Currently there are several electric vehicles on the market, including the Ford F-150 Lightning, GMC Hummer EV and Rivian R1T. Each of these vehicles is powerful, efficient and safe, and they can be found in a variety of models. But which one is the best? Here are a few factors you should consider.
GMC Hummer EV
Whether you’re looking for a large SUV, a pickup truck, or a high-performance EV, the GMC Hummer EV is definitely a top contender. It has some cool features and the ability to reach 60 miles per hour in three seconds.
One of the biggest differences between the Hummer EV and other high-performance EVs is that the Hummer EV is built on a body-frame-integrated platform. That means the battery pack is part of the chassis and the battery itself is protected by stout rails along the sides.
The Hummer EV has three motors, each of which contributes to a total of 1,000 horsepower. The front two motors work in tandem with the rear motors to provide more torque and a better power-to-weight ratio.
Ford F-150 Lightning
Despite the fact that it’s a pickup, the Ford F-150 Lightning is one of the best electric vehicles out there. It has the ability to replace your own battery at home, and it can supply three days worth of power to a typical household.
The EPA says that you can drive 230 miles with a base battery, while the extended version gets you 320 miles. It is a lot of fun to drive and has enough horsepower for passing in the freeway.
The Ford F-150 Lightning comes in four trim levels: base, XLT, Platinum, and Pro. Each has its own unique features. Depending on the model, you get a 12-inch touchscreen, heated seats, a power tailgate, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. The base model starts at $46,974. The top-of-the-line Platinum model costs $96,874.
Designed as an all-electric pickup truck, the Rivian R1T is a four-door pickup that’s a bit different than other full-size trucks. It has a unique body-on-frame design, quad-motor AWD, and upgradable hardware. It can reach 60 mph in only three seconds and can tow up to 11,000 pounds.
Rivian’s R1T has a large under-bed storage compartment. It has a removable spare tire. It also has a shuttle sled system, which makes it easy to store gear. This system also allows for easy access to the gear in the bed.
The R1T’s quad-motor AWD system adjusts torque to the wheels according to the situation. It also has a one-pedal regenerative braking feature that eliminates the need for a brake-based hill-descent control feature. The system sends torque to the right wheel at the right time, which provides a strong sense of control on steeper parts of the trail.
Toyota electric truck
Earlier this year, Toyota debuted a new hydrogen fuel cell Class 8 electric truck. The new vehicle improves the fuel economy of its predecessor to 300 miles per fill.
Toyota also recently announced plans to build an electric pickup truck as part of its electrification strategy. It isn’t clear whether the new vehicle will be an all-electric version of the popular Tacoma or a hybrid, but it’s clear that the company is taking a hard look at this segment.
It appears that the new truck is not as big as the Chevy Silverado 1500 or Ford F-150, but it is still massive enough to catch the eye. Its styling elements are similar to the new Tundra, with vertical air intakes, blacked-out A-pillars, and pronounced fender flares.
GMC Sierra Denali EV Edition 1
Designed for GMC fans who want to switch from combustion to electric, the GMC Sierra Denali EV Edition 1 is a new truck that can travel from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds. It also has a range of 400 miles on a single charge. The truck also has an integrated five-foot cargo bed. It also has off-board charging capabilities. It’s a hybrid-electric vehicle, so it can be used as a backup power source for your home. It also comes with a locking weatherproof tonneau cover.
Its battery pack is rated at 212 kWh of usable energy. The truck will also have a fast charging module, which will allow users to add 100 miles of range in only 10 minutes.
Tata electric vehicles
Among the leading companies, Tata Motors’ passenger vehicle division is the front runner in the electric vehicle segment in India. In fact, the company has sold over 19,000 electric cars in the past year. Tata also has joint venture assembly operations in Bangladesh, Ukraine, and Russia.
Tata Motors recently showcased India’s first commercial electric truck. The company is pursuing a strategy to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels. It is also exploring hydrogen as a fuel.
In February this year, the Indian government announced a national green hydrogen policy. It aims to boost domestic production of green hydrogen to five million tonnes by 2030.
