    With Tesla opening up the Supercharger network, this truck is so much more viable for me. A normal truck that happens to be electric is my dream.

    I don't get why electric cars have engine bays (used as front trunks). It's not necessary. Why not just make it flat to reduce size and weight or find a way to use that to give it extra cabin space?

    Price sounds good from Ford for 39,900.
    But, you have to deal with dealers markup.
    After dealer's greed, I see it more as 45k for base model. All other truck models will also be marked up 5k to 10k.
    Hard to compete with fixed price Tesla and Rivian if dealers and Ford don't come together.

    Worth mentioning it has 2 motors - 4x4 drive standard. I'll be looking at this in a few years when I'm done with my 2016 Lariat. I hope this game-changer release helps propel forward the building of electric vehicle infrastructure in the near future. I don't think it will take too long; I mean, businesses already have electricity - they can install charging stations rather quickly as soon as demand is there.

      Why? The average American drives 40 miles a day, most truck owners do 80% of their driving in town. The few that need more range will just have to wait a few more years. (2025) Also 400 to 500 will be the standard range for the immediate future, (within the next couple of years) with fast charging times.of 10 to 15 minutes for.15% to 80%.... Is it as fast and convenient as gasoline no, but the technology of evs and batteries are just beginning....

    Pretty cool stuff Ford has going on here. I'm pretty excited about it!
    On the Bi-directional battery- "power your house for several days" is not realistic. I have a Powerwall (13.3kW) This will run our house for about 24 hours, sans air-conditioning. In order for the Powerwall to stay functioning, we need sun - which we just put to the test for 10 days in New Orleans after the most recent hurricane. We were able to also charge our car (albite very slowly).
    I think a very important key to mass adoption of electric vehicles is the auto manufactures need to put as much effort into developing the charging network as Tesla has. We've already seen we can not count on our legislators to build the necessary infrastructure for us b/c they are too busy shoveling money into the pockets of large money donors.
    I'm very excited for the electrified future. I DO hope that this truck is less of an engineering and logistic nightmare than the Mach E. - my god what a shit show...
    Great review - even if it was ford sponsored. ;)

      Even the lower range 230 mile Lightning will have a battery capacity of around 100 KWhrs, so why don’t you believe that it CAN run your house for several days ? The average American household uses around 30KWhrs a day. So yes, a full charged Lightning it will be able to power your house continuously for 2-3 days !!

    I don't like the cyber truck. It feels impractical and gimmicky and doesn't really look like the rest of the tesla line. This for and the Rivian are both very exciting to me. Feels like something you can make the most of! It works for so many reasons and gives you soo much bang for your buck! Heavily considering the F150 lighting.

    I would prefer the Cybertruck, but that is just because we are already a Tesla car family. But the design meant that the wife could not approve the purchase of that vehicle, so I guess I am going to be an F-150 guy soon! I am a contractor by trade and the uses of a truck are so advantageous, and being an EV I could not ask for more.

    Well done video mate . A quick tip/Public service announcement if I may: If you’re a grown man (past 20 years) and you’re still saying “fire”, “dope”, or “clutch” to describe something cool, might not want to do that anymore.. it’s time to let that go.. (especially if you’re doing an amazing job at describing vehicles.. “clutch” is just going to confuse old people…)
