Nissan could in turn electrify a pickup, possibly its Titan intended for the American market, but does not seem to want to design a suitable powertrain. Thus, it could leave to the young start-up Hercules the mission of adapting its mastodon to make it a ‘zero emission’ pick-up.
The model would then join the Rivian R1T, whose orders were recently opened, the future Tesla Cybertruck, the next electric Ford F-150, but also the Hummer EV revealed last month.
In any case, Nissan does not plan to integrate a powertrain made in its factories into the Titan, and would like to entrust the creation of the engine to Hercules Electric Vehicles, a start-up created in Detroit three years ago.
According to its official website, Hercules is currently working on an electric pickup entirely designed in its workshops, which is expected to develop 1,000 horsepower and offer a range of 480 kilometers. The partnership with Nissan, which has not yet been validated, could also lead to a model different from the Titan, and different from the Alpha, the vehicle currently being developed by Hercules.
