YAK Car Pic of the Day

smart for-us concept truck, 2012 NAIAS

…from the 2012 NAIAS comes the plug-in electric smart for-us pickup truck. You read that right, a pickup truck, but it’s just a concept for now. Small by pickup standards, it’s huge compared to the smart fortwo — three feet longer as a matter of fact. But still shorter than a Mini Cooper.

 The for-us has over 11 cubic feet of storage space behind the passenger area, and is powered by a 75 HP electric motor, connected to a 17.6 kW/h lithium ion battery pack. See more here.

    THAT’S NOT A TRUCK, IT’S A AHH… HMMM..UUHH…ERRR, WEEL, IT’S SOMETHING, BUT THAT’S NOT A TRUCK!

    Please don’t shoot the messenger.
    It was the smart folks who decided to call it a truck.
    But you’re right. it doesn’t walk like a truck or quack like a truck.

  • Is there a way for you to upload larger pictures? I love this series and I’d love to see bigger images.

      I’ve gone back and added links to the NAIAS photos.
