Electric Ranger on Ebay!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2000-...QQcmdZViewItem


I thought Ford took them all back. Interesting truck if you want one for commuting I guess.

Wow 60miles range... thats redictulous. It should at least be 100 to be useful
(expected range is 50-70 with NEW according to them)
and those are 6 year old batteries...

And they say to only drive 35-40miles daily to maximize battery life.. blah

Yeah i couldn't get back and forth to work on that. Its like 35 miles to work one way. It was a good idea but it is just not practical.

For my Dad that would be perfect, since he only commutes a around 6 miles round trip.

I could see a car museum picking up something like that, at least as an early example of an alternate fuel vehicle from the 1990s.

I'd buy it if it was 2K or less, It is nothing more to me than a novelty. I like oddball vehicles, and it would be neat to have in my collection, but as a driver what a waste of money. And it has been proven that the coal exhasut put in the air that results from the extra Electricity Generation required to have that thing replace a normal vehicle if more pollutants in the air than a normal four cylinder vehicle running the same distance.

How mant of these did Ford make and why did they take them back? The range is way to low for it. I remember seeing them on a TV show right before the came out, but other than that I have never seen one.
