Holy shit 180kWh in a Ford Truck? That's Cybertruck territory...shit is getting serious...all Ford Lightning models...even the base model...are AWD....

Built-in inverter to power your house...$39,974 base model....roughly $20K after government incentives...might be the time to jump before they oversell the incentive program and it all reverts to MSRP and then some...If I had known this I would have waited a bit to go EV as I need a truck...

To put this in perspective, the Ford F-150 moves 900K+ units per year at $40B+,

I'd bet that you already know that the entire death toll from the Chernobyl accident is 31 persons. This remains the worst nuclear accident in the history of the world. Fukushima Daiichi is 1 (one) death.

After we discuss the tens (if not hundreds) of millions of people who have died over the last 100 years simply from inhaling hydrocarbon-based air pollution, God only knows how many more with long-term health effects. After all that, we'll have a chat about the handful of campers who've been exposed to nuclear waste throughout the years...and you can tell me all about how goddamn evil nuclear power is....

$7500 Feds, $5K Oregon/WA...so maybe the truck is $26K OTD? There's a DEQ incentive. I think many incentives expire after the manufacturer hits 50K units or so...could be dead wrong...shit keeps changing...

I worry about the range when towing so I'll be interested in seeing a TFL Truck review. One of the main reasons I have a truck is for hauling bikes to track days a few times a year, it would suck to have something even less capable than my Tacoma for pulling weight.

They towed some empty railcars a few hundred feet and then they added 42 conventional F-150s to the railcars and towed that...and the total load weight was 1.25 million pounds...there was a HUGE disclaimer saying "don't ever do this to your electric truck"...but...Since Elon Musk towed a running F-150 in a weird tug-of-war with the Cybertruck...a strange pissing contest has begun...

Seriously though...towing will massively reduce range...so I think they're doing a bed-mounted range extender to double your effective range and/or extend range under heavy loads...

Said nothing whatsoever about comparative naughtyness. That's completely your takeaway.
We don't have a plan other than pour it on the driveway like old motor oil.

Me I'm all about the solar power satellites. I mean if you've got a fusion plant a third of a million times the size of the Earth already up and running you might want to think about using it, right? But given that we've already got loons claiming that 5G cellular service causes COVID, you can pretty much forget about microwave power transmission from space, at least until we make a seriously large bulk order of straitjackets.
