The aforementioned trucks will be made in the US and exported to India. Triton EV was recently in the news when the brand had opened its bookings for the Model H in the country. While the launch as well as price were to be announced on May 10, 2021, understandably due to the present pandemic, it has been postponed. The Model H is an eight-seater electric SUV and boasts 200kWh batteries that propel it from 0-100kmph in around three seconds. At the same time, one can fully charge the SUV in just two hours, using a fast charger. There is also a massive warranty of 10 years on the car. The Model H looks as big and butch as any other American SUV and boasts a massive 1,100km+ range.
The company says that the Model H is capable of producing more than 1,500hp and is built for the long haul. Pre-bookings had started for the Indian market but as discussed before, they have now been stopped.
