I have personally been asked many questions around EV power trains and how having so much torque would be great for an EV pickup (or model x) for towing. I personally am interested in this topic but have found lacking any credible and useful information around the subject. Was wondering if anyone had any credible knowledge of how much extra energy is used for different size towing loads. Specifically I am thinking of an F150 sized truck (basically the only truck people think about when talking about the subject) and how much extra energy for a 5,000 lbs load. Based on rough guesses I have been telling people 50 kwh per 100 miles (may be optimistic) with no load but have no idea on the 5,000 lbs boat senario. Obviously there is a lot of variables including wind resistance but just looking for ball park numbers. Are we talking about 30%, 50% or even double the energy?
