Unparalleled power and eco-friendly efficiency are at odds no more. This January, Ford’s president revealed that a battery-electric Ford F-150 is in the automaker’s future plans, joining the elite group of automakers (like Tesla and Rivian) that have promised upcoming fully-electric pickup trucks. Although there is no set release date yet for the all-electric Ford F-150, we think it’d be fitting if America’s best-selling truck lineup was the first one to make it to market with an all-electric, cutting-edge pickup truck.
Ford’s president, Jim Farley, revealed that the automaker is going to “be electrifying the F-Series — both battery-electric and hybrid” over the next few years. A hybrid F-150 is set to debut in 2020, which means that the F-series will likely enter its next generation for the 2021 model year. If this is the case, the electric and hybrid powertrains will accompany a fully redesigned Ford truck that boasts cutting-edge tech and design.
No specifics on the upcoming Ford F-150 hybrid or EV (electric vehicle) have been released yet. However, Ford has been pivoting to offer more electric powertrains across its lineup, including in its new electric crossover that is inspired by the Mustang’s iconic design.
