"The hybrid truck can also do this in the Limited trim, but power generation caps out at 7.2 kWh of power compared to the Lightning’s 131 kWh. Standard gas models can be equipped with 2.0 kWh or 2.4 kWh, depending on trim and engine."

Quality journalism as I know we've all come to expect from Wired over the years.

That's amazing! Most Kessels need at least 40 parsecs to break into a gallop...

When I read negative comments about EVs I get a sense that the writers of these comments have a deep fear of someone coming to take their gas.

Partly and change is difficult. Also, the charging infrastructure is still not overly robust nor, if robust, quick.

Although not the best written article, the author is pretty positive about the truck. The few complaints he has are valid and talked about often on these boards. Definitely not an 'anti-ev' review.

The first response in comments was so classic, that it should be entombed in the annals of time.

But yes... poorly researched. Pricing of HIS... lol.
Like my grandmother said about TV "Who needs radio with pictures?"
BTW, She was born when horses or foot were how most people moved around and watch men land on the moon and called cars "Machines" (1885 - 1989)

I should have been more specific. I wasn't referring to the article, I meant comments made in the comment section.

I'm in Texas. Most of the Aggies still haven't given up on a horse and buckboard comeback. That's just judged by the speed Aggie truck owners tend to drive...
