EVAdoption - Note from the editor

Ford recently announced plans to introduce both a hybrid and pure electric BEV version of its iconic F-150. The hybrid (unclear whether it will be a regular or plug-in hybrid and no indications yet on potential range) is expected to arrive at US dealers in 2020, but no timeline for the BEV version has been revealed. My own guess is for 2022-2023.

Would A Pure Electric (BEV) F-150 Be A Mistake For Ford?

But is that the right move by Ford, even 3 to 4 years from now? In my latest EVAdoption article, Would A Pure Electric (BEV) F-150 Be A Mistake For Ford?, I share some background on the potential intersection of EVs and pickups in the US and offer up four potential alternatives to Ford’s first BEV pickup being the F-150. Let me know your thoughts on my suggestions.
