I'm currently driving a 2021 F150 Hybrid. The setup is perfect, and I've been getting ~26mpg now that the weather is warmer (vs. the expected 24 EPA). I've had 3 Teslas in the past, as well as a Volvo XC90 PHEV.

Our 12.2kW solar array with 18kWh battery backup gets commissioned this week, so I'm ready to get back into the EV world.

Ditched Teslas because the service model in Western Maine is non-existent. Ditched the Volvo because, even as a 3 row SUV, it still didn't feel big enough for me, the wife, the 2 yr old, the 30lb Beagle, 70lb Coonhound, and all of our stuff on trips from Maine to central Virginia.

Really happy with the Ford, and I'd love to move into a 2023 Lightning, BUT........I'm hoping they improve the charging speed in year 2. The 770 mile trip to VA is already 12+ hours in the hybrid (that only needs one fuel stop). from experience, 150kW charging speed isn't all that fast for a 135kWh pack.

Fingers crossed that Ford upgrades that for 2023.

I get what you're saying. I'm driving up to Pemadumcook from Maryland in August. Debating if I should add 3+ more hours to the trip (750 miles) or suck up the gas prices and load up the 2018 Outback.
