  1. Lightning On Tour

    Just for reference 50k mach-e is like making 15-25k f150 due to the added battery size which is the main limitation here.
  2. Atlas Blue F-150 Lightning Pics From Irvine Spectrum, CA

    No photos I see of an ICE SuperCrew suggests the elevated rear cab floor is any different in the EV version. Here is another clear shot of an ICE F150 SuperCrew Same Elevated rear cab.
  3. Atlas Blue F-150 Lightning Pics From Irvine Spectrum, CA

    I don't think the floorpan is any higher than an ICE f150, Assuming we're talking about the same thing. All photos I see of the F150 SuperCrew have that "raised" look. It does appear that the non-SuperCrew F150 do have "flatter" floors. Lightning: ICE:
  4. Choosing your dealer

    For those in, near Sacramento, CA I got the following response from Harrold Ford about my order and ADM: We do not know what the specific market adjustment is going to be on our Lightnings until we know how many we are going to be allocated. They will be sold for over MSRP we do expect due to...
  5. do i need bigger battery upgrade if only using 1 or twice a year of long road trips?

    Yah, I noticed that -- my CYA was to say you could see 15 minutes better on my times :)
  6. do i need bigger battery upgrade if only using 1 or twice a year of long road trips?

    This really comes down to tolerance for charging times for your road trips. Load up https://abetterrouteplanner.com/ and put in some of your road trips and see how long the charging times are. This isn't "exact" but it's a good enough estimate based on the current known specs. Ex: the 230...
  7. Lightning Efficiency - MPGe?

    Rivian and f150 have very similar ground clearance while driving. Rivian just has an option for more while off roading (and gets even lower when you park) F150 will certainly get worse efficiency than rivian, but not much more ( both are big and inefficient, but that's a truck). The f150 shape...
  8. Towing Range / better hauling range with the ER battery

    Extended range is really just going to handle towing better because it has more range. The standard range has similar horsepower of a ICE F150... The extended range just gives you more. Want to make the Standard Range a little better at the demands of very heavy towing -- get the towing package...
  9. What Questions Do You Have? (I'm attending the Event tomorrow.)

    I think a lot of these questions are likely too much for the sales reps there :) There wouldn't be any reason the home charger would have CCS -- it's not used unless it's a DC charge. If you wanted to go over 80AMP then, you'd have to bring in DC somehow as 80AMp is the max rate of a level 2...
  10. The Alpha WOLF™ Electric Truck

    I'm surprised topgear looked at this.. All information I can see from Alpha Wolf suggest some type of scam. https://www.autoevolution.com/news/alpha-motor-corporation-used-baristas-to-introduce-wolf-electric-truck-mockup-168280.html "In the video (embedded to this article), they talk about...
  11. Video look at F-150 Lightning rolling chassis & frame, batteries, motors, suspension, frunk, etc.

    This has been surprising solid content for someone who eats up every bit of F150 info and knows "everything" :) One thing he notes is about the battery: 4 bolts holding the battery pack in place. Can Individually replace specific cells in battery pack I've never heard anyone say this before...

  13. Gonna wait for 2nd generation

    Definitely an issue for people who regularly haul stuff. As a hobbyist woodworker, the rivian is more of an ideal truck size, and it's wide enough to fit a sheet of plywood flat in the bed with tailgate down it's not a lot of overhang.
  14. Gonna wait for 2nd generation

    I decided to just get the pro @ 40k, it's a great deal now and will likely still be a solid Truck the future if you don't need the extra range which I don't. The higher the trim, the worse the f150 lightning looks to me. The truck gets too expensive for the features, especially the 150kw...
  15. Extended Range & Trims

    I am expecting the f150 to get it's epa ratings and no more... Unless you are just city driving or going sub 60 on freeway ( no towing) mach-e over performs at speed, it's a realtively aero and light weight car. By default it has better physics going for it. The f150 is basically a large...
  16. Pro-Trim Questions...

    That's exactly what they are doing, and it's pretty common across all cars and trims :) The Pro model was stripped down and built for Fleets and to lure people in with the 40K starting price. Im personally just accepting the Pro as is b/c at 39K it's an incredible value... As you go up in...
  17. Do I need to run new 400 amp service in my house for the Lightning + everything else?

    Unlikely you'd actually have concerns w/ a 200 amp service, unless you are charging in the middle of the day while running AC, running a electric pool pump, running your electric dryer, running your electric stove, etc..... If you plan on charging at night, it would be rare to have a constant...
  18. "EVs require less maintenance" … oh really … : )

    I've had my E-golf for 2 years. I've spent $80 in for maintenance for my 10K service ( I have heard people paying up to $200 (getting ripped off) for the same service). It seems like these are likely just "bad" luck circumstances for the most part that are referenced in this video. Most things...
