When someone asks "But show me an EV that can tow a boat to Broome!" Show them this...

Other Production EV's including motorbikes, and cars by smaller manufacturers

I don't normally give a hoot about pick up trucks, but this actually looks bloody impressive.

Starts at US$65k, so $100k here I would guess. Which if you look at the price of a new F-truck... It's not that crazy.

A Tesla or even an outlander with a boat trailer with 150kwh of batteries under the boat will probably do it. And it will also depend on where you are driving from.
As for the electric truck with a kerb weight 2670kg sounds a bit light. Even with Tesla batteries 180kwh will be 1100kg of batteries.

I think the long range one was 3.8 ton.

The specs say:
Trailer Weight Rating (lbs): 5000kg
I'm guessing it actually means 5000lbs, or 2267kg. Even this is a very good towing capacity.
And 330 litres in the froot!
And AC power outlets!

Other websites have 11000lbs as the towing capacity so it may well be 5000kg, which is a very big boat

Really, bigger and bigger trucks, electric or otherwise, are not what the world needs :(
