To convince Americans to switch to electric power, Ford is currently conducting intense testing for the development of its electric F-150. The oval-shaped brand doesn't want to disappoint and offer a viable alternative to many drivers still fond of the traditional V6s and V8s.
Ford has therefore published a video showing the progress in the development of its electric pickup truck. The prototype based on the old Ford F-150 uses the motors of the future model. We can see the vehicle in action pulling a trailer, driving through mud, driving along a bumpy track and climbing a 60% slope.
The American brand has also published a teaser showing the electric F-150 for the first time. The styling will be fairly futuristic, with an LED bar linking the two headlights to distinguish it from the thermal versions. On the technical side, the pickup truck should probably adopt electric motors from Rivian.
This would allow for an electric motor on each axle to create an intelligent all-wheel drive system. Combined power could reach 600 or even 700 hp, making the F-150 electric the most powerful Ford pickup truck ever produced. The Ford F-150 electric will be introduced in 2022.
