Lets talk about the Hybrid and Lightening F150's ! "The next generation !"
Think it depends on the Range I need, right now 600 miles perty much means the Hybrid is my choice if costs lower some.
The Lightening looks like a great daily commuter somewhere between 100 and 200 miles round trips !
Saw today that Ford has its supply of Chips for Puter, body module etc are coming back so 1000's of built F150's can be delivered this summer ! Yea !
That's great news! I could get by with a hybrid, but pure electric needs a 500 mi range to make it worthwhile
I know, me too ! The Lightening from all I have read is a 75/175 Mile daily driver, designed for Commercial usage along with the Transit van with basically the same power driver setup in them. All for Commercial Customers. Not saying that a daily driver going less than 200 miles, most families are under 150 miles wouldn't love its Power supply. Is us who have to recharge in the middle of nowhere who lack the range ! My Daughter wants one, I think a Maverick with a Honda Charger in the bed to give the crew more power on site is a good choice for her, she wants to get onsite experience and I want to get her out of our home office. Lol ! The Charger gas is easily kept records of & cost mostly tax deductible.
I do see Truck Port areas with huge Construction Parking lots adding maybe 10 charging stations to meet some kind of simple need of recharge in the next couple of years along I States roads. Still it becomes a joke of Recharge in a long line belief that its gonna actually work for Millions of electric cars. Millions of cars on the move every day is a fact !
5 million cars and 18 wheelers move within 100 miles of me every morning ! All day long, maybe 20 million total in 12 hours ! Maybe more. States in my 300 mile circle 40 million at least every day all day long like lil ants following each other all over heck !
I do believe the 2nd stage charger with a 2nd service meter or Solar are the way to go if we do switch to Lightnings. Ya got to be able to quickly charge and go is my experience. Way to busy to wait 12- 15 hours to charge a truck. Hope we get tons of rapid Charger locally soon ! My experience is 40 minutes on a Fast Charge gets yolu maybe 100 miles down the road if you are empty or the Camper at a Campgrounds. Maybe limp back to the Rapid Charger to get an 80% recharge over a couple of hours while lil woman fixes dinner.
Believe the deliveries are beginning to pick up speed. Yea ! These trucks are loaded with Semi conductors to control and deliver messages. Yea ! Thas needed and is A+; the Chips are beginning to appear. Production quantities can continue to multiply as time passes.
Not into EVs but the new Ford Lightning got me interested.
