Owner Review

Fun, Fast, Going Strong

We've put about 1950 miles on the truck in the 2 weeks we've had it. Mainly on one long trip with multiple DCFC stops. Fits our family if 5 very well and the frunk handled all our clothes and more fragile gear well. Wish we would have gotten the tonneau cover from the factory but there are a ton of options available from 3rd parties. Highway manners were great, city driving as well for what it is (a big pickup).  Blue Cruise works amazingly well for hands free driving on the highway. 

It has the aerodynamic properties of a brick so highway range going over 70mph is rough. Roughly a 20% hit when you maintain 75mph. Drop it to 65 and you do significantly better.  I still feel it is acceptable given charging is pretty easy on highways around us. City consumption is way better! Regen works very well also.

Long-term average consumption

Long-term average consumption: 2.4 mi/kWh

    Which battery size (kWh) do you have? How many miles can your F150 get on a single charge in the city and on the highway?
