2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: A Range Extender I Can Get Behind
April 11, 2011
Teamed with a rented U-haul car hauler, our 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor has become something of a range extender for electric cars. Last week is was an electric Smart ForTwo, this week it's our own 2011 Nissan Leaf.
The Leaf in question is currently (pun fully and unashamedly intended--that's how I roll) plugged in to my garage. Tomorrow morning I'll unplug it, load it back onto this here rented trailer and head for the test track for its first date with the VBox.
Our Raptor will barely be aware of any of this, of course; 411 horsepower makes this chore a real yawner.
