The world of pickup trucks is changing pretty fast these days and it looks like EV could take over the market in the near future. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the blue oval company is already preparing for such a scenario. Reports about the EV F-150 have been circulating around for some time and now we finally know some more precise details about the new truck. The thing we know for sure is that the new electric pickup truck will use the legendary nameplate and probably come as the 2021 Ford F-150 Full Electric.
Also, most of the details about the powertrain are pretty much certain. When it comes to the styling, some render photos have appeared and they suggest some pretty interesting aesthetical solutions. The new model should arrive sometime in the next year.
2021 Ford F-150 Full Electric In Numbers
If you’re familiar with the company that is called Rivian, you know that they are preparing a new electric truck called RT-1. The thing you probably don’t know about this company is that Ford is one of the major shareholders. Therefore, it seems very likely that the new 2021 Ford F-150 Full Electric will feature the same of a very similar setup. If you look at the Rivian R1T specs, you can see three output versions, as well as three battery capacities.
We may expect something similar to the blue oval company as well. In that case, base versions would probably feature a 105-kWh, while the biggest versions would come with a 180-kWh package. With such batter, we have no doubt that flagship models would be able to make more than 300 miles on a single charge, which seems like more than a respectable range for the class of EV trucks.
Acceleration and Towing Capacity
In terms of performances, the least powerful versions will probably need 5 seconds to hit 60 mph, while the most powerful variants will need no more than 3 seconds. Also, the most capable models will probably feature a max towing capacity between 11.000 and 14.000 pounds, which are typical ratings among internal-combustion half-ton pickup trucks. More precise details should be available soon.
2021 Ford F-150 Full Electric Styling
One of the things that bother most truck enthusiasts is the styling of the new 2021 Ford F-150 Full Electric. As the new model is expected to carry the famous nameplate, it will be part of the offer of the next-generation F-150, along with gasoline and diesel models. Therefore, we count on a styling that will closely resemble models with internal-combustion engines. As the next generation isn’t expected to bring any radical changes in this aspect, some render photos already appeared on the network. They suggest a pretty familiar overall layout, which won’t be changed too much.
On the other side, we can see a slightly different front face, which comes with a completely different grille design, which closely resembles the new Mach-E Mustang. Also, the headlights feature a slightly different shape. However, from a standpoint of typical F-150 fan, this is definitely a genuine F-150 pickup truck. Of course, count that the official version will be notably different, but this render definitely gives us a general picture.
2021 Ford F-150 Full Electric Release Date
According to the latest reports, the new pickup truck will hit the market sometime in the next year, while details are still unavailable. When it comes to the 2021 Ford F-150 Full Electric price, we know that the base Rivian R1T will go around 69.000 dollars. The blue oval company will probably try to make its truck a little bit more affordable, due to expected higher-volume sales.
