LOL, yeah, gravy seems to be a better match than fries.

If a fast charge would finish before I completed a meal at MDs I would not bother to plug in.
As it relates to this thread the vehicles would (hopefully) have 100+ kWh battery.


Lol. Yah good point.

The only place I have seen a fast charger at a McDonald’s was when it was co-located at a group of level 2’s. The fast charger would be handy for out of towners picking up a quick meal.

I would like to see more public level 2 stations in our area for the apartment dwellers etc. Shopping areas, Starbucks, restaurants etc. They are coming but slowly.


When I was working for Unilever, we have such products, while loss leaders, are called traffic builders (bringing in customers).

This is just a new twist to the concept, lol.

In Amsterdam, there are McD's are on the first floor of the pleasure house in the red light district.

So why not? But still my question, is whether that's good with fries.


Dude. Anything is good with fries. Lol. [emoticon]


I should try that some time. I promise.

Will it be before or after?

Pretty short on details? Seriously? I don't think I saw any details. I saw lots of allegedly, reportedly, maybe, perhaps...some examples:

"Details are sparse right now", "Its launch is reportedly only some 2 years away", "The electric Ford F-150 will possibly debut in 2021.", "The truck will allegedly be the Blue Ovals followup EV", "There's no firm timeline in place for the reveal and launch", "We don't know the power figures for the electric F-150", "Range: This remains a complete mystery at this point in time", "Price: This is the biggest unknown".

That was about the biggest no-details story I've read in a long time. Must have been a very slow news day.

Wow, a million ton tow!!!

The lack of details maybe a tease, but it's really an exciting development.

Sub (a little under?) $100,000 vs Tesla's $49,000 with the same capabilities? The waiting list will be at Tesla then, lol.

Yeah, I agree, anything below 300 mile range will be a disappointment if a bonus, a strong competitive advantage, if it goes to 500 miles.

I doubt we will see much over 250 miles on the first iteration. 200 to 250 would be my WAG. More likely less than more at least for the base model.
I speculate F150-EV will just be an around town truck as this is actually the majority of the market.
Long range and reasonable towing range will be long in the future.
JMHO.

The last sentence of that article is most telling: "Or, should Tesla be building an RV to go with its Semi?". Don't they realize that Tesla isn't building semis yet. How can you build something to go with something that isn't even being produced? I guess you just ignore what's real and focus on what you wish would be real.

If TFL towing results with the Tesla are somewhat similar with the Rivan whenever it becomes a reality then their 400 mile range will be around 100 miles towing.
