Hi Everyone,
I am an avid Electric car Owner, I own a 2013 Chevy Volt and absolutely love it, My wife has owned a Nissan Leaf, and currently owns a Chevy Bolt. Unfortunately, I didn't sign up until July of 2021 so my wait is a ways off but I am excited to own a fully electric truck.

Welcome to the forum @astrong! You've come to the right place for Lightning info! How are the Volt and Bolt treating you and your wife? What convinced you to go with the Lightning?

Thanks,
My Volt has been great, no major issues with it, I was hoping the battery would go bad before 100k so I could get a new battery but no luck :)
I have always wanted an F-150 but could never convince myself that the price of it combined with the cost of gas was worth it.

A $9000 used Nissan Leaf was the gateway drug for our family—now with a Model 3 and hoping for a Iced Blue Silver Pro with 9.6 kw power option. And Holy Cow does no one else think $8k is a lot for a truck these days? I would like the big battery to make cross country camping easier, but arrrgh, hard to justify the outlay. Reservation number 10868698 but no offer to order yet.

Hey @DrBill welcome to the forum! Are you planning on keeping the Model 3 along with your Lightning? Or would you trade it in?

Thanks for the welcome! I can’t imagine ever getting rid of the Model 3–when I am old(ER) and gray(ER) and it only has 50 miles of range, it will still be a great around town car. Wife and I feel the Model 3 and Lightning will be all the vehicles we need.

I like the way you think. I'm very torn as I drive a Model 3 on a daily basis now and I'm afraid I will miss that, it's a great car. However 3 years ago I gave up my F150 for the Model 3. I truly miss the truck, but I truly love the Model 3 on a daily basis, but for me I can't justify keeping both, so I'm hopeful for the thrill of driving the car in a truck form. The good news is that there is still another Model 3 in the house, so we will be in the same boat you are - a Model 3 and a Lightning. The best of both worlds I hope.

You definitely can't go wrong with that. That's a very solid two-car garage.
