A Youtuber’s “disaster” trying to use Ford’s electric F-150 Lightning electric truck has shed light on how bad EVs really are compared to gas-powered vehicles.

Once again, we find that electric vehicles are simply not ready for the toughest tasks for vehicles.

Per Insider:

In a recent video on his Hoovie’s Garage channel, Tyler Hoover put the towing capability of his Ford F-150 Lightning to the test — and he called the experience a “complete and total disaster.” The saga illustrates one of the challenges to owning a battery-powered truck: towing range.

Hoover charged up his Lightning to 200 miles (almost all of its 230-mile range) and set out for a trip to his mechanic 32 miles away to pick up a 1930 Ford Model A and tow it home. As soon as Hoover set out pulling an empty trailer, the Lightning’s range started “dropping like a stone.”

In the end, the 64-mile journey sucked up 150 miles of range from the Lightning’s battery.

“The truck towing 3,500 pounds can’t even go 100 miles,” the Youtuber said. “That is ridiculously stupid. This truck can’t do normal truck things.”

Electric vehicles are useless.

Don’t buy one. They are an expensive boondoggle.
