Ford is Harnessing Electrification to Deliver More of What Customers Love

Updating America’s best-selling truck is not without its challenges. After all, why mess with tradition? Until recently, only two electric vehicles in the light-duty truck were available to consumers – the Rivian R1T and the Hummer EV. While supply chain issues impacted production for both models, it did not deter other major automakers from planning and designing electric versions of their most popular models. Toyota, Chevrolet, and Dodge all have plans to release the Tacoma EV, Silverado EV, and the RMA 1500 EV, respectively, over the next two years. Ford is the first to announce the production of the next generation of trucks with the F-150 Lightning.
