I've been watching the promos for this new Ford Lightning F150, for you guys know a lot more about EV, what do you think about it?

I'm no expert on EV's but I think the Lighting is a HUGE step towards making them even more commonplace. There aren't many vehicles more ubiquitous than a Ford truck. And if the Lightnings are manufactured in a way that's remotely similar to typical Ford manufacturing practices, it's probably going to bring the prices down on all EV's.

Name is completely sacrilegious, IMO. Zero interest from me for that reason, petty I know.

Great design but agree with IoN6 about the name :) could invent something much better. At the same time it will be interesting to see the first tests of Ford Lightning.

The old square body ferd lightening was the sports car of trucks back in the way back. It seems only fitting to bring the name back with the EV.

I think the name is actually fitting on this truck, Lightning...electricity... The electric Mustang now that certainly is sacrilege.
