Electric pickup trucks are the next big thing in the automotive industry. Major automakers like Chevrolet and Ford are banking on the success of their first electric trucks to be cornerstones to the electric futures of their respective brands. Automakers will compete to produce the most popular electric truck as the new vehicle segment emerges. Whoever produces the most popular EV truck could potentially dominate in the years to come. Here are the most anticipated electric trucks.
The Tesla Cybertruck is the most anticipated electric truck
The Tesla Cybertruck is Tesla’s first electric truck. The Cybertruck was unveiled in late 2019. Tesla CEO Elon Musk championed the truck for its unique design. It features a cold-rolled steel exterior that would hold up incredibly well in an accident.
The Cybertruck’s futuristic design amazes consumers because there is truly no other truck like it on the market. It doesn’t just include a unique design either. The electric truck boasts specs worthy of Tesla’s first electric pickup. Initially, the Cybertruck was offered in three different trim levels.
The Single Motor RWD trim gets 250+ miles of driving range and can go from 0-60 miles per hour in 6.5 seconds. The Dual Motor AWD gets 300+ miles of range and can go from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. Tesla’s Cybertruck Tri Motor AWD model gets 500+ miles of range and can go from 0-60 miles per hour in an astounding 2.9 seconds.
The Tesla Cybertruck initially ranged from $39,900-$69,900 but Tesla prices often fluctuate. According to LeaseFetcher.co.uk, a car leasing comparison site, the Tesla Cybertruck is the most searched electric pickup truck in America. The EV averages $276,000 monthly searches.
People are excited about the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is Chevrolet’s first electric truck model. General Motors CEO Mary Barra called the Silverado EV “unmatched” and it’s got the specs to prove it. Though there are still many unknowns about the Chevrolet Silverado EV’s lower trim levels, the automaker did show off its RST trim.
The Chevy Silverado EV RST gets a mind-blowing 400+ miles of driving range. It makes 664 horsepower using electric motors. The electric pickup truck has what it takes to be real competition for the Tesla Cybertruck, Ford F-150 Lightning, and other electric trucks. It has an average monthly search volume of 229,000 searches per month. The Silverado EV is the second-most anticipated electric truck.
The Ford F-150 Lightning is the electric work truck America never knew it needed
The Ford F-150 Lightning will be available as a base model, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trim. Prices are expected to range from around $42,000-$70,000. The F-150 Lightning will get 230 miles of estimated range. Long Range battery models will get around 300 miles of range.
Ford’s electric truck features its Mega Power Frunk with power outlets for tools and appliances. It is also available with Pro Power Onboard, a feature that helps the truck double as a backup generator. The Ford F-150 Lightning averages about 81,000 monthly searches in the U.S.
