The time of the all-thermal on the huge American pick-up is over? We are not there. But Ford opens a door never crossed until then confirming the arrival of a Ford F150 Electric. The best sale of the American market would metamorphose already?
” Today 90% of our resources are allocated to trucks and SUVs “. This announcement comes from Ford Vice President Jim Farley. As much to say that the American brand is no longer likely to invest heavily for Focus and Fusion in the United States, preferring to turn to large vehicles, even if only to do that. And this kind of announcement is also not to reassure Ford’s European teams: we know that the parent company in the United States is looking for solutions to reduce losses on the Old Continent, which is definitely not successful. not to Americans (General Motors, Chrysler).
The unlimited support for large V6 and V8 pickups is not indefinite. Ford knows it and the brand no longer hides the Ford F150 electric, which will be a reality.
” We are going to electrify the entire F Series range, in both hybrid and electric, ” said Jim Farley. The goal is to make the best car sale in the US market “futureproof” (ready for the future).
Overall, US brands do not want to ignore the big pickups. It would take an economic crisis for Americans to give up these big energy-consuming vehicles and turn back to more compact cars. But in the meantime, the electric pickup is running, and Ford is not alone on the record since Tesla is preparing Electric Pickup Truck.
The Ford F-Series is a full-size pickup truck manufactured and sold by Ford Motor Company for more than 6 decades to date. The most popular variant of the F-Series is the F-150. This vehicle has been the best-selling car in the United States for many years, including 2018. Ford Motor Company plans to make F150 Electric deserve appreciation because it means they don’t turn a blind eye to the development of the era. However, will the performance of F150 Electric be better than Traditional F150, or at least equal? we will continue to monitor its development.
