During real world research it has been found the the 300 mile range advertised for the EV truck is diminished to 80-150 miles when towing a mere 1200 lb. load (Which is what my trucks do 80 % of the time). Don't believe everything these manufacturers are telling you as it's only the high points they are selling you so they can sell vehicles.

Charging times are exaggerated as to speed and miles you get per fast charging. If the EV only gets 250 miles per FULL charge, I would seriously doubt that 15 min fast charge will get you to a full charge. The technology and battery systems just aren't up to the task YET, but they may be better in the future, say 10-20 more years down the road.
