Sounds like they did this with a bunch of reviewers and just treated them well.

Love all the electrical outlets. The truck looks really well finished and thought out. It will sell itself.

 

Though $85KUSD price tag with 314 miles of range means it will likely compete more with Land Rovers than F150s.

 

But it is the only electric truck really available now.

Watching this all unfold from the perspective of a "disruptive technology" is so interesting.  I had to learn in school about how it effected society when cars, telephones, computers, etc all arrived.  The fun quotes from people saying things like "there's no roads for cars" or the exec at IBM saying there's only a need for 5 computers.  Also how those all effected existing industries in ways that weren't predicted.

 

It's fun watching this all play out in real time.  When my kids or grandkids learn about this in school I'll have actually lived it...
