According to Bloomberg, Ford is currently building a new plant near its original factory to produce an electric version of its F-150 pickup truck.
The first batch of F-150 electric pickup truck prototypes is planned to start production next year, with mass production expected to be achieved by 2022.
However, Ford has not yet indicated how many electric pickups it expects to produce. Data shows that Ford sold about 900,000 F-series pickup trucks last year, bringing in about $42 billion in revenue.
As previously stated by Ford, at least 16 new electric vehicles will be added to its global product portfolio in the next two to three years, including this year’s Mustang Mach-E.
As the star model of the Ford brand, the F-series pickup truck’s transition to electrification is particularly important. However, by 2022, Tesla’s Cybertruck and Rivian’s R1T will also be in production, and we look forward to seeing what changes will occur in the US pickup truck market at that time.
