Ford stole a little thunder (and lightning) from the God Zeus, as they introduced their first ever EV pickup truck- the FV 150 Lightning. Jim Motavalli, writing in Sierra Magazine, says it is sure to give a “big jolt” to electrification in our vehicle landscape.
Motavalli writes, “Three obstacles to EV adoption, according to studies, are price, range, and charging infrastructure. This vehicle clearly checks off at least the first two.” The price is competitive with the gas guzzling F 150 version, and range is a hefty 230 miles. It even has superpowers: 9.6 kilowatts of backup power that can power your home during an outage. Take that Zeus!
