Worksport launched a new website, releasing information on a brand new tonneau cover system with solar power integration: the TerraVis system - a platform for versatile and cost-effective solar power integrations for pickup trucks.

This TerraVis cover is the very first to combine practical, durable tonneau covers with a cutting-edge solar generation and energy storage system, according to the manufacturer. This website launch marks the first release of design and application-related details. The company also announced that it is in discussions with various parties interested in commercial partnerships with the TerraVis technology system, including a high-profile future electric truck manufacturer.

The Concept TerraVis was conceptualized with the goal of elevating today's pickup trucks and creating more intelligent accessories. The platform takes advantage of a standard pickup truck’s practical capabilities, while utilizing the power of sustainable and renewable energy.

“Worksport is beyond excited to launch the website with this preliminary information, as this is a system that not only has the power to revolutionize truck use now, but also to carry over into future developments,” said WKSP CEO, Steven Rossi, “Everyone is moving towards solar power and renewable energy sources and so is the pick-up truck market. Our system is being designed to, among other things, provide a meaningful source of energy for the new wave of electric trucks.”

RRanging from supporting a workstation at home, on the job, powering a campsite, or even providing immediate power in the face of a crisis or natural disaster, the TerraVis energy store and mobile charging pack is designed to be invaluable in any circumstance that demands mobile power. Built into the framework of a tonneau cover, the TerraVis system enables current pickup truck owners to utilize sustainable energy through advanced solar power technology without investing in the latest trend of electric trucks.

TerraVis also caters to new electric truck owners, generating up to 1,000 watts of meaningful power to be used to mitigate range anxiety and act as additional charge energy, with no carbon footprint, storing excess power in its expandable power storage banks.
