Ford has published the first teaser of the new f-150 pickup truck, equipped with an all-electric power plant.

The darkened image shows the front of the model, which will stand on the conveyor of

the new division of the Ford Rouge plant in Dearborn-Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, designed for the Assembly of electric cars.

The electric version will get a special radiator grille plug with a three-dimensional pattern.

Daytime running lights are United by a light strip in a single U-shape, and smallheadlights are located on the sides.

The large band resembles the optics of the Rivian startup models, in the development of which Ford previously invested half a billion dollars.

Judging by the image, many features of the front part are borrowed from the Ford-150 with a traditional internal combustion engine of the 2021 model: pickups share the shape of the wings and rear-view mirrors, as well as the relief of the hood.

Under the hood of the electric version, instead of the engine, there will be a trunk for storing things.

Details about the equipment and power plant of the car are not yet available.

Earlier, Ford assured that the “green” version will be the most powerful in the F-150 line in its history.It is expected that the pickup will receive two electric motors , with a total capacity of more than 450 horsepower, installed one on each axle.

The battery pack can be integrated into the truck frame to improve weight distribution and strength.

Last year, Ford demonstrated the power of an electric pickup prototype, which managed to move a dozen loaded double-Decker cars.
First, the electric car was tested with empty cars, and then 42 copies of the Ford F-150 2019 model year were installed on the platforms, as a result of which the total weight increased to one million pounds (more than 450 tons).
