For decades, the Ford F-150 has dominated as America’s favorite, best-selling truck. In fact, for more than 40 years, it has been the best-selling vehicle of any kind in the United States. Fans appreciate its pure power for towing and hauling. So how will they react when Ford markets an electric Ford F-150 that uses zero gas power to get the job done?
Ford is hoping that its recent display of power will win fans over. According to Fox Business, Ford recently demonstrated a prototype of an electric F-150 truck, in which the F-150 towed 10 double-decker rail cars with 42 F-150s on board. Altogether, this rail cars weighed more than one million pound — and the electric Ford F-150 was able to pull them along.
Specifically, Ford hopes to capture the attention of female drivers. In recent years, women have been ditching the minivan in search of something different. SUVs have been their main choice, but Chief Nameplate Engineer of the F-150 Linda Zhang is hoping that an electric truck this powerful — but with great safety features and interior space — might win women over.
No word yet on when a Ford F-150 electric will be released, but you can find the gas-powered F-150 here at Transwest Ford.
