If Tesla has examined the F-150 Hybrid / Lightning marketing materials, they've considered adding a 110V / 220V wall-power inverter for the convenience of the owner.I wonder if Tesla even considered an integrated inverter.
And, if so, what is the additional cost?
Upgrading from the 2kW inverter to the 7kW inverter comes with an option package that costs around $3k-$5k, if I remember correctly.
I don't know what Tesla decided. Toyota isn't doing an inverter on their hybrid truck, and they say their customers don't care -- but it sounds to me like someone at Toyota's trying to save face after being out-innovated. What will Tesla decide to do here?
I personally find the inverter a pretty compelling feature, but not compelling enough to get me to swap my $10k 2010 GMC Sierra Hybrid for a $60k F150 Hybrid -- neither one is a "forever truck" for me, and neither one has a plug.
