I don't have any kind of golf cart.
Never have, probably never will.

This is just talk, but talk always precedes action so maybe Ford will carry though.
In the meantime it is very important for truck owners to hear from one of their trusted sources that electric trucks are 'OK.'

In the mid Atlantic states I would see grocery getter half ton pickups all the time.
You know pickup truck owners or leasers that still have a pristine bed with no scratches and aren't set up to tow anything. Pretty much drive it around like a car.
Electric pickups would do fine for them.

I honestly never even clicked the article when I saw it pop up on CNBC a few days ago.

I have very little interest in these major manufacturers' announcements of EV vehicles because for many years now they just talk, talk, talk, do nothing. Presumably at some point they will follow-through (?).

An electric Transit van would be great for camping. After plumbing for toilets, redoing the electrical system is the next biggest hassel. The tremendous power generation and storage capability of an EV would eliminate the need for ICE generators, solar panels and big expensive battery banks necessary to run lights, circulation fans, fridges, microwaves and air conditioners.

I had a Ford Ranger electric in 2000. Had NiMH batteries and a range of up to 80 miles (usually 65). I absolutely loved it. When I remodeled my house I put 1500 lbs of slate flooring in the back and it had no trouble at all pulling it home.
Sadly it was totalled by a semi-truck. Saved my life though.

I am sorry your Ranger met its demise. I would have purchased one if they had been available here. I've even one or two at EV shows here in Phoenix that were converted to lithium batteries.
