Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

With a 0-to-60-mph time below 4 seconds, it should make quite the interesting pursuit vehicle.

Ford's Pro Power Onboard system can use the Lightning SSV's battery to help power lights at a nighttime accident scene.
