Ford reveals the new electric F-150 Lightning truck

Ford unveiled the F-150 Lightning, the company’s first electric pickup truck. The base model, which comes with a battery that can supply 230 miles of range, starts at $39,974, while the extended range version starts in the mid-$50,000s and can go about 300 miles. There are other unique features, like an onboard scale to weigh cargo and many different outlets for onboard charging. Ford said it will be the most powerful F-150 ever made.

    Ford will find long-term success with this truck, but I worry that the majority of F-150 customers will reject it for the foreseeable future. Farmers love their diesel. As of now, the sentiment of rural America is very much anti-EV. Although the Lightning seems that it will be superior by nearly every metric, convincing generations of diesel truck owners to switch to an EV (something they likely see as the antithesis to their identity) will be a serious hurdle. Hopefully I am wrong.

    I wonder how we are going to keep all these work trucks charged , we are currently having rolling power outages all over so imagine all these cars and work trucks plugged in . Also most of the electric cars now have somewhere besides the homes to charge them most office parking lots are getting charging stations but for the work trucks I don’t see how they are getting any charging station out in the middle of a job site , maybe I should start investing in a portable charging business for those who will need a charge when they have a rolling black out or simply forget to do it at home
