Halfbreed makes the most sense but Id rather a diesel halfbreed than gasoline if there were.
halfbreed works well in a car. Lose too much carrying capacity in a work truck. I also doubt that one could legally carry a camper with a halfbreed.

The same. It has to. A one tonne is a one tonne
Different 1Tons from different years (Ford Dodge GMC) have different weight ratings for Towing capacity.

A 1Ton with single drive wheels will have a lower weight rating than one with dual wheels (though they have the same drive train), & they’re all 1Tons.

I’ve never compared 1Ton full electric or hybrid weight ratings against Diesel, etc… because to the best of my knowledge none of the exist yet.

A pick up with a 4cyl will have a different towing capacity rating than one with a v8 or inline six…& they might all be 1/2Tons.

There are variables out the yin yang. Rear gears, stick, automatic, dualies, 4x4 etc. Lots of combos.

A Ram 3500 is a Ram 3500 no matter the drive train.

Is anyone building an electric (fully) or hybrid 1Ton truck for commercial or private usage? Is this all hypothetical?

I know we couldn’t touch the darn things (at least the fully electric) because of the limited range ourselves.
