.

About a year ago, Foxconn debuted its first electric vehicle, the Foxtron Model C. Since then, the company has been making moves designed to capitalize on the electric vehicle market, including developing a platform of open-source hardware and software for EV manufacturing in 2020.

Foxconn is also working to develop a solid-state battery by 2024 and recently purchased most of Lordstown’s factory in Ohio to produce electric vehicles. The company is also building a factory in Wisconsin to support electric car manufacturing.

The new vehicles, the Model B crossover hatchback, and the Model V all-terrain electric pickup, will follow Foxconn’s plans to stay out of the consumer-facing market. Foxconn plans to continue to work with other automakers to sell its vehicles.

Last year’s Model C is now the Luxgen n7 – a production vehicle in partnership with Yulon Group, an automaker out of Taiwan. The Model B electric crossover was designed in collaboration with Pininfarina. No news yet on which partners will bring the Model B electric pickup to the market.

The company did say the EV pickup would have a payload capacity “of up to one ton and a greater towing capacity of three tons.” Foxconn confirmed that the EV pickup would be manufactured in Taiwan, Thailand, and the US.
