Electric Cars vs Small Electric Trucks (made of Unobtanium)

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list

> The Tesla 3 is a nice long range car or Chevy Bolt etc   It’s more of a direct fit to make an electric car since most folks have a fixed mission profile, back and forth to work everyday with a few side errands.  A truck is hard, the distance is usually variable and the load (either hauling or dragging) is variable cutting the range in half.   Not sure how that will work in the open market, probably why they have to put in a *huge* battery with a huge price tag (also making the truck big).  Guess I’m stuck with my smaller old gas Ford Ranger for awhile, don’t want a bulky energy wasteful behemoth.

Hi Mark,
I have a Ford Ranger EV 2000 which was converted to LFP batteries.  About 600 remain in NA, some for sale.  Might be of interest to you.
Take care
