The real Tesla Killer
the number 1 vehicle in America goes electric
By: Ricardo   |  Email: ricardo@labest.com

I have been reading about all the car manufacturers and their "Tesla Killer" car. From Audi, Porsche, Lucid, Nissan, etc. all of them have something better, Which it should not be a surprise since the quality of a Tesla is the worst in the industry.  But this week a company that knows, not just how to make great vehicles, but has the numbers to prove their success launch what I consider the most significant Electric Vehicle in America. The new Ford F-150 Lightning.

This pick up is the bestselling vehicle among all segments in the country with over 700,000 units a year. The F-150 has become a luxury car with all the attributes of a working truck. It has been the number 1 pick-up for 44 years in a row. And now with the EV option  there will be no limit.  The Ford Mach-e is interesting, but a Ford truck has a lot more appeal from all demographics. This, I bet, will be the real "Tesla Killer".

The F-150 Lightning is a technology powerhouse. In addition to all the connectivity, luxury trims, nav, etc. it's power plant can be used for power tools and even a home back-up generator. It did not give up any of the payload, towing, or rouged built. And that is very impressive. And this at under $60,000 is even hard to believe.

“The F-150 Lightning is a massive moment for our Ford team. America’s No. 1 auto brand is going zero emissions with America’s favorite vehicle. It’s quicker than a Raptor, with standard 4x4 and independent rear suspension; a power trunk, enough juice to run your house for three days or power an awesome tailgate; and it will forever improve with over-the-air updates,” said Ford President and CEO Jim Farley

Over 40,000 people order one within the first 48hs. I am thinking about it myself.  i will not be surprised at a 100,000 units for its first year.  This truck has made history, in the sense that it offers the best of both worlds. Hey, I am not trying to sell it. Think about it.  A full size truck, a luxury car, an EV , built in Dearborn MI, by FORD, and less than $60,000.
