All-Electric F-150 Prototype Tows Over 1 Million Pounds
Ford recently showed off a prototype of an all-electric Ford F-150, which the company has been working on and committed to bringing to market in the future. To show off the prototype’s incredible torque provided by the all-electric drivetrain, Ford put the all-electric F-150 pickup to the ultimate test.
Linda Zhang, the chief engineer of the Ford F-150, demonstrated the F-150 all-electric prototype towing 10 double-decker rail cars that were hauling 42 brand new F-150 trucks. The total weight of the trucks and rail cars came in at over 1 million pounds.
The video released by Ford demonstrates the commitment of Ford’s engineers to make sure any electrified version of the legendary F-150 pickup truck continues to have the toughness, capability and innovation that owners across the country have come to expect.
In addition to an all-electric Ford F-150 coming to the market in the future, Ford has announced that it will be introducing an all-new F-150 Hybrid that will go on sale in 2020. Like all F-150 trucks, the new hybrid model will be able to work and play hard.
