    President Joe Biden already test drove the new(still wrapped) Ford electric truck before it’s unveiling tomorrow. Rachael Maddow interviewed the chief engineer, Linda Zhang, of the F-150 E. Rachael stated the acceptance of the F-150 electric truck as capable in all categories as normal reciprocating trucks may be the greatest moment of acceptance of electrics in our motorized society. Rachael showed a video taken (a year ago?) with 42 F-150s lined up in one line next to 11(?) railroad cars. They hooked up the F-150E to all the train cars & pulled all of them with the E-truck! Then they loaded all trucks next to the rail cars, onto the rail cars, the total rail cars & trucks weighing 1 million pounds…..& pulled the whole kit&caboddle along on the tracks!
    Well….tomorrow we’ll see how the acceptance(or not) will start.

    That "endorsement" may turn off a lot of prospective buyers. But I'm sure Ford knows what they are doing.
    Just like when they announced they were going to quit selling "cars" in North America. Smirk.

    President Joe Biden’s endorsement will get larger segments of society buying the electric F-150. I don’t like trucks, but President Biden’s endorsement put the electric Ford as my GOTO truck....& that includes Tesla’s CyberTruck.
