The U.S. Army has taken delivery of an electric pickup that could serve as a Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV) one day.
It is from electric truck startup Canoo and based on the retail and commercial pickup it plans to have in production next year.
Canoo was started in California, but is moving its headquarters to Bentonville, Arkansas, and will build its vehicles at a factory in Pryor, Oklahoma.
The LTV has been equipped with lightweight bulletproof Kevlar panels for use in combat environments.

The civilian model has a similarly innovative design with flip down sections integrated into the bed sides that can be used as work tables.

The production version of the van has an estimated price of $34,750.
