Now, let’s dive into some EVs!
“I’d have a Rimac Nevera over the Valkyrie and AMG One.”
In my search for a new electric SUV or truck under $80,000, available now, and within 25 miles of my house, I have narrowed down the choices to the Ford F-150 Lightning and the Tesla Model Y.
The Details. To determine the best option, I will compare them side by side considering factors like exterior color, range, price, seating capacity, storage, drivetrain, and more.
Here’s my comparison:
Tesla Model Y Long Range:
Exterior Color: Red
0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds
Enhanced Autopilot: $6,000
Full Self-Driving: $15,000
Ford F-150 Lightning Pro SuperCrew AWD:
Exterior Color: Gray
0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds
No heated seats
Ten 120V outlets and a 240V outlet
Heated seats are essential in Colorado winters and having at least six seats is necessary for picking up the in-laws at the airport with the whole family. Another huge factor is the additional 80+ miles of range offered by the Model Y.
Considering these factors, I’d choose the Tesla Model Y. While the F-150 Lightning is an excellent truck, the Tesla better suits my needs for a family-oriented EV. What can I say, I like toasty seats in the winter.
This concludes my three-part series on my EV buying process. I hope you’ve found it informative and enjoyable.
