The Lightning is the only real truck so far out of Cybrtrk, Rivian, Hummer, Lightning.
I don't know how you define a "real truck", surely F150 Lightning looks like a truck look everyone is accustomed to, but... given its electric drive train, that will be a problem. I mean we've been over this a thousand times, especially with the conversions on this forum - you can't shove EV guts into an ICE vehicle and expect it to perform in all aspects. You can have performance, but you can't have range. Trucks, naturally, have even more problems. Not only the brick-style aerodynamics is bad for your range, but so is the heavy frame intended for hauling heavy stuff both in the bed and behind it.

Cybertruck really is THE ONLY EV truck in the list. Others may lack truckiness, or EVness, but CT is the only one that is expected to combine the two worlds. Sure, it may seem to compromise some of the traditional truckiness, but most of it is either superficial or has workarounds. Those are still very necessary compromises to make for the good EVness.
