Pickup trucks are the most popular form of automotive transportation in America, so it is not surprising that the surging interest in all-electric rides has generated a raft of EV trucks and wannabe trucks. Today, there are only three production EV trucks on our streets, the lifestyle Rivian L1T, crab walking GMC Hummer, and working man’s Ford F150 Lightning. In the wings are pickups from mainstream manufacturers and startups alike who have models that may, or may not, go into production in the next two years.
If we included them all, it would look like a list of brands from the late 19th century when the first horseless carriages replaced the one to four-horsepower buggies with completely new vehicles capable of incredible speed and no poop to pick up. But because most of those brands disappeared after a short run, we will stick to models that appear likely to hit the road, in one form or another, in the next 24 months.
