  2. Tow Technology Package and resale value

    Yes and they've described that the system will have a way to input the shape of the trailer to further improve range estimates.
  3. Ford, GM Are All-In On EVs. Here’s How Their Dealers Feel About It

    Nothing new there. Many states already have programs to strongly encourage charging at night when demand is low.
  4. Lightning bigger than my garage!

    Charging a Mach E on 110v takes about 96 hours. The Lightning will have a battery about twice that size, so double the time -- roughly 8 days.
  5. Lightning bigger than my garage!

    Yes, as long as you have access to a DCFC for those times you need to drive farther. The problem is if you come home near empty. With my Leaf, our 24A charger not only can cover our daily driving but can easily recharge an empty 30kWh battery over night (5.5 hours to full). With our Mach E, I...
  6. Ford, GM Are All-In On EVs. Here’s How Their Dealers Feel About It

    Absolutely. Coal plants are being replaced by either gas or renewable generation at a rapid pace across the US, so the CO2 emissions will only go down from where they are today. Even states that burn coal now gain tremendous advantages by switching to RVs because of the reduction in ground-level...
  7. Lightning bigger than my garage!

    True. On a 110v circuit you can fully charge a Lightning in a bit over a week.
  8. Preliminary 2022 Lightning Custom Price Tool

    I don't find it that annoying most of the time but definitely am looking forward to the Blue Cruise update on my Mach E for long drives. With that update scheduled for Q3 of this year, we'll have lots of folks (including me) trying it out on Mach Es before Lightning ordering starts.

    The Tech Specs are the most reliable information we have so far.
  10. Lithium EV vs Up coming Solid State EV

    I plug in my Mach E a couple of times a week. I'm getting about the same range on my Mach E as you are.
  11. What cars do you have now?

    My main driver is now a 2021 Mustang Mach E. My wife primarily drives our 2016 Nissan Leaf. That reduces the amount of gas we burn to those times that I need my truck, a 2003 Toyota Tacoma the Lightning will replace. Once our truck is electrified we'll get rid of the Leaf as well.
  12. Tow Technology Package and resale value

    That's basically all a Max Tow package is on an ICE truck as well. Those systems usually include a second radiator used to keep the transmission cool during towing along with some other handy towing features.
  13. Lithium EV vs Up coming Solid State EV

    I think the reason the Platinum gets the asterisk is because it is the only trim with the Extended Range battery. It is unlikely any sort of enhanced cooling will impact range. What it could definitely impact is the charging curve. I suspect the enhanced cooling may improve the ability to cool...

    Or instead of that bulky lever, use the same shift dial the Mach E and other recent model Mustangs use. It's all shift by wire anyway, right? That way you wouldn't need a silly motorized system to stow it away.
  17. Ford F-150 Lightning: 85-mpg gasoline vehicle footprint, will keep getting cleaner with the grid

    We have too many big, old trees to install solar on our house, so we purchase: ~70% of our electricity from a local community solar farm on a retired landfill ~30% (the rest) from a regional (Mid-Atlantic states) wind producer

    I don't even know if you could put PPF over that patterned front end to protect it.
  19. Hero Card For 2022 F-150 Lightning

    Many large solar installations now are priced out as solar + storage. Various storage systems are being implemented in operational settings. Most use batteries, some used pumped water storage, others are using more esoteric storage systems. Here's one recent example. Google solar plus storage...
