The F150 is the best selling vehicle in america year after year. What vehicle would benefit most from loads of torque and high efficiency from an electric drivetrain? A truck of course. If anyone from Tesla is reading this, please build a truck. I would buy one in a heartbeat. Also, besides the fact that the higher ground clearance of a truck would minimize the highway debris problem, the beefier suspension might make it worthwhile to develop a double deck battery system whereby the truck could have a single 85kwh battery for short commutes to minimize weight and maximize efficiency and stop at a swap station to pick up and extra 85kwh battery for longer hauls and if a boat or trailer is being towed.
If a Tesla truck gets built, Ford and GMC will be put on notice for last time.
