Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturing giant, has unveiled a new electric pickup truck and a new electric crossover that will apparently make their way to the US.

Foxconn, better known as Apple’s manufacturing partner, has been making a lot of moves in the electric car space lately.

In 2020 it developed an open source hardware and software platform for EV production and worked on the development solid state battery until 2024.

last year Foxconn even bought most of the Lordstown factory in Ohio to produce electric cars.

In addition, the manufacturing giant is also building a large factory in Wisconsin electric cars are expected to be produced there.

Around this time last year, it introduced its first electric car, Foxtron Model C.

Today in Taiwan, Foxconn unveiled two new electric vehicles: the MODEL B crossover hatchback and the MODEL V all-terrain electric pickup truck.

Now, it’s important to note that even though Foxconn has introduced several electric cars so far, it clearly still has no plans to be a consumer-oriented brand, and plans to partner with other automakers to sell its cars.

For example, the Model C introduced last year is now the Luxgen n7, a production car in partnership with Taiwanese automaker Yulon Group.

MODEL B crossover hatchback

The Model B is an electric crossover developed in partnership with Pininfarina.

Foxconn described the car in a press release:

The all-new crossover concept prototype MODEL B is mainstream for the younger generation. It is based on the MODEL C platform, but with changes in platform size and a new body design. Its S-shaped design, streamlined roof and innovative C-pillar air curtain significantly reduce air turbulence. This allows the MODEL B to achieve an excellent drag coefficient of 0.26. As a personalized city car, the compact 4.3m MODEL B has a range of 450 kilometers and uses a 2.8m wheelbase to create a comfortable, spacious cabin.

Foxconn has not yet confirmed the partners that would bring the Model B to market.

MODEL V electric pickup truck

Foxconn hasn’t released that many details about the electric pickup, other than that it has a payload capacity of “up to 1 ton and a large towing capacity of up to 3 tons.”

The company wrote in a press release:

“The EV pickup has a double-cab, 5-seater configuration. Sensors surrounding the body combine with electronic rearview mirrors and a display screen to integrate the dashboard, which not only improves safety, but offers users intelligent technology. The overall experience is suitable for all types of drivers, whether they’re traveling through urban areas or off-road.”

Foxconn has indeed confirmed that the electric pickup will be manufactured in Taiwan, Thailand and the US.
