Chinese automaker BYD has given a sneak peek at its first-ever electric pickup truck, gearing up to take on established brands like Rivian and Ford.

The truck, draped in bold blue and orange camouflage, boasts a tough, muscular design that truck enthusiasts will appreciate. Unlike some rivals, it’s likely to stick with a traditional body-on-frame setup, promising robust load and towing capacities.

Although BYD has confirmed a 2024 launch, details on pricing and availability are scarce. Despite the U.S. being a major truck market, BYD has no plans to sell the pickup there due to market complexities.

However, with a strong presence in other global markets, including Thailand and Australia, BYD aims to meet the global demand for electric pickups.

This move into electric pickups expands BYD’s already diverse lineup, which includes electric sedans and high-performance vehicles.

While the pickup may not reach U.S. shores, BYD is eyeing the North American market through Mexico, hinting at potential localized production.

As BYD continues to innovate in the electric vehicle space, the debut of its electric pickup truck signals a significant step forward in sustainable transportation, offering consumers worldwide a glimpse of what’s to come.
