Total cost of ownership studied


The Ford F-150 is the best-selling truck in the United States and one of the best-selling vehicles of all time. The Tesla Cybertruck may or may not really compete with the Ford. The Tesla will perform well and be incredibly durable, which may appeal to some truck owners. However, it is very different from any vehicle on the market today, and it will not compete with today’s pickup trucks when it comes to interior luxury.Nonetheless, the Charging Forward YouTube channel was interested in the real cost of the Cybertruck. What better way to see it than to compare it to a current pickup truck? We’re more interested in how Ford will price its next electric pickup, but we’ll likely wait a long time before that information becomes available.

According to Tesla, the Cybertruck will start at $ 39,900, although that version likely won’t hit the market long after the truck’s launch. It will also be a simpler version with less autonomy. So this video focuses on the $ 49,900 version with 300 miles of range. There will also be a $ 69,900 Cybertruck, which we assume is the only one option available at launch.

The Ford F-150 starts at $ 28,745. Choose the high end version and tick all the boxes and you could spend over $ 70,000 on this Ford. To compare the cost of ownership over six years of these pickup trucks, the video examines fuel / electrical, maintenance and tires. The information is based on driving 10,000 miles per year, although there is a quick glimpse of how the numbers change if you travel 20,000 miles per year.

Of course, with a comparison like this, details are missing. This is all the more true as the Cybertruck is not even available yet. Still, it gives us an idea of ​​the cost of owning an electric vehicle compared to a gasoline car. Watch the video and leave a comment below.
