Take that, Elon Musk!  Ford F-150 Lightning gives Tesla Model 3 a boost

There are currently more than 46,000 public charging stations for electric vehicles in the United States, with a total of more than 115,000 individual charging outlets (EVSEs), according to the Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuel Data Center.

Tesla Elon Musk TSLA, however, operates 16,103 Superchargers in 1,826 stations worldwide; It includes 908 stations in the United States, 98 in Canada, 16 in Mexico, 520 in Europe, and 398 in the Asia/Pacific region.

But, Ford Motor Company F Offers Tesla (and other electric vehicles) with an additional 4,469 charging stations.

More Musk news: Is Elon Musk joking? Why is Manchester United’s stock rising today?

How? Each of the 4,469 electric-powered F-150 Lightning trucks sold so far can charge a Tesla.

what happened: Twitter Inc TWTR TravelTeslaDad user TravelTeslaDad posted a video on the microblogging platform showing a new F-150 Lightning with Pro Power Onboard using “Sharing Range” to give the Tesla Model 3 some power at 7 kWh.

Ford’s optional Pro Power Onboard Generator has built-in electrical outlets for power tools, electronics, and appliances. It will also charge other electric vehicles using its “Range Sharing” feature.

why does it matter: For example, the Mustang Mach-E’s range can offer a range of 20 miles per hour on a charge. Even if this is not much, it will be enough to get a stuck car to safety. Equipped with a long-range battery, the F-150 Lightning can power a home for up to three days.

Tesla’s long-awaited Cybertruck will rival Ford’s F-150 Lightning when production and deliveries begin. Musk says the final Tesla Cybertruck design is “finally closed,” and has updated the production schedule for mid-2023.
