Suppose your only experience in an electric vehicle is eighteen holes at the local golf course. In that case, you may be wondering how anything powered by an electric motor could ever be viable as a commercial car, much less a full-size pickup truck. Welcome to the new world of electromagnetic engineering, battery chemistry, inverters, converters, and a dozen other EV powertrain components that make up the first wave of pickups that can blow the socks off a Mustang GT and tow nearly double what a RAM 1500 can.
We are entering an age of electrification that offers spectacular capabilities and may redefine what a pickup truck is. Sure, we will still use trucks to haul and tow stuff. Still, EVs can export their electric fuel to other things like power tools, automatic onboard air compressors, microwave stoves (goodbye hot dogs over an open fire, hello Hot Pockets), or even your house during a power outage. But for right now, let's forget about all-wheel steering, crab walking, and packing your own camp kitchen complete with a kitchen sink, and focus on capabilities and specs we are familiar with.
