Let's see, a sloping rear with a retractable cover sounds like it would improve fuel efficiency greatly. A pickup is notoriously bad at aerodynamic efficiency; lots of flat backs (window, tailgate) create negative pressure and the open truck bed causes disruption in air flow. Do you have anything to back up your claim? Have you done aerodynamic modelling? Others who are more interested in science than throwing stones have.

It doesn't have a cargo capacity to hold very much.  Nobody will buy a truck with a super small cargo bed unless they just want to look cool and hip, regardless of fuel efficiency.  These look like sad tech demo prototypes from 1984 to me.

Also i do have a giant aerodynamic modelling chamber in the my backyard, ill invite yuz all over for beers and wind tests.  :P
I queef, therefore I am.
