2001 Ford Ranger factory EV Electric Vehicle pickup offered for sale.  The pickup is located in Lake Forest Park, Washington, about 10 miles north of Seattle.

This is one of the original OEM Ford trucks that were designed and built as an electric vehicle.

The truck is in near perfect shape, and is very low miles. It is also quite quick and is a sweet driver.

The original NiMH battery pack has been converted to lithium cells and a Bluetooth monitoring system was added to the pack, a new charger was added to take good care of

the new battery pack, and the original front power inlet was upgraded to a new J1772 socket to enable charging from any public charging station. Other than a battery and

charger conversion, this is an nice OEM truck.

This truck was converted to lithium iron phosphate battery technology in the fall of 2013 by Lanny in Eugene, Oregon. Lanny is a true EV lover, and has made the Ford Ranger factory EV one of his specialties. He 

 removed and thoroughly checked out the pack in March of 2014.

Some fun facts about the OEM Ford Ranger EV:  The Ford Ranger EV (Electric Vehicle) is a battery electric vehicle produced by Ford Motor Company. It was produced starting in the 1998 model year through 2002 and is no longer in production. It is built upon a light truck chassis used in the Ford Ranger. A few vehicles with lead-acid batteries were sold, but most units were leased for fleet use. A few persistent and interested private parties were able to obtain leases over a period of three to five years. All leases were terminated in 2003-04, and the vehicles were recalled ( Ford Ranger EV was built upon a Ford Ranger four-wheel drive chassis. ACCELERATION 0-50 mph at 100% SOC: 10.3 sec. The rear suspension consists of a De Dion tube that located the wheels and which was sprung by the usual longitudinal leaf springs. The first year of production (1998) used lightweight carbon fiber monolithic leaf springs which had insufficient lateral stiffness to provide lateral location of the suspension; these early versions also featured a Watt's linkage. Later versions used conventional steel leaf springs and did not have the Watt's linkage.   While most of the 1,500 vehicles produced have been destroyed, a number of Ranger EVs have been refurbished with new batteries like this truck.   The original cost of this vehicle (before manufacturer discounts and other public agency subsidies) was $52,720.00. In the day, Ford supported a generous 3 year lease program that would, along with Air Quality Management District funding and Federal Tax Credits, provided a 3 year lease at $155. per month.

This truck will be offered both on-line and locally in the Seattle area, and may be inspected and test driven with appointment. If the car is sold locally, the auction will be canceled before completion.

I am selling this truck for my son, and the truck lives at his house in Lake Forest Park.

Questions which are coming in and do not seem to be automatically added to eBay's question list:

1. Q. Does it have regenerative braking?
A . Yes all these trucks came standard from the factory with regen

2. Q Why is my son selling?
A. He says "need to get a vehicle with better safety features and something that holds a car seat. "
3. Q. Can I charge this at home using 110/120?
A. Yes, according to the manufacturers web site you can.

On Jun-05-14 at 23:13:25 PDT, seller added the following information:

4. Q. How long does it take to fully recharge the battery ?

A. That depends on how deep a discharge was made. It's a 343VDC battery, so its a 343*100ah = 34kwhr pack.
The charger is a 3kw charger, so if it were 1/2 discharged that would be 34/6 = 5.67 or a little under 6 hrs to recharge.
Typically recharges are done overnight, when electrical rates can be lower, and there is more time to recharge. Lanny (the battery convertor) believes
the slower charge rate extends the life of the pack, and recommends an overnight charge to mitigate the longer recharge time.
