The Bison is a zero-emission vehicle with and all-wheel-drive transmission with an advanced electronic management system.

The truck is built on a carbon fibre reinforced steel space frame, with class-leading torsional stiffness for enhanced durability and handling, the company said.

Unlike most pick-up trucks, the Bison has an angular cladding. Its wedge profiles, short overhangs, and tires that are pushed to the corners give it a distinctively angular and aggressive look.

Its rugged off-road capabilities allow for 54 per cent hill start and 21 per cent hill climb at full load.

The Bison is powered by a dual-motor, fully electric powertrain driving the four corners. 

The Bison is capable of traveling 300 km on a single charge.

It also features “instant connectivity, touch screen display, and driver assistive technology calibrated to meet both the day-to-day work demands and active lifestyle needs of adventurers,” the company said.
