Ford Hints At Full-Electric Version Of The All-New Maverick

The all-new 2022 Ford Maverick has the makings to become an extremely popular small utility vehicle


  • The Ford Maverick was revealed only yesterday.

  • A hybrid powertrain is standard for $20k US, $26k in Canada.

  • No dates or official details for the Maverick EV but it’s on Twitter so…


Ford refers to the Maverick’s market position as a no ex-white space. Among all the trucks and utility vehicles available for sale in North America, there was no small pickup and there certainly wasn’t a hybrid version. It appears as though Ford will also add the fact that there wasn’t an electric small utility vehicle either.

The 2022 Ford Maverick Starts At $25,900 In Canada

The 2022 Ford Maverick promises a combination of elements that were, up until now, not offered in any other vehicle. With the hybrid powertrain, the Maverick can still tow up to 2,000 lbs and haul 1,500 lbs in the bed. Projected fuel efficiency numbers are as low as 5.9L/100km on the highway and it can carry up to five passengers. Most impressive is that all of this is included for under $26,000 in Canada.

The hint that leads us to believe that Ford also has an electric version of the Maverick comes from Twitter and was posted by Mike Levine, Ford North America Product Communications director. The image shows little more than the outline of a small pickup and the battery pack, set low in the outline between the two axles, is clearly visible.

There currently are no other details such as availability and pricing. We think that Ford will knock another one out of the park and offer it at a very attainable price.
