Telo pickup truck

Dezeen Debate features "good-looking" and "versatile" electric pickup truck

The latest edition of our Dezeen Debate newsletter features an electric pickup truck that is the same length as a MiniSubscribe to Dezeen Debate now.

Designer Yves Behar has designed an electric vehicle named Telo, which will have the capacity of a pickup truck, but be the length of a small city car.

Yves and his design studio Fuseproject accomplished this by using two small electric motors instead of a large combustion engine which gives the truck a shorter front end.

Readers were fascinated by the vehicle, one praised its "good-looking and versatile" design. Whilst another loved the "cute" concept.
