The Kia EV6 is one of the top-rated EVs for reliability. Toyota is working on a utility to test EV bidirectional charging. And we see the Ford F-150 Lightning as the ultimate car to buy—and see its price go up by thousands. This and more, here at Green Car Report.
The Ford F-150 Lightning revolutionizes the pickup truck—making it fully electric, adding functionality the truck set will appreciate, and otherwise not making too much of a fuss. Its runaway demand already proves that Ford is on to something, and it easily deserves its spot as a 2023 Best Car to Buy finalist by Green Car Report.
That said, Ford has once again raised the price of the F-150 Lightning. This time the price of the base Lightning Pro, with the standard range battery good for 240 miles, stands at $57,869 – about 40% higher than earlier this year. This leads us to wonder if these trucks still serve as an exciting entry point for Ford Pro Fleet Services.
Toyota has partnered with a Texas utility to launch a small pilot project where it will study vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology to smooth out the grid. Although Toyota is already studying the use of hydrogen fuel cells for such a role, this is its first US test with a battery electric vehicle.
According to the latest data from Consumer Reports, Tesla and Nissan lead in EV reliability. The consumer agency ranked the Kia EV6, Tesla Model 3, and Nissan Leaf among the most reliable—though it still noted that hybrid vehicles outperform EVs in terms of reliability.
