A few weeks ago, the manufacturer Ford announced the upcoming arrival of a 100% electric version of its famous Transit. Historically (or almost), this small van represents a significant part of the company's revenues, and since 2015, sales of Ford trucks and vans have increased by 33%.
The electric Ford F-150 not before 2022
In a recent interview with CNBC, one of the great pundits of the Ford group, Jim Farley, gave some details concerning another much awaited electric vehicle, the F-150. Indeed, the iconic pickup of the American brand will also be available in a zero emission version, and should be a real success in dealerships.
Indeed, if the electric car market has evolved considerably in recent years, that of "Trucks" electrics should quickly experience the same success, proof a few months ago with the worldwide craze aroused by a certain Tesla Cybertruck. The electric Ford F-150 should be available sometime in 2022.
The new version of the Ford F-150 will be formalized at the end of this month, with a hybrid engine, and availability stalled for the end of this year. It will therefore be necessary to be relatively patient to climb aboard the 100% electric declination, which will then enter into direct competition with Tesla, but also other giants like General Motors or Rivian, whose electric pick-up is expected for 2021. According to a Ford spokesperson: “We are electrified, and we are a brand that people trust. "
Let us recall that the manufacturer Ford has committed to offer an electrified version of each new vehicle in Europe, and will extend its range to 18 electrified vehicles before the end of the year 2021 on the continent. Recall that the brand has recently unveiled its Mustang Mach-E, an electric SUV derived from the famous sports car.
