If we go ahead in time and think about the requirements of that era from a pickup vehicle, we guess it would be different from today’s trucks. We would expect more power, range, better performance, and high-tech features. Although Volkswagen has not disclosed anything about the new pickup truck, we believe it will be at least a three-motor setup. Scout truck should be an all-wheel drive as standard.

We believe the Scout pickup truck will get a motor setup producing nearly 600 to 700 horsepower. It will be a requirement of the future.
As a pickup truck maker, Scout must work on better suspension, high ground clearance, and other off-road features. The new off-road specialist brand should focus on the range as well. As we move towards the future, many rivals are introducing high-range vehicles. Tesla is already way ahead in the range competition. Recently Hyundai and Kia also announced a high range of electric vehicles. Scout should offer at least 300 to 400 miles of range. The expected starting price of the Scout electric pickup truck will be around $55,000. Now, let’s talk about the new SUV.
