Either way, this is Daimler's new Urban eTruck, an all-electric intra-city hauler.

Its lithium ion batteries are hidden inside the frame for better crash protection.

There's no word on battery capacity, but it's bound to be yuge.

But since it's a big, heavy truck, it'll only get about 125 miles on a single charge.

It's got a charging port, just like your Nissan Leaf.

The Urban eTruck is powerful enough to have a gross weight rating of about 57,000 pounds.

I can't imagine it taking less than several hours to bring this up to a full charge.

It's not ready for prime time just yet, but it's obviously pretty darn close.
