My View on Ford Ranger
I changed my mind about electric cars. I also grew to be impressed by it when I was studying in England.
Before I start reading the article, I want to ask my readers a question. Have you ever owned a Ford Ranger original electric pickup truck? I did not. This is because I had an incorrect view of electric vehicles before, due in large part to where I grew up.
In Bangkok, Thailand, where I live, electric cars are not uncommon, perhaps one could say very full of streets. Maybe it's because too many people drive Ford Ranger EVs (ฟอร์ดเรนเจอร์ in Thailand language), and I'm a little bored with them, but I actually don't know much about the Ford Ranger's performance or equipment, I'm just simply tired of looking at it. Because every day I ride my bike past about 1500 Ford Ranger EVs. Yet I must admit that for a number of different people, the Ford Ranger original electric pickup is like a shining star. From 1983 to 2011, Ford gave us an American-made pickup that was compact enough to replace the current full-size pickup in the vehicle industry. Then I changed my mind about electric cars. I also grew to be impressed by it when I was studying in England.
Whenever we talk about The Old Ranger, we dig to find out more about it. Although it's out of production, everything about it hangs in my mind. Ford is arguably the expert at producing all-electric vehicles. I think the Ranger electric car is a really useful, environmentally friendly car that has much more vitality than the electric Chevrolet S-10 made by GM. In general, the Ford Ranger is a little more traditional in design and configuration. It retains the rear-wheel drive of the gasoline-powered model, but has an AC motor and S10-style single-speed transmission mounted behind it. While the entry-level lead-acid battery pack has slightly more capacity at 23 kWh, the engine makes slightly less horsepower than the Chevrolet. All of the batteries are remounted in the middle of the truck under the body and between the frame rails.The backpack weighs 2,000 pounds and the payload capacity drops to 700 pounds.
The Ford Ranger has a range of 50 miles and, like any electric vehicle, its range drops depending on driving and weather conditions. Ford claims that the Ford Ranger charges using a conventional conduction charger, while the S10 uses an on-board induction system, just like the GM EV1 and the first-generation Toyota RAV4 EV. the Ranger can reach a top speed of 75 mph, while the S10 is 70 mph. But buyers can also spend a little more on nickel metal hydroxide batteries, which not only increase the range to 80 miles, but also make the vehicle feel lighter. The weight savings could even allow the Ford Ranger to match the 1,250-pound payload capacity.
The Ford Ranger EV also has a bit of an element of mystery, which is reflected in its audience. Based on the recollections of Ranger EV owner Revolt, the Ford Ranger EV doesn't seem to be aimed at individual consumers. This may be due to the higher price of the Ford Ranger EV compared to other Ford models. That's why government and utility fleet operators are its primary target market. This is all to say that you may see a Ford Ranger EV, but you may not know a specific person who has one.
