After some early jitters, the auto community is finally opening up to electric vehicles, and the gradual shift in the automotive industry is hard to ignore. As a result, many automakers are finally coming out with electric pickup trucks, a segment that was otherwise known to accept nothing but the brute power of gas and diesel powered engines. But as they say, change is inevitable. While it could be some time before these high tech machines are available in online auctions featuring salvage title trucks for sale, on a lucky day, you can get your hands on a suitable deal. On that note, let’s take a look at the top electric pickup trucks from 2022.
Ford F-150 Lightning
If you have been a fan of the iconic F Series, you may or may not fall in love with the F-150 Lightning. A bold take on the F-150 by Ford, the F-150 Lightning is a package full of surprises, which gives you enough to write home about. Despite having accents of futuristic styling and leading-edge tech, the F-150 Lightning retains the same appeal and reliability associated with the legendary F-150.
GMC Hummer EV
Thanks to GMC’s efforts, the good-old Hummer is back for another run, and its new avatar seems more impressive than ever. Unlike the original Hummer which was often criticized for being a gas guzzler, its electric avatar, the GMC Hummer EV, gives you nothing to complain about. Besides sporting pretty impressive styling, the truck pushes the boundaries on the performance front too, with its Ultium batteries offering up to 1,000 horsepower.
After a lot of buzz and a rather imperfect launch event, the Tesla Cybertruck hasn’t entered production yet, and its availability is yet to be decided by the manufacturer. That said, the electric pickup truck, with its futuristic styling and the expertise of the manufacturer, could be well worth the wait. Although it’s not really a conventional pickup truck, if the rumor mills are anything to go by, there could be some major changes to it before it enters production.
Whether we like it or not, the shift from compression engines to electric motors is already in motion and it goes without saying that there will come a time when they’ll dethrone their predecessors. If you’re looking to buy an electric pickup truck but are intimidated by their fat price tags, you have come to the right place.
