Electric pickup trucks are the future. Actually, electric vehicles are, but pickup trucks are getting started. It comes with no surprise that Ford will be one of the very first manufacturers to deliver an electric pickup truck. Yes, Tesla did it first, we know. However, the 2021 Ford F-150 Electric will cause a huge splash.
Whatsoever, F-150 is already the world’s best light-duty model. For that reason, F-150 is a perfect candidate for electrifying. Besides that, all F-150 models will get more tech. Ford plans to make its best-selling model dominant in the technology segment as well.
Latest spy shots have shown a test mule in Michigan. Many experts believe that is the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 Electric. It does make sense, after all, Ford confirmed electric version at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. Basically, the prototype looks the same as the existing F-150 model.
The only exceptions are a place for the plugin and higher ride. It is another confirmation because the higher ride is a must in order to accommodate batteries underneath the cabin. Unfortunately, this is a very early prototype and we are still far away from the final product.
Ford plans to target tech dominance, not only in the pickup truck segment. But, once again, F-150 is the most perfect candidate to start with. Not only that the 2021 Ford F-150 Electric will get impressive technologies, but all versions and trim levels. According to the latest reports, F-150 will get a new touchscreen.
This unit will be at least 50% larger than the current display. It is a direct response to Ram’s latest technology innovations. This will help Ford to install latest features and systems. On top of that, the interior will clear the number of buttons from the inside.
All-Electric Powertrain Specs
This is a tough one. No one actually knows how much power will Ford deliver. However, we hope for the 2021 Ford F-150 Electric to produce more than the regular gasoline version. Blue Oval released a video of a prototype of the new electric pickup truck. In the same video, F-150 EV is towing a train full of other F-150 models. The video was a huge success. (picture below)
More importantly, this clearly suggests an impressive towing capacity. Ford confirmed it is investing $500 million in the startup Rivian Automotive. On top of that, two companies will collaborate on the new-battery for electric vehicles. Rivian promised some mind-whooping powertrain figures. Surely, Ford will rival Tesla with ease.
2021 Ford F-150 Electric Price and Release Date
New 2021 Ford F-150 Electric will arrive before 2021. The most likely release date is later in 2020. This could easily change so we have to wait for the official confirmation.
Price is a big mystery for various reasons. However, we believe Ford will deliver a competitive price in line with Tesla Pickup Truck. Elon Musk said that Tesla’s pickup will start below $49,000.
