repairs on the body will be rather difficult if its not painted as to cut out, weld back the exterior panels , sand down and then electronically remove the welding discoloration is not an easy task.

Beauty is really in the eye of the beholder!!

I find that truck ugly. Visually different but not appealing.

Honestly, even though the outside ugly, a lot of it is functional and they were going for different to be able to break out in a mature market. I'm cool with the exterior except for the fact that I'm guessing some of it will need to change to make it street legal with pedestrian crumple zones and stuff. Imagine getting hit by that. Guaranteed disection.

The interior needs a lot of work though, but its just a prototype. That marble countertop fugly and I'm wincing just thinking about hittimg your head on that by mistake.

At the end of the day, it's a truck. Not a luxury vehicle like a hilux or a Navara. I got the sense he is looking to go for more of a madmax amd cyberpunk style so I'm sure you will see people sporting the visible weld fixes like a badge of honour. A well developed patina that could only be achieved through heavy use. This may also help with the super rugged image which is what he seems to be trying very hard for to break the stigma of electric vehicles not being masculine enough for people that need that extra compensation.

I actually kinda dig the look. utilitarian. then again, I eh really care how things look, I care how they perform

you could have the prettiest most powerful most pickup in the world, none of that means squat if it can't move or if it always havin issues that affect performance

dash is paper,
this hipster enough to get people into it with the outlandishness, and its utilitarian enough to actually be usable.
he aint going for macho/masculine, he going for loud, the raj effect.
is like the harmonica song of trucks.

I'm just talking from my local experience. According to that a tiida is more of an offroad vehicle than a hilux. I fedup see fellas easing their hilux over speed bumps and potholes while tiidas always flying through some bushes.

Fact: In the time it took you to read this sentence 3 more tiidas drove into the bushes.

I want one. Only real complaint (aside from charging stations) is not being able to pull tools out from the side of the tray. Well wtf just put your tools to the back of the tray or hop onto the freaking tray to get it. Bunch of first world pansies want to spoil the aesthetics of this beast because they lazy.
