Range ratings for the F-150 Lightning have been confirmed and some versions can exceed 300 miles. Honda plans to tweak its EVs with some additional wind tunnel work. And is the all-electric excess of the GMC Hummer EV something to denounce or celebrate? This and more, here at Green Car Report.
Ford has confirmed the EPA’s estimated range numbers for the upcoming F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck, and they indicate slightly more range than previously suggested. With an extended battery pack (ER) of 131 kwh, Lightning will provide 320 miles in fleet-focused XLT, Laries and Pro versions. That’s better than the “up to 300 miles” Ford pointed out earlier.
In the transition to electric vehicles, aerodynamics is more important than ever. With that in mind, Honda has announced the opening of a $124 million wind tunnel facility in Ohio that specializes in both aerodynamics and aerodynamics – in the hope of to improve efficiency and reduce wind noise in upcoming EVs.
And do the GMC Hummer EV’s size, weight, and efficiency make you uncomfortable? Considering carbon emissions, lifetime greenhouse gas emissions and other priorities that Green Car Report readers should appreciate, we looked at why Hummer EV is the vehicle we should welcomein spite of all that is superfluous.
