Back in the early 20th century, heavy trucks (like this five-ton beer wagon) often used electric power to transport heavy cargo. So the Bremach T. Rex EV has a few antecedents. Slow, lumbering antecedents. Or get it with a Chevy V8.

The Italian company's been building traditional Unimog competitors for decades. Now it's putting out an electric-powered version of its T. Rex model with similar all-terrain capability as its gasoline-fueled counterparts. The EV uses a low-voltage VLV motor-generator (114V DC) with peak power of 200 kilowatts (268 hp) and 150 kilowatts of continuous output (201 hp) and 265 lb-ft of torque. Alternatively, the T. Rex be had with a six-liter Chevrolet V8 (optionally powered by natural gas), producing 323 hp and 373 lb-ft of torque, over a GM four-speed 4L85E automatic, and a series hybrid version pairs a two-liter gasoline engine with an electric motor and 40kWh battery pack.


So how much? Expect to pay about $120,000 for a fully equipped EV version of the T. Rex. Because electric truck.
