Pickup trucks are more popular than they’ve ever been. They’re also more capable, comfortable, and expensive. You can now walk out and buy a full-size hybrid pickup truck, trucks with massaging seats, and heavy-duty trucks that can tow heavier loads than most people will ever need.
Soon, though, we’ll see something completely different. Electric pickup trucks are coming, but don’t worry. The first crop of electric trucks will still be every bit as capable as your old gas or diesel truck – even more so in many cases.
There are plenty of reasons to be excited about electric pickups, but it can be hard to figure out which models will show up and when. EV pickups will start hitting driveways across the country in 2021, and the market will expand quickly from there, as large automakers jump into the electric truck game with both feet.
