Picked up my R1T in late March, put roughly 3k miles on it. Calculated that cost/mile is about $0.03 since I got so many fast charging sessions for free and I can charge at my workplace for free. Loving the truck, below are some of the cool pics I got along the way.

First road trip from Austin to west Texas. Maxed the efficiency at 4 mi/kWh coming down some of the mountains. Driver+ basically the whole way. 1000 mile round trip with total charging cost of $15. Got a lot of free sessions from EA by chance. Charged to 100% from home before the trip, put into conserve mode once I hit the highway, 347 miles of range showing.

Did a lot of hauling. Got some road base to fix some spots in my driveway, hauled some 12' lumber, and a bunch of hay for the farm. I also successfully managed to rip off the tailgate cap/cover.... so that sucks.

Love your frunk and gear tunnel inspector (very cute)
What hitch extender are you using for the lumber, as I can see myself needing one of those. And any issues strapping down the lumber so it did not flop around from the front?

Oh yeah, the yellow actually looks pretty good!

Awesome photos. Love Compass Yellow. Such a fun color on the truck and SUV.

No extender. The bed is just long enough to comfortably move 12ft boards. I strapped them together tightly with the orange strap, then pulled the yellow strap tight using a tarp to help consolidate the ends, forcing the boards into the bed. I personally wouldn’t haul longer stuff, though. And 12ft is the mad that felt comfortable for my short trip back from the hardware store.

Great pics, what tires do you have to get that

Great pics, what tires do you have on your R1T to get that mileage? I have 20” AT’s in conserve mode I get 313 miles. I’m envious..😎

These are the standard 21" wheels w/ road tires. So far I have no complaints w/ them.

I love it when someone (like OP) uses their pickup truck like it should be used. Too many pavement queen PU trucks out there, including plenty of Raptors.
Hmm... But I guess Raptors probably weren't designed as work trucks.
