Ford 3.5 Powerboost Hybrid

I did a build and price on the F150 platinum loaded with the 3.5 powerboost hybrid. EPA 27 mpg. That's a gas truck with a 41 hp electric motor and 1.5 kw battery (compared to 99 kw on lightning SR) total horsepower is 430 /570 torque.
This truck is $81,465 build & price.

Clearly a different truck than lighting but I think it's an often overlooked option. Especially for those long haulers, road trippers.

Question I didn't really find in articles is about the electric powertrain.
This is a plug in to charge correct, no?
What happens when the battery is expended less mpg and less hp?
Can short trips be run on electric only? Maybe not with such a small electric motor?

I think this powertrain is the future of ice vehicles. And it's only a $2500 upcharge where you're also getting more hp and a portable generator.
