Any retail sales are just icing on the cake.
    Along with many local businesses, contractors service trucks, eh!

    I think the kicker though is when government mandates itself through "green" initiatives they force themselves into a marketplace with limited options, and there sits Ford with the only practical "green" option so far. Others are sure to follow, but being first to any market is critical, you don't necessarily need to be the best, just the first. Companies will still have conventional proven options from other manufacturers at a lower price for the time being.

    My f150 recharges in 6 minutes on a fast pump even when it needs 30 plus mega gallons or more.

    Congrats on your new truck. I don't see it as virtue signaling at all because you don't seem like the planet saving type.
    Too bad the intro of semi long range E trucks is being targeted at such a limited economic base.
    Having so much tech and features puts them out of reach for many.
    A no frills basic truck for work and commuting would get the public on board much faster if that is the goal of the new world order of things.
    But having a status symbol in the garage will never change.
