  1. Electric vehicles are coming along but still not a viable alternative to gas/diesel vehicles. Because if you think about it say at worst you can pull 300miles out of the f150. But then what? How long is it going to take you to recharge it? And the ev charge station infrastructure isn't quite there yet to provide a fast charge everywhere you might want to go. So what is just about everywhere? Standard 110v wall outlets. Damn near every building everywhere has them. So how long would it take to recharge this f150 after 300miles on a standard outlet? 8hrs? 10? That's a hell of a halt to a road trip you only have 5 to 7 days to enjoy off work (assuming paid time off of about a week for vacation time). It would take a long time to get across say Texas 300miles then 8 to 10+hrs downtime. So in my estimation an insane worst case scenario mileage rating like 5000 miles with an 8 to 10hr charge time or 300 to 400 miles with about a 10min to 20min full charge time and the facilities necessary to do so if not on a standard outlet being at pretty much every gas station in the country. Only then would EVs be a real viable replacement. And the world is a long long ways away from that yet.

  2. They should have added a lightning bolt to the side of the bed that almost flickers when you start the car. It has everything but that "oh wow that's a really sweet extra" factor. Like with the mustang; why not add a 3D running horses silhouette to the tail lights when you switch your turn signal on? Add the cool shit Ford!

  3. I don't think it's a good idea. The types of people that buy pickup trucks aren't exactly worried about the environment or fuel prices. They just like the idea of driving a truck or they use it for work. I think it's too soon for electric trucks. Electric commercial/industrial utility vehicles make more sense. Companies could save money with the tax credits they would get.

  4. Ford did the right thing to get Marques do the review. I care little about cars but his review made me hooked for the entire time. Now I am a truck person.

  5. It might vey well be the EV that gets truck drivers converted but there's a few 800 lb gorillas in the room that are not addressed directly therefore one can only assume it's a problem: 1) Average miles per $ in electricity vs gasoline? No one talks about this. Is it going to cost me double, less, etc? 2) Take tow weights of 3000, 6000 and 9000 lbs and tell us what happens to the 300 miles per charge? All the glitter is nice for sure but it has to perform like a truck. 700lbs of torque is nice but not if I have to recharge after 50 miles.

  6. Funny how he says electric cars don't need radiators.. They do… and they use Oil… 300 mile range except if you tow ANYTHING… Battery lasts 5-7 years and costs 25k to replace..

  7. It will keep your power on incase of power outage… But how do you charge it then??? $200/kWh to replace the battery after 7 years??? Yeah they claim the battery lasts up to 10 years… They say the same thing about your iPhone… How long does it last once the battery reaches 80% health??? Good luck in the resale market….

  8. This is the first electric vehicle that i am now not offended by and for once, I'm actually more proud of the recycling of a legendary badge for what used to be a muscle truck into this, Its thoroughly impressive i thought this would be a flop but its actually the truest revolution in electric vehicles, THIS TRUCK! has actually made me excited about electric cars P.S. have never been nor i think will be a tesla geek so i'm buying the f-150, cybertruck was cool but it isn't as cool as the ford IMO

  9. Im mean this in the most well meaning way. You sound so much like a white male if i close my eyes. I tricked my wife to let her hear you and she guest white and midwest dialect. So awsome . hope its a pat on the back…… Live that ford. Got one too….its so sweet…..FORD. BUILT WITH LOVE
