Not sure if it's too early since we just got the Mach E Mustang EV this week, but man, that F150 EV is just some kind of cool as well......my wife and I really want one.....I'll be watching as the reviews come out...these aren't shipping till next Spring to Summer I've been told and the decent ones are going to be the Lariat or Platinum; anything lower than that and it wouldn't be worth it to have for what I want it for....so prices will be up there.

It's going to be interesting to see how they do. I got excited about the bi-directional charging system, I can see how handy that would be.

Really happy for you!

Thanks.....it's supposed to be able to power a 3 bedroom house for up to 3 days on a full charge....that's insane. Couple that with some solar panels and you can really do a lot regardless of where you're at.

That's a good idea. I'm not big on solar, but that would probably be a very efficient set up.
I have been led to believe Ford is producing the batteries in house, and they are "supposed" to be readily available for replacement, so hopefully these trucks will be a product that lasts and can be repaired as they age.
Looking forward to pics when you get it by the way.

Thanks....I think this truck will be revolutionary; not because of the tech. I actually think Tesla has the upper hand on quality and tech for cars and their Cyber Truck compared to the F150 Lightening. I think it's going to revolutionize the electric vehicle industry simply because it's the F150; the name and the brand carries SO MUCH weight in the area of work trucks and family vehicles even.

I'm not willing to speculate about market acceptance, I thought bottled water would never sell.

I would like to ask, did you order the presidential package?

For me, it doesn't make sense to buy anything less than the extended battery optioned one.

So it's the premium or platinum package for us or bust.

Our reservation puts us in line to order, but the build date comes later in the process where we can put in our colors and options.

I'm getting the "ice blue silver" color! I'm am TOTALLY DONE WITH BLACK......such a hard color to keep polished.

That's awesome! Hopefully the chip shortage issue can be resolved and they will actually be able to build them.

A buddy of mine was just notified that his new Bronco has been delayed with no date set yet.
