Fully Electric Ranger

I was watching the news the other day and there was a man who converted his ranger to becoming full electric. His engine bay had 4 batteries and there were, if i remember right, about 14 other batteires under his bed. Has anyone else seen this? I wanted to learn a bit more about it if i could

Yea i've seen a few EV rangers around in the past couple years. They sure are worth alot of money, whenever they have come up on ebay, they seem to run just under 20k

It works for some people and some people it doesn't or they refuse to change their lifestyle or habits to drive one. Driving a hybrid is even different compared to a standard ICE engine. This difference if furthered when driving a fully EV. It has indicators to show charge left and it doesn't just shut off, it losses the umph and then dies. Plus if you have a cool job you can plug it in at work and not pay for the electric.
