Re: Ford announces BEV F150 and Transit van

Yes, hauling 4 dirt bikes in a trailer, plus riders and gear on a 1300 mile straight thru trip to Colorado might be a stretch for an EV pickup! (even with a great charge station network of the future). Likely always will be room for gas/diesel based vehicles - until legislated out of existence.

Wall Street Journal Rumble Seat 5/12:
"2022 Ford F-150 Lightning: The Everyman’s EV
Starting under $40,000, the electrified version of Ford’s popular F-series is aimed squarely at the heart of its steady commercial clientele. And it’s awesome, writes DanNeil.
YOU MIGHT NEED
to grab hold of something. You are about to read a rave review of
Ford’s first full-size electric pickup, the 2022 F-150 Lightning, which I drove at a press event in San Antonio earlier this month. My positivity may not be suitable for all audiences.
And if you already put down a bunch of money on a posh Rivian R1T electric pickup, before seeing the Lightning? Oh man, you should avert your eyes. After all the hype over Rivian last year, the Ford is the stump-humping electro-truck to want."
