The Ford F-150 Lightning Pro is a better deal than a Tesla Powerwall! See all electric vehicles listed on AutoTempest: 🤍🤍autotempest.com/results?fuel=electric&utm_source=engineeringexplained&utm_medium=youtube&utm_campaign=engineeringexplained2021&utm_content=wallbox Sponsored By AutoTempest: 🤍🤍autotempest.com/?utm_source=engineeringexplained&utm_medium=youtube&utm_campaign=engineeringexplained%202021&utm_content=wallbox The Ford F-150 Lightning can serve as a backup energy source for powering your home, what Ford's calling "Ford Intelligent Backup Power." This means you can use the F-150's 98 kWh, or the extended battery pack's 131 kWh, to power the devices in your home when your local power utilities aren't working. It's a huge benefit of having an electric vehicle, and surprisingly, it's priced cheaper (per kWh) than a Tesla Powerwall. We'll analyze Ford's solution, Tesla solar, propane home generators, and devices like Wallbox that will eventually offer Vehicle-to-Home charging. Props to Ford for creating a very useful, clever solution to a real problem. If you could power your home with any EV, which would you choose?

Im not buying an electric vehicle unless im forced too or get rich; but i will say the ford lightning is one that interests me. I dont use a truck a whole lot and never drive too far and really like the idea being able too supply electricity too my house during sn emergency without having too buy a suprr big few thousand dollar generator that never gets used. This truck is definently not a wadte of money.
I don’t think you’re a Tesla car is saving the planet by any stretch of the imagination
Yeah but you’re worried about carbon emissions I think you forget the fact that carbon emissions and gasoline is part of the cycle of the environment batteries in the plastic and all this lightweight materials for these cars and that UV is not environmentally friendly so I disagreed with you wholeheartedly I’m not an EpiPen and I think it’s just another place to grab money from consumers
But answer me does it make sense to cut down a forest of trees to put a solar farm and not to mention the fact that you’re disrupting the ecosystem which is detrimental in the long-term to human civilization.
Show Timmy the battery is more detrimental to the environment than people let you believe
Where is the fuel that you use for the generator once it’s burned off it’s going in the trees I consume the carbon dioxide but now when you decide to cut all the trees down to put solar panel farms know you don’t have a combined Darkside suckers
Nobody mentions to fax it how much energy it’ll cost you recycle the batteries
But I think you’re forgetting how much effort is going to be in getting rid of the solar panels once they have reached the end of their usage life.
Damn I'm jealous at how cheap The F150 is in the states. The F150 lightning starts at like 68k here in Canada for the most base model.
ATAFIoXTEe8&t=3m33s 3:33 its all fun and games getting the dollar per kwh but the dollar per mile of range should also be given to give people a better idea what they’re really getting. I get it its a truck and it can do more but a lot of people will use it “just as a car” 95% of all riden miles.
I believe the truck isn’t just priced good but the batterie pack poorly also.
When you can’t watch tv even you’re parents aren’t at home because they took the truck
What can damage solar battery?
I have a video request. Could you do a video explaining how towing affects the range of EV's more than gas or diesel powered vehicles (if that is the case)?
ATAFIoXTEe8&t=6m20s 6:20 Two garage motors, and a rail going away from the main door? Is there a rear garage door behind the truck and to the right out of sight? Or is there some sort of need or benefit to having a setup that I've never seen before?
“You can do all the truck things, with a truck.”
-EE, out of context, 2022
Bro you said it yourself, you use 20 kWh per day. Why are you looking at a generator that makes 20kW... Or 480 kWh per day?
