2012 Bremach T. Rex – Click above for high-res image gallery

Bremach has been pumping out rugged work trucks in Italy since the late 1950s, so it's safe to say the company is clued-in to building no-nonsense, workaholic machinery. Its latest creation is called the T. Rex, and goes a long way to proving that EVs don't have to be Dustbuster-shaped people carriers.

Just like the Tesla Roadster proved EV technology can work in a sports car, the Bremach T. Rex proves the instant torque of an electric motor is as handy as a pocket in a shirt off road as well. The T. Rex's electric motor provides 100 kW of power at 0 rpm, with a claimed 150-mile range even under work conditions. Bremach will also warranty the powertrain for 30,000 miles or three years.

If full electric scares you or you want a little more range, the T. Rex is available with a traditional 6.0-liter gasoline-fired Chevrolet V8 with either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic cog box. Even with the big-bore Chevy mill, Bremach claims the truck will achieve 20 mpg on the highway. For those who like to ride the middle line, there are compressed natural gas and hybrid options available as well. All of these powertrain options are available in a two- or four-door hardtop or a two-door convertible.

The T. Rex was designed to be as capable as possible while staying extremely fuel and space efficient. Partly by leaving the truck's spaceframe skeleton exposed, Bremach's designers were able to jam three seats into the T. Rex's narrow cab, which the company claims will withstand five Gs of force. Bremach says that's two Gs more than most of the competition... we'll have to take their word for it. The price for all this is fairly steep, with a loaded EV version of the T. Rex hitting the register at just over $120,000. Awesome don't come cheap.

      I'm thinking Campagna, makers of the three-wheeled T-Rex, are going to have an issue with the name.
      • 3 Years Ago
      It somehow looks like its very stable in a cross wind.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I need this for my daily freeway commute. Badly.
        • 3 Years Ago
        I quickly scanned the article for the word Unimog...it reminds me of the Unimog. Great looking vehicle.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Just don't take a sharp turn too bad. Christ that thing is tall. I guess so zombies can't reach the door?
      • 3 Years Ago
      A greenie car even I can appreciate
      • 3 Years Ago
      This thing is smaller than a Ford Ranger outside of height. It will soon be the only "small" truck left on the market.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I agree T-REXXX'S are bad
      • 3 Years Ago
      I'm conflicted. Technologically this thing is awesome, but everything with RBP on it just screams white trash with money.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Can I get it in green with yellow tiger stripes to go with my masculine physique and prince valiant cut?
      • 3 Years Ago
      Looks like a Sprinter on steroids
      • 3 Years Ago
      awesome but with 150-mile range you wont be "truckin' " for very long but its range is 3x longer i thought when i looked at it
        • 3 Years Ago
        > HAHA I THOUGHT IS WAS POWERED BY TURBOPROPS

        ...except that the planes in the photo have radial piston engines...
        • 3 Years Ago
        HAHA I THOUGHT IS WAS POWERED BY TURBOPROPS
      • 3 Years Ago
      My parents build an off-road around the world camper based on the T-rex with 3.0l (185 bhp) diesel and the Allison 1000 automatic. That thing goes through anything.
      • 3 Years Ago
      This is freakin Awesome! I wonder what the tow and payload capacity are...
      convertible version available?!
