Major news today as Ford has officially confirmed a fully electric version of their best-selling F-150 truck is coming within the next two years. We’ve known for quiet a while that an F-150 EV was coming, but we didn’t expect it would arrive this early.
Over the past 12 months multiple electric F-150 prototypes have been spotted, with many utilizing a Rivian chassis. However, according to our sources the production F-150 will not use a base from Rivian (a company Ford has heavily invested in) but instead it’s own unique platform.
Ford’s statement means the F-150 EV will arrive by mid-2022 at the latest – around the same time the Cybertruck will hit the market. No word on pricing or specs, but we estimate $50k would be about right and a range of up to 400 miles per charge plus a 11,000 lbs towing capacity would be quite possible. Would you consider an all-electric F-150 over a Cybertruck or Rivian R1T? Let us know in the replies section below.
