If you wondered why so many electric pickup trucks are coming to market so soon, here's why:

Instead, GM is after today’s outdoor adventurers, or at least the people who like to look like outdoor adventurers. The Hummer, which hasn’t been produced since 2010, has gained a cult status among a certain kind of driver. General Motors wants the car aficionados and gearheads to pay attention: convince them to go electric, and the whole world might follow. To wit, GM has stuffed plenty of nerdery into the electric pickup. It comes with a crab walk feature that lets the truck drive diagonally and in-vehicle graphics developed by video game maker Epic Games. The truck, the first to use GM’s new Ultium batteries, has a 350-mile range. It can do 0 to 60 in three seconds.

The Ford F150 hybrid is the first to become actually available though, right?
Yes, but it won't be anything like the mentioned standalone electric trucks.
Expect to see hybrid pickup trucks from GM, RAM and even Toyota (next-generation Tundra) before 2022 rolls around.
