If you look at Ford’s sales numbers, there’s no doubt that trucks are the biggest money makers. More than a million units from the famous F-Series have been sold in last year. One of the reasons for that is that the Blue Oval company has a truck for everyone. It’s not only about various trim levels of F-150 models, but the lineup extends all away up to F-750 models and includes both Super Duty and Medium Duty trucks. Also, the Ranger came back, so the company covers pretty much a complete truck segment. So, what is next to be offered, something that can improve sale figures even more. That would definitely be a 2021 Ford F-150 Full-Electric Pickup Truck.
2021 Ford F-150 Full-Electric Pickup Truck Design
It has been officially confirmed that the Blue Oval company is working on an all-electric pickup truck. At first, many experts expected to see electric powertrain in a smaller truck first, but latest reports are claiming it will debut in the famous F-150. At this point, details are unavailable. Still, we may presume that the new model is about to come in about two years, probably as the 2021 Ford F-150 Full-Electric Truck. The reason is quite simple. The current generation will be replaced soon, so there is no use to work on such expensive and complex powertrain on an outgoing model. Therefore, the 2021 Ford F-150 Electric Pickup Truck will debut with the next-generation model.
2021 Ford F-150 Electric Pickup Truck Drivetrain
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is drivetrain. At this point, we don’t have any details. However, we may presume that a lot of technologies will be borrowed from the Mustang-inspired electric crossover. Moreover, we expect to see a similar drivetrain setup, though with significantly more power. Also, keep in mind that the new 2021 Ford F-150 Full-Electric Pickup Truck would require a much bigger battery pack. The upcoming crossover is expected to feature an all-electric range of around 300 miles and if the new truck tends to get similar numbers, it will need a much bigger battery pack.
2021 Ford F-150 Full-Electric Pickup Truck Exterior and Interior
Although the 2021 Ford F-150 Full-Electric Truck will be a pretty revolutionary truck, it will also share many of its design solutions with standard, gasoline and diesel models. Of course, the overall design will be largely the same. This means we can count on the same platform and the same aesthetics. Visually, this version should feature pretty much the same design as conventional models, with just a couple of details that would accentuate its all-electric character. This particularly refers to a different grille design, different wheels and similar things. Same goes for the interior design.
Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, the 2021 Ford F-150 Full-Electric Pickup Truck is about to come after the redesign of standard models, which means we can expect it in about two years. When it comes to the price, details are still unavailable. Still, there is no doubt it will cost significantly more than conventional models. Some reports roughly estimate a 50.000 price tag for base versions.
