On a trivial note, the Ranger EV was one of the very few production vehicles ever to use the DeDion tube rear suspension, and another is my daily-driver i-MiEV. This allows a lightweight but rigid rear end for heavy loading and a close-coupled motor and gearbox that is fully suspended. The Ranger EV rear suspension is made of Aluminum forgings and aluminum tube.
