Now that the 2021 Ford F-150 is out of the box, the company can focus (pun unintended) on developing the electric version of the truck. It’s been in the works for quite some time now, but the first time we saw it in action – and that also officially confirmed its presence – was when Tesla challenged it to a towing capacity test and the electric F-150 allegedly towed over a million pounds. Apart from that, the company teased the truck a few months back along with the announcement of the new Rogue facility.
But, it seems like the company has already starting hyping it up. Ford released a teaser video that showcases the electric F-150 playing on ice like it’s no one else’s business.
In this 20-second clip, you can see the electric Ford F-150 driving around in snow and ice effortlessly. It is accompanied by the Mustang Mach-E as both the e-vehicles seem to be having fun in the cold conditions. If you look at the bigger picture, this also showcases the truck’s ability to survive in cold conditions, which is one of the concerns for folks looking to upgrade to EVs.
While the e-truck wears the regular F-150’s body in this video, it will come with a distinct design of its own. The company has teased it in the past, and it featured a full-width LED lightbar and diamond-grille up front along with a sculpted hood to give it a strong street cred. While the mechanical stuff is still unknown, the video shows an independent rear suspension setup.
With an imposing horde of upcoming monsters like the Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, etc. coming to conquer the electric truck segment, do you think Ford will be able to create the same dominance it has in the fuel-powered truck segment? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
