Electric Ford F-150 Pickup Will Come in Mid-2022 Along With Transit EV

  • Fully electric versions of the Ford F-150 and Ford Transit van coming in mid-2022

  • F-150 EV be based on new 2021 Ford F-150 set to debut end of month

  • F-150 EV prototype pulled a row of trains to demonstrate impressive capacity last year.


There will be a Ford F-150 electric version, but it will be delayed until mid-2022 Ford COO Jim Farley told investors during a conference call on Wednesday.

The electric F-150 pickup has been in the works for a while now. Last summer, Ford released a video of a F-150 electric pulling a row of trains in an effort to showcase the truck’s impressive towing capacity. The electric version will be based off of the 2021 Ford F-150 set to debut at the end of the month.

Although Ford has entered into a partnership with Rivian who plans to sell its own electric truck, the F-150 EV will be built entirely by Ford. It will be joined by an electric Ford Transit commercial van also coming in 2022. There will also be a hybrid version of the next F-150.

The Ford F-150 is the most popular vehicle in North America and has been for more than half of a century.

Farley told investors the next F-150 will feature wireless updates, something that had been rumored in recent weeks. For the first year or so the 2021 Ford F-150 will be sold alongside the previous generation.
