The EV market has a slew of exciting pickup trucks on the horizon. Established automakers and start-ups are both bringing green pickups to the streets. The biggest hesitation car shoppers have when considering an EV is range anxiety. Which electric truck won’t leave owners worried about running out of juice?
Cybertruck gets a lot of attention, but how does it rank?
Tesla’s Cybertruck has been garnering attention since it was first revealed in 2019. Its bizarre appearance and incredible stats made it a topic of constant conversation in the automotive world. Cybertruck boasts armored glass and 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel panels. With towing capacities starting at 7,500 pounds, this is one of the most rugged trucks on the market.
A massive 17-inch infotainment screen gives the spacey cybertruck an even more futuristic feel. The single motor RWD Cybertruck has an estimated 250 miles of range. It goes from zero to 60 mph in less than 6.5 seconds. This electric pickup truck tops out at 110 miles per hour.
GM and Ford are neck and neck
The upcoming electric Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado were built to play a spec cat and mouse game. Both trucks have strengths and weaknesses, but each pulls ahead in its own winning categories. The Ford F-150 has a range of 300 miles. It’s likely the Silverado will fall in this range as well.
The two trucks will likely be priced in direct competition with each other. The electric F-150 has a maximum towing capacity of 12,700 pounds. Chevy hasn’t released the numbers for the Silverado yet but buyers can expect the two models to remain competitive.
Rivan gives Tesla stiff competition
Rivan’s upcoming R1 is an impressive powerhouse. It accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 3 seconds. Smaller battery Rivan R1s will have a range up to 300 miles per full charge. The R1 features an all-new 15.3-inch digital instrument cluster. A 12.3-inch infotainment system offers features like climate and radio control.
An exciting startup may have them all beat
Atlis Motor Vehicles is an exciting EV startup that’s shaking up the pickup truck game. Unlike traditional automakers, Atlis will not be releasing its XT pickup truck with packages or trim levels. Instead, the truck is offered a la carte with fully customizable specs.
The XT boasts a range of more than 500 miles. This puts it on par with the Cybertruck. The two trucks are similar in price as well. The Atlis XT starts at $45,000. Tesla’s midrange Cybertruck will set drivers back about the same. The XT has an edge with drivers who want a fully customizable truck.
The Bolinger B2’s motors supply 614 hp. This all-electric truck has a traveling range of 20 miles per full battery charge. What sets the B2 apart is its unique exterior. It looks like a primitive military vehicle but features removable and foldable body panels giving drivers unprecedented flexibility.
The B2 accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. It may have a lower range than most of its competitors, but it is quick. The B2 tops out at 100 mph and has a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds.
