Ford announced it intends to release an all-electric version of its F-150 pickup truck, but has not said when that vehicle may be released.
According to reports, the announcement was made with little other information, including a potential timeline or any details on the vehicle’s power train. Industry insiders have been speculating about an electric F-150 since Ford execs hinted at the possibility last year. It is unclear whether such a vehicle would be a part of the recently announced partnership between Ford and German automaker Volkswagen.
This would not be the first time Ford has attempted to create an all-electric pickup. They briefly produced an electric Ranger model from 1998 to 2002. Ford has also announced a hybrid version of the F-150 slated to release in 2020.
