The all-new 2021 Ford F-150 has just debuted. Starting with a hybrid version, it will adapt to electrification and should become all-electric from a 2022 model year.

The F-150 battery-electric vehicle will possibly bear the name “EVerglades” or simply “F-150 Electric”. It should tow not less than the hybrid model – 12,000 pounds +.

We remind the first to come will be the 2021 Ford F-150 with a PowerBoost gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain that comprises a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine, and a 10-speed automatic gearbox with an integrated 35-kW electric motor.

We expect the F-150 Electric will have electric motors on each axle and a large battery pack to cover at least 200 miles on a single charge. It is due to ride on an upgraded version of the model’s standard platform.

To improve aerodynamic efficiency, Ford will probably revise the electric F-150’s frond end, equip it with specific wheels and side skirts.

At the start, the BEV modification could offer one or a couple of trim levels, cab and bed length variants, with more trims to be eventually added.

And, certainly, even the cheapest Ford F-150 Electric will cost significantly more than the gasoline model. Currently, the F-150 for 2020 is priced between $28,745-71,160.
