Tesla just dropped price almost back to original level. For example the most popular Model Y used to cost $50k, increased to $66k last year, now it is $53k, and it could get $7500.
I think we would see F150L price drop back to 2022 level, agree?
I have not seen any update on overheat issue. I would also like to know if it charges other EV's.
I cannot install the 100A breaker but can only net close to $700 if I decide to cell it. Given its value (80A and bidirectional charging), I think it makes sense to keep it if it is trouble free...
I am used to Tesla one pedal driving and it is pretty smooth. When vehicle stops completely, the brake applies.
Lightning is a great EV, but still need some improvement. When the truck is nearly but not completely stopped, the brake would apply so there would be some hiccup. That's not a big...
Both were charged to 100%, after running ~245 miles, the conclusion:
R1T: 2.46m/kWh, 100kWh used, real world range 315-320 miles.
Lightning: 2.0m/kWh, 123kWh used, real world range 250-255miles.
Lightning uses 20-25% more energy than R1T, probably due its size and box shape.
I did not watch...
“Sales of Ford’s profitable F-Series pickups were off 10.7% through August compared with the prior year. The company has sold 6,842 models of its all-electric F-150 Lightning pickup to date as of Aug. 31, including 2,373 vehicles last month.”
F-150 Lightning’s top three conquests are Ram...
As Silverado EV and Cyvertruck are coming and RAM ev is on the way, Ford must also be busy working on 2nd gen 2025 Lightning. I am interested in your opinio, prediction and wishlist.
I predict it will not be box shaped anymore but rather aerodynamic shaped to increase freeway mileage...
Saw this on FB. According to OP, he saw the truck up on a lift today and was able to see the number. This is for ER battery.
So Ford keeps close to 8% capacity reserved.
Update: We have a number for SR battery: 107.6kWh real capacity.
Alex let his Lightning and R1T sit for 2 weeks and Lightning still shows 100% battery charge but lost about 5 miles, that is about 0.2kWh/day.
Rivian lost 27%, 2.8kWh/day, that is 2500 miles worth of electricity per year.
Rivian R1T electric truck 'way underpriced,' but room to improve, expert says | Automotive News (autonews.com)
But the R1T, which starts at $67,500, "should be selling for $100,000 -- it's way underpriced for what it is and what it does," says Munro during a walkaround of the dismantled...
