Agnew, 60, recently debuted the Condor 2015, an all-electric pickup designed for fleet service and deliveries, that conserves energy and saves buyers thousands in fuel costs. Capable of hauling 1,000 pounds and reaching up to 80 mph, the truck was produced in Charlotte, N.C., by EV Fleet Inc., a manufacturing startup Agnew formed this year to assemble and sell electric pickups.

The Condor is a strategic response to what Agnew said he didn’t see on the market — pickups built with motors that ran on energy stored in batteries and no gas components. Yet the Condor’s creation comes just as analysts question the long-term viability of the nascent electric vehicle industry.
