We are finally seeing more and more EV pickups on the roadways across America. They come in all different shapes and sizes, for work, play or both. Automakers old and new are getting into this exciting new segment of the market. The success of these trucks will play a vital role in the transition to electrification.

In the next few years, we will see many more come to market and to a neighborhood near you. These trucks will have a wide range of specs, including high towing capacity, good payload, great range and performance. Some of these will also be a perfect fit for any fleet customers to save on high fuel and maintenance costs. The only issue will be trying to meet the huge demand for EVs in the coming years that automakers have underestimated.

Here’s a preview of some of the most popular electric trucks that are already hitting the road now and soon to come.

Tesla Cybertruck

Price: EST $39,990 – $69,990+

Range: EST 250 – 500+

The Tesla Cybertruck is like nothing the world has ever seen. Its exterior is made out of very hard stainless steel so it will be extremely strong, never rust or dent. The only other vehicle that went into production with a stainless-steel exterior was the famous DeLorean from the Back to the Future movies. This truck comes in 3 different drivetrain variants, rear motor, dual motor and tri-motor, with 0-60 times between 2.9 and 6.5 seconds. Towing capacity ranges from 7,500 and 14,000 lbs with max payload of 3,500 lbs so this is no toy, it can really pull its weight. It has many other features including air suspension, lockable bed storage, room for 6 full adults, “bulletproof” glass, expandable tailgate and many more. Lastly with its access to the supercharger network, you really can go anywhere without issue.

Chevrolet Silverado EV

Price: $39,900-$107,000+

Range: Up to 400 Miles

The Silverado EV is expected to start production later this year (2023) and even though it’s a little late to the party, it still comes with some good specs and features. Standard dual motor AWD, HP 510-754 and Torque around 785 pound ft, towing capacity from 8,000 lbs to 20,000 lbs, max payload of around 1,300 lbs plus a passthrough area that allows the bed to get up to 10 ft of length are just some of its features. The 350kw peak charging capability of its 800v battery pack can charge this beast pretty quick, although the official time is not out yet. Plus this truck will have many other features that are on the Hummer EV.

Dodge RAM Revolution EV

This RAM EV was just announced and should be coming in 2024 but there are still not many details about pricing and range. It does seem that it will be competitive with other EV trucks on the market and it will have features similar to the Lightning and will be able to power your home in the event you lose power. It might even come with an optional gas generator on board, which some customers may be interested in having, while others will prefer a longer range all-electric truck.

Rivian R1T

Price: $73,000-$100,000+

Range: 260-400 Miles (est.)

The R1T has 4 electric motors powering each wheel with over 800 hp and almost 1000lb/ft of torque which can rocket this truck to 60 in 3 seconds. It also can tow up to 11,000lbs. It’s also capable off-road, with over three feet of wading depth. The R1T also includes many cool features like a gear tunnel, big frunk, and options like a small pullout kitchen and a tent that goes on the bed.

GMC Hummer EV

Price: $80,000 – $110,295+

Range: 250-350Miles (est.)

This Hummer EV is huge weighing in over 9,000lbs but what else do you expect, it’s a Hummer. It does come with 1000 HP and all wheel drive which move this beast to 60 in just 3 seconds. Other features include, 4-wheel steering, crabwalk, roof sections that can come off (T-tops), 350KW DC fast charging and many more.

Ford F-150 Lightning

Price: $55,974 – $96,874+

Range: 230-320 Miles (est.)

Ford goes all in on the F150 Lightning and delivers. It can blast to 60 in low to mid 4 second range, tow up to 12,000lbs and power your home when you lose power or power your whole jobsite with its many outlets. It also has a massive frunk that you can even have a tailgate party out of. With a relatively low starting price, it makes it cheaper to buy over many other EV’s. Hopefully Ford can ramp up production as this truck is sold out for a while.

Overall, there is a lot of great stuff happening in the world of electric pickup trucks these days! If you have any questions about any of the EVs mentioned above or about EVs in general, feel free to contact us!
