The electric pickup truck with no compromises 

Pickup trucks are the last frontier for electric vehicles

We know that people count on their trucks. From long hauls to mini excursions, they lead to quiet roads and new adventures. From the weekend road-trip to the work site and everything in between, the truck is ultra-reliable and practical.


We want to preserve these experiences. Atlis XT electric pickup truck can handle the needs of today and deliver more.

No burden of fluctuating gas prices. No hassle of long charge times or range anxiety.

"To build a better future, we need to create better alternatives. We created Atlis Motor Vehicles because pickup trucks are some of the most popular vehicles on the market and a vehicle that can benefit significantly from electrification. To deliver an all-electric pickup truck, it must not compromise the existing experience."

- Mark Hanchett, Founder

 

OUR MISSION

Atlis Motor Vehicles is designing and building a plug-in battery electric pickup truck. We want to build a truck with unprecedented capabilities at a reasonable price. We also want to change the customer experience from sales, ordering, financing, and delivery to maintenance and service.

This is a "Testing the Waters" campaign and we are currently giving you the opportunity to reserve shares in Atlis Motor Vehicles.

Vehicle ownership should be easy

AFFORDABLE

Owning a vehicle that meets your needs shouldn't break the bank. From the initial purchase price, to ongoing fuel costs, to lifetime cost-of-ownership, a vehicle should fit your budget.

FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT

Your vehicle should allow you to pick up and go where you need, when you need, without having to spend excessive time planning your trip or stopping for extended periods along the way.

HASSLE-FREE MAINTENANCE

Keeping a vehicle safe, reliable, and long-lasting shouldn't be a chore. Maintaining the vehicle shouldn't cause you to be without it for days on end, having to organize a ride to drop it off and pick it up from a shop.

 

TODAY'S REALITY:

COST OF FUEL

Gas prices can fluctuate wildly and unexpectedly, impacting your choice of vehicle years after purchase. As vehicles age, the fuel economy only degrades.

RANGE AND CHARGING

The need to plan for charging stops and account for the time is at best annoying, and can impact your ability to travel freely.

EXPENSIVE MAINTENANCE

Service bills can catch you off-guard at the least opportune times. Complex combustion engines can fail in complex ways, stranding you without your vehicle.

 

Our electric ecosystem is a holistic approach

To build the best electric truck, we had to put our attention on more than just the vehicle. The entire experience is built upon the vehicle's capabilities and charging infrastructure. So we're developing a battery electric platform, an electric pickup built on that platform, and a charging network - all of which will help us deliver the best experience possible.

The XT Pickup Truck

The world's first 100% battery electric full-size pickup truck, with zero compromises. Capable of up to a 500 mile range and with subscription options that include maintenance. Every truck is custom built to order starting at $45,000.

The XP Platform

Our 100% electric vehicle platform is capable of integration into RV's, box trucks, delivery vehicles and beyond. Capable of extending range, adding accessory battery power, and adding tandem axle configurations for medium and heavy-duty vehicles.

Advanced Charging Station

Capable of delivering enough power for our 15-minute charge times today, and 5 minute charge times tomorrow. We will deploy along major highway corridors to enable long-distance travel, and key metro areas where Atlis customers are concentrated. With a Plug-and-charge experience, you will never have to waste time interacting with a screen and payment system.


Note: Atlis Motor Vehicles will be compatible with existing charging standards. Atlis Motor Vehicles is openly discussing partnerships to advance this development at a faster pace.

 

Who are our customers?

CONSUMERS

From the daily drivers to the off-roaders, from weekend warriors to the truck enthusiasts, consumers of all kinds will appreciate the ease of electric vehicle ownership with the capabilities they need.

TRADESPEOPLE AND FLEET OWNERS

Individuals and businesses who use trucks to do their job benefit from reduced cost of ownership, less repair time, a quiet vehicle on the work site, extra storage, and on-board power.

VEHICLE UPFITTERS

Upfitters looking for an electric platform for delivery vehicles, people movers, RVs, and more will find the highly customizable XP platform can fit their varied needs.

 

MILITARY

The benefits of quiet and capable vehicles with redundant drive systems are obvious, and coupled with autonomous capabilities will free up resources and keep troops safer.

Supporting the aftermarket community

The aftermarket is essential to Atlis Motor Vehicles success. Trucks are tools for people to do a job and are among the most highly customized vehicles to suit a wide variety of purposes. As such, we want the truck to be adaptable to as many situations as possible to meet the needs of the various customers. We alone aren’t going to be able to do it, and there are tens of thousands of accessories and add-ons in the truck market already. We want our trucks to be customized, to do real work. Atlis Motor Vehicles will work with top aftermarket vendors to ensure that the XT can be tailored to meet any needs.

ATLIS XT WITH SERVICE BODY

ATLIS XT WITH FLATBED

Reduced cost of ownership

The Atlis Motor Vehicles XT pickup truck is expected to cost you less to own, putting more money in your pocket.


  • Competitive initial price
  • Zero Cost-of-Maintenance guarantee with subscription
  • Reduced operating and energy costs
  • Warranty for 10 years
  • Available tax credits are not considered in our pricing model


The XP Platform

Atlis Motor Vehicles completed the rolling XP platform prototype in March of 2019, complete with suspension and steering systems integrated in our modular drive system design. The modular drive units are nearly identical front and rear, with the exception of the steering mechanisms. In the future 4-wheel-steer will be possible with this system, but by using this modular approach we are able to keep supplier and manufacturing costs down compared with traditional approaches. With this platform we are performing testing and refining our design, such as improving our air-over-shock setup and creating an independent rear suspension dually version.

 

Battery development

In October of 2018 we completed a prototype battery pack that we were able to fully charge in less than 15 minutes - under 13 minutes, actually - beating our goal by over two minutes. This battery pack was about 3 kWh in size, and was charged with a Chademo DC fast charge station. Our prototype pack has a unique cooling system for optimum temperature management during charging or operation. Atlis Motor Vehicles is in the process of scaling this pack to a larger size to continue testing.

 

Our revenue streams

 

DIRECT PURCHASE

Owners may purchase their vehicle outright in cash or finance through our select vendors. Vehicle purchases will include our maintenance-free guarantee, minus consumables such as tires, as well as our 10-year vehicle warranty. The XT Pickup will start at $45,000.

SUBSCRIPTION

Atlis Motor Vehicles will be offering a subscription service for vehicle owners who want to replace their vehicle every 3, 5, or 7 years. This subscription model includes the cost of the vehicle, vehicle charging, vehicle insurance as well as all regular maintenance such as tire changes and repairs for one low monthly price - starting at $700 a month.

SECOND LIFE

Any vehicle returned to Atlis at the end of the subscription becomes an asset, allowing us to profit from the vehicle a second time. We will resell or re-subscribe subscription returns based on condition and time frame, otherwise batteries can be re-purposed for energy storage.

ELECTRICITY PURCHASE

Atlis Motor Vehicles will receive charging revenue from its charging network - supporting non subscription customers and any other medium or heavy duty vehicle with a high power charge requirement.

 

All XT pickup trucks are made to order with all purchases made through our online configuration menu and delivered directly to you. Maintenance and service will also be scheduled online, and can often be performed at your convenience, while you're at home or work. Atlis Motor Vehicles will continuously expand our network of local repair shops.

 

The Market

$116+ Billion Dollar Market*

  • In the United States, full-size American pickup trucks are #1, #2, and #3 best selling vehicles for the past 5 years (2014-2018)

  • Top 3 selling pickups have grown 7.1% in sales year-over-year for the past 5 years

  • 2.4 million full-size trucks sold in 2018


* based on average selling price of $48,377 (source: Detroit Free Press) on 2.4 million full-size trucks sold in 2018


Electric vehicles have penetrated almost every segment of transportation - from bicycles, skateboards, and surfboards to motorcycles, buses, ferries, and mining equipment - but not pickup trucks.  The most popular vehicle segment in North America has slipped through the electrification cracks, and the demand is already there.

Governments and organizations are also pushing for electric solutions

Global governance trends show that combustion engine vehicles will be banned from new sales in many countries in the upcoming decades, and older combustion engine or diesel vehicles are starting to be banned from certain locations like city centers.  The reason for the push is mostly due to efforts to improve air quality in cities, an increasing problem globally.

 

Competition

'THE BIG THREE'

Ford, Chevrolet, and RAM Trucks have not made any public announcements of a battery-electric pickup, with the recent exception of Ford's ambiguous announcement that an electric F-150 may be coming around 2022.  So far, their only concept of electrification in the truck space has been mild hybrid (HEV) systems. GM has put such systems on SUVs in the past (though canceled the program), and Ford has also talked about doing hybrids in the future, but to date, no existing or upcoming full-size truck platform from these manufacturers has ever had a plug. GM’s VP of Global Strategy recently stated: “The core business is going to be the core business for a couple of decades to come” … “There will not be any AV/EV pickups.”

'HYBRID ALTERNATIVE'

The Workhorse W-15 is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) with an all-electric range of 80 miles. Targeting mainly fleet markets, their solutions do not decrease the maintenance requirements or fully take advantage of electric power.


'THE NEW GENERATION'

Tesla, Rivian, and Bollinger are other US-based EV companies which are also developing electric pickups. These developments are proof of the growing demand for electrification within the truck and SUV segment.


Tesla has been talking about doing a pickup truck for some time, though to date has only released a single sketch. Tesla has stated that the pickup would come after Model Y, and an announcement regarding the pickup is expected in the summer of 2019. 


Rivian has revealed the R1T, a mid-size pickup with a short bed. The truck is aimed towards the luxury/adventure market with pricing starting above $69,000.


Bollinger Motors is developing a mid-size pickup based on the same platform as their B1, called the B2. It will have a range of 200 miles and a focus on being a utilitarian work truck. They are currently in a pre-production phase, having completed a prototype of the B1 SUV.

This includes expanding our facilities, growing our team, deploying charging stations, and more. We have finalized many technical requirements for the vehicle, and will continue to refine these requirements as we develop the full-scale working prototype of the XT pickup truck. This effort will involve many short-term and long-term partnerships with organizations that can assist Atlis Motor Vehicles in bringing our XT pickup truck to prototype and to production. We will begin a pre-order campaign as we get closer to the start of manufacturing.

FAQs

Will Atlis expand into other types of vehicles such as passenger cars?

We believe in sticking to what interests us, and more importantly what the industry is most interested in. Car sales are declining while trucks and SUVs are increasing. We have no intentions of developing an electric passenger car at this time.  We may consider other types of work vehicles, pursuing other styles that may make sense on our platform such as vans.


Where will you be selling your truck?

You will be able to purchase and receive your Atlis Motor Vehicles XT pickup truck within any of the 50 United States when we begin shipping.  We do not currently have a plan to sell internationally immediately following the launch, however, we are working on proposals for certain international markets and will provide more details in the future. Where we focus our efforts will depend on the opportunity in other regions.


How will you interact with the service and aftermarket communities?

Atils Motor Vehicles understands that trucks are tools for you to customize to your needs.  As such, we want to work with the aftermarket community to make sure you can configure your XT pickup to do the jobs you need.  We also support the concept of right-to-repair and will ensure that the proper diagrams and diagnostic tools are available to owners and certified service facilities.


What will you do for the legal blocks to your plans, such as direct sales in certain states, and digital mirrors which aren't legal in the US?

We understand that the legal landscape is constantly changing and that new technology and business models are often ahead of the law.  Of course, Atlis Motor Vehicles must work within the current laws but we always have our eye on the future.  Tesla - and others - are already fighting some legal battles which will benefit Atlis Motor Vehicles and others to follow as well.  If the laws haven't changed when we're ready then we will implement alternate options which are in compliance.


How will you compete with other EV startups, Tesla, and Ford who may also be planning electric pickup trucks?
There is no full-size battery-electric production pickup truck in existence to date, nor are any of them on the near-term production horizon for the next couple of years.  There are a few players who have made a variety of announcements, but the market is still wide open.  Atlis Motor Vehicles always welcomes competition as it drives innovation for everyone.  The pickup truck market in America is a very large market with many sub-segments, and it is still growing so we believe there is a great opportunity for disruptive technologies like our own.


How will your batteries handle 15-minute charge times, when nobody else is doing it?

Current battery technology can support charging at a 4C rate (15-minute full charge) and already does so (and more) in a variety of consumer industries.  Batteries rated at 4C are readily available from numerous manufacturers.  Hyundai EVs have had over 2C charging rates for years, and the upcoming Audi and Porsche vehicles will be approaching 4C rates as well.  The problem isn't so much the batteries, but when assembling these batteries into a large battery pack for an EV then other problems arise such as thermal management, and ability to transfer current through a human-manageable cable and connector.  These are the issues that Atlis is working to solve.

XP Platform Update and happy Earth Day!

29 days ago


We said it was coming, and we've shared on Social Media. But here it is in all its glory, the XP Platform from Atlis Motor Vehicles. This prototype is just that, a concept and prototype of the design intent behind Atlis Motor Vehicles' vision of the future.


The XP Platform shows some very unique capabilities we're developing, and this platform will be used to continuously develop technology as we work towards production readiness in late 2020.

  • A modular drive system sub assembly with integrated cooling and power management that is completely isolated from the rest of the system. This unique approach allows each system to manage performance independently of other systems. 
  • A very large center structure to support battery pack sizes to meet our 300 and up to 500 mile capabilities. 
  • Front and rear steer capabilities
  • A frame architecture which can be adjusted to accommodate different vehicle sizes, capabilities, and needs while keeping to main drive sub systems and battery pack modules common to massively reduce costs. 
  • A plug and play integration with vehicle bodies. Utilizing complete drive by wire capabilities, with isolated thermal management systems, our XP platform will be a true plug and play solution. 
  • High ground clearance with a comfortable ride. Utilizing air springs and software enabled shock controls, we can provide a vehicle which is comfortable on the street when loaded or unloaded. 






XP Platform is coming soon!
