The new Ford F-150 Lightning can power a home for three days off a full charge (extended range version), or up to 10 days if you ration power. Given our fucked-up power grid, did it just become the most essential truck for Texans?
It can power a work or camp site. It can charge other electric cars. It has a frunk that can take golf clubs or a plug-in cooler (there’s a power outlet in there) or your tools, negating the need for a rear lock box, and you can charge your power tools while they’re in there.
Range is, of course, going to be an issue for a working vehicle. Towing capacity is insane, but the more you tow/carry, the less range you’ll have. I’m not sure the practicalities of taking it hunting/camping, given the likely lack of charging at the destination. But there should be an option to fully charge before making the last turn into the wild, so you’ve got ~150 miles each way.
I have never wanted to own a truck before…
