The top selling truck in the US is F-150. In 2017, Ford decided to create an all-electric pickup truck. Their hybrid version comes out in 2020, which moved both the company and the market toward an EV truck. Ford’s video Tuesday demonstrates the electric truck’s remarkable towing capacity.
The video shows a prototype pull 10 double-decker rail cars over 1,000 feet. Are the rail cars empty? Well, yes, the 1st time. The 2nd time they’re loaded with over 40 I.C.E. F-150s weighing roughly 1.25 million pounds. As impressive as this is, Ford is behind Rivian and Tesla in tackling an E.V. pick up.
