Thundertruck Looks Like a Cybertruck For Beyond Thunderdome
By SHANE MCGLAUN
To distinguish themselves in a crowded EV field, new automotive manufacturers are deviating from the typical vehicle designs. The latest entry, Thundertruck, from the creative agency Wolfgang, appears to be manufactured for a dystopian future.
With its modular design, Thundertruck is designed to be used both on and off-road with generous ground clearance. Its most exciting feature is the range extender that transforms the truck from a traditional four-wheel vehicle to a six-wheel vehicle.
On the vehicle's roof are batwing solar awnings that unfold to capture sunlight and convert it to electricity to charge the battery packs. The awnings also provide shade to help keep passengers comfortable while camping or spending time off-grid.
Thundertruck is equipped with an integrated camping tent designed to extend over the main tray of the truck. It even has an integrated military-grade drone designed to fly ahead of the truck and give the owner a view of the terrain ahead.
One of the more far-fetched features in the truck's interior is a holographic information display. The single rendering offered of the interior shows a head-up display and a completely digital dash system.
Pricing and availability remain a mystery, though. The company behind the truck doesn’t offer any details, nor does it indicate how far it might be from production or if it will be even offered in the US.
