Ford Motor Co. has announced a new line for their F-150 trucks that are all-electric. The trucks will be assembled in Michigan starting next year and will be for sale in 2023. The electric F-150’s will be capable of driving from Edmonton to Calgary on a single charge. It also has enough juice to act as a backup generator to power a typical Canadian house for up to three days.
The F-150 Lightning prototype was showcased at its headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan on Wednesday evening. President Joe Biden got to take the truck for a test ride and said “this sucker’s quick”.
The F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in Canada for 11 years straight and the only existing electric model is a gasoline-electric hybrid. So, the new F-150 Lightning will be the companies first all-electric pickup truck.
Ford seems to have fully embraced the concept of allowing electric vehicles to act as a generator. The truck can generate 9.6 kilowatts of power from up to 11 power outlets in the vehicle. Ford describes it as “your own personal power plant,”.
