I have a Lightning Pro scheduled for production in April and have been very much looking forward to it. Recently I have had some reservations about the Lightning as I am a same day Silverado EV reservation. Curious if anyone else here is in the same situation and considering not going through with their Lightning and waiting for the Silverado EV. The primary reason I am considering waiting is that I believe the Silverado EV will have significantly faster charge speeds with the 800v battery vs 400v. I doubt the base model work truck will have the advertised 350kw, but it can't be as low as 150kw given the battery platform. 90% of the time charge speeds are not an issue for me, but I make 275+ mile trips 7-8 times a year and the 45 minute DC fast charge wait time I think would drive me crazy. I am planning on keeping this vehicle for at least 8 years and waiting 1/1.5 years for a truck that will have significantly better charging capabilities seems like the logical thing to do, but deep down I just want to get into an electric truck and the Lightning is within reach.
