They're saying 300 mi. range, overnight 100% recharge?

0-60 4secs. 700+ ft. lbs. TQ? 10,000 towing?

So I want to tow a boat to Lake Amistad in Del Rio Texas, to do a little bass fishing. It's 200ish miles to get there. Where am I going to stop and charge up my brand new Electric Ford F150? No where! Deal killer. 👎

I would think that 300 mile range would be under perfect/ideal driving conditions....doubt it's anywhere close to 300 miles towing 10K lbs. I thought Federal Law required EV mfgs. to have a 8 yr/100K mile warranty on the battery/powertrain. 🤷‍♂️

So I guess my next question is, can I tow a bass boat 200 miles on one charge?
I'm all for alternative energy sources but the 300+ marketing EV range with current technology may be affected by weather, load, speed, age, etc.....just like your laptop or cell phone. Plan on extra time needed for on-road charging too. When you tow that big bass boat maybe add a gas powered generator?

Right, so just how far should I expect to get pulling 3-4k Lbs? Then after a few years, I should expect to get even less miles between charging because of battery age and use.

Oh C'mon guys!

And we all know, that electricity to charge just spontaneously show up, right?

Can you imagine the power needed to charge all the vehicles in a metro area like a Houston or Dallas/Fort Worth? Then throw in 100°F weather in the summer when the grid is already struggling. I see a disaster in the making if everyone jumps on this at one time, and looks like what is going to happen.

I'm thinking it will be a very slow transition. Especially if we have some actual brain cells running the country in a few years.

That’s what I was thinking too. You’re going to see EV pickup trucks with full home sized generators in the bed.

And I can attest the range on my Prime’s battery is significantly lower when it’s 30F outside compared to when it’s 70F outside. At least I have the ability to burn gas after the battery runs out.

I’d like to see that F150 marketing team do a 300 mile round trip in freezing conditions. Rule is no spare food or sleeping bags when stranded. Help will come in 24 hours after scheduled return. Let’s see how many of them sign up for this. 300 mile range sounds great on paper. I’d take the under on a bet.

I hope your right. Just know that electric vehicles are being added to the grid as we speak. If you were ever thinking about owning a whole house generator, now's the time. I'm thinking natural gas since it seems we have a large supply where I live.
