Our online video series “Northern Lightning” arrived at a massive milestone: we created it all the way up to the northernmost point in North The united states, Prudhoe Bay, Alaska – in an electrical pickup truck!
Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay are situated at the northernmost reaches of the Alaska road technique. Nestled on the coastline of the Arctic Ocean, it is located wherever the pipeline begins. Not a put for an electrical motor vehicle, in particular presented the 1000’s of miles of rugged street you must operate by means of to get there. Even in an interior combustion vehicle, the route is challenging.
Roman Mica, CEO of TFL Studios, crafted the thought of getting an electric powered truck to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska more than a year in the past. Due to the fact then, the TFL Studios’ workforce has banded together to guidance this endeavor. Jay Traugott, our new producer, invested a great number of several hours doing the job with the workforce to finalize the logistics.
“Being first to generate an electric powered truck as significantly north as achievable in the United States was an epic experience up the Dalton Highway. It proves that, if you have the time, EV trucks are just as able as the good previous conventional truck…. but only it you have the time.”
Supported by David Morrow, and Cole Pearson our videographer, the crew had to get artistic with achievable contingencies. As these types of, we secured an F-150 PowerBoost (hybrid) to use as a support vehicle. On leading of that, the PowerBoost technique can, in an unexpected emergency, cost the F-150 Lightning. Just one of the points of this journey was to obtain charging areas together the way, and to go with out unexpected emergency charging.
“It’s been a challenging and exceptionally rewarding experience for the TFL workforce to make this come about. Really hard work, creative imagination, and crew work pays off. The Ford F-150 Lightning is an extraordinary piece of technology and we simply cannot wait around to see what the Blue Oval does next!”
Whilst all of the TFL Staff members supported this endeavor, I would like to shower a small added praise on Andre Smirnov, Alex Lightman and Grant Davis. Without the need of their really hard do the job, the trucks would have never ever built it to Alaska.
