Ford is one automotive manufacturer who’s never been afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to building their vehicles.

It’s one of the many reasons that they’ve been able to stay popular with customers for so many years.

They’ve recently proved this once again after revealing their newest innovation.

The car company- who’s perhaps best known for their pickups- is going to make both a hybrid pickup, and a fully electric pickup.

Ford’s President of global markets, Jim Farley, announced these exciting plans during an event in Detroit. Farley’s revelation also included the fact that the F-series were the pickups being targeted for making one fully electric. A bold choice, indeed; but it definitely piqued the interests of many who heard the announcement.

Given the fact that Ford has previously invested in the electric vehicle market, Farley’s revelation really should not be surprising. Moreover, Ford is arguably one of the most popular car manufacturers in existence. So, taking this bold step will no doubt help them stand out from their competitors when it comes to electric pickups.

This announcement has already stirred up a lot of excitement from both customers and car experts alike. However, there was no hint given as to which model will become an electric vehicle during Farley’s announcement. This is in stark contrast to a hybrid pickup- the model in question there is the F-150. That project has been in the works in North America since 2015. But perhaps the recent announcement is hinting that it could come out sooner than later.

 

But car experts believe that an electric Ford pickup truck won’t come out until sometime in 2020. Should that turn out to be the case, the model year for these innovative new pickups would be 2021. However, all of that is merely speculation at this point. Whether it actually happens this way or not still remains to be seen.

Needless to say, it will be very interesting to see when Ford releases their hybrid and electric pickup trucks.
