Tesla has the Cybertruck, GM a $113,000 Hummer, and Ford an electric F-150. And then there are the startups.
Hummer's electric pickup packs 1,000 horsepower, removable roof panels, four-wheel steering with CrabWalk mode and standard Super Cruise tech.
The electric pickup segment is going to get really crowded, really quickly. Here are the models confirmed to reach production in the not-too-distant future.

Except, it’s fine with Tesla doing just that. Last week, a bill was introduced in the state, that would prevent direct-to-consumer car brands selling in Michigan without a dealer as an intermediary, Bloomberg reports.
