This Tesla Model Y owner just took delivery of his all-new Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck. However, what’s arguably more important is that he traded in his 2016 F-150 (gas-powered, of course) to get into the new electric version.
While we love a good highly produced YouTube video by a professional automotive reviewer and/or a celebrity-like influencer, this is actually the type of video many new EV owners may be looking for. Why? Because they may be able to more easily relate to it.
E-Hermes runs a personal YouTube channel with less than 1,000 subscribers, and the channel has only been active for about a year and a half. It seems he started the channel to share his Tesla Model Y with the world, though he clearly had grander plans in mind. He writes:
“E-Hermes is dedicated to showing that electric vehicles are just as capable as gasoline powered vehicles to go on any travel adventure anywhere a car or truck can go and to demonstrate its advantages to camping and other outdoor activities. To do this we take our vehicles to fun but remote places in every season.”
While the Model Y can certainly show the capability of EVs, E-Hermes’ new Ford F-150 Lightning provides him with a much more direct comparison of how an electric vehicle compares to a gas-powered vehicle. Honestly, it appears to be the perfect fit considering his channel description above.
In this initial video, E-Hermes outlines the delivery experience as he trades in his gas-powered F-150 to make the transition to electric. He links to his previous video about his Model Y delivery experience so you can see how Ford and Tesla’s processes differ.
