It will feature a dual-motor setup.
The “engine-bay” will serve as a huge trunk.
The electric F-150 is still undergoing testing.
Ford has begun production of the hotly-anticipated all-new 2021 F-150 which will arrive in showrooms this November. At the same time, they’ve announced their $700 million investment in the historic Rouge Complex where the all-electric F-150 will be assembled.
The Ford F-150 is an undeniable pillar in the US economy. In fact, a Boston Consulting Group study has found that the F-Series pickup contributes directly to approximately 500,000 jobs in the country. It is also the best-selling trunk in the US, and Canada, and has been for decades.
As the petrol-, diesel- and hybrid-powered full-size trucks are being assembled, Ford has shared a few details on the F-150 that promises to be the most revolutionary of them all: The all-electric F-150. Of the few bits of information made available by Ford, we know the truck will feature a dual-motor setup (and thus will be AWD) and will deliver more horsepower and torque than any currently available F-150. It will also be the fastest and capable to tow heavy trailers.
Other projected advantages to the electric F-150 will be its massive frunk (front trunk) and a 40% lifetime total cost of operation savings. And as technologies continue to progress, this F-150, like the others, will receive over-the-air updates.
Ford says that the all-electric F-150 will be coming to the market in mid-2022.
