    The VW ID.GAIA could be the perfect electric truck if only it existed

AND a few months ago, we shared a gallery of amazing VW concepts by Sean Keunyoung Oh, a senior design student at the Korea National University of Arts in South Korea. Sean has now hit our radar again after posting images of his latest creation, an all-electric pickup from VW that could serve as a rival to vehicles like the Ford F-150 Raptor.

Called the ID.GAIA, the concept study was designed to ride on a skateboard platform and, if ever made, could borrow its battery and electric motors from other VW-made EVs. From a visual point of view Sean’s pickup truck it’s quite impressive and has a much more striking and durable design than the current Amarok.

Key elements of the ID.GAIA’s front fascia include a gloss black element where the radiator grille would traditionally be located. This piece of black trim seamlessly connects to the LED headlights. The front also rests on a distinctive skid plate with tow hooks and has a clamshell-style hood that opens to reveal an even bigger chunk than it has Ford F-150 Lightning and the Tesla Cybertruck.

The rugged design of the pickup truck continues with mud wheels and tires. It also seems to have quite a large and spacious cabin, and at 5,870 mm (231 in) long, it still has room for a fairly large bed.

Key features of the truck’s rear include an LED light bar and a unique three-piece tailgate that doubles as storage and folds into steps for easy access to the bed. There is also a spare wheel and full size tire under the bed floor.
