    Default Just like this, but electric

    How much will an electric farm truck cost?

    maybe under $20 grand. Would be nice.

    No points for style.

    Farm trucks seem pretty obsolete up here. The UTV seems to have replaced it.

    Don’t expect much, and you won’t be disappointed…

    despite bluedog's protestations i like the style of an older pickup converted to electric 'farm truck'

    about $8 to $10K for a streetable usable conversion

    pickups happen to be easy conversions because there is lots of accessible room for motor and batteries
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I like the original. The new one could use some help.

    "In a recent press release, Ford has unveiled a unique concept vehicle that consists of a 1978 F-100 pickup electrified using Ford Performance’s Eluminator electric crate motors. That’s the same motor in Ford’s 2021 Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition.

    The $3,900 electric motor is now available to the public, should any EV enthusiasts with the proper conversion knowledge want to create a custom vehicle of their own. Although, you’ll still need to acquire an inverter, battery pack, and control system. "

    https://electrek.co/2021/11/03/ford-...f-100-concept/

    So with a starting point of $3900 you have to decide how far/fast you want to go and batteries are still on the expensive side. After adding in all the other stuff? I go with $10,000 easy. A lot more if it isn't DIY. It would be a very cool project.

    You know about these?

    At $2k each you could buy a fleet of them for less than the one in the OP.
