Ford grabbed headlines by announcing that they are moving their entire, and entirely popular, F-150 line of pickups to all electric. This more than any other electric news should send chills down the spines of those who are betting on fossil fuel’s future.
“We’re going to be electrifying the F-series — battery electric and hybrid,” Jim Farley, Ford’s president of global markets, said at a Deutsche Bank conference in Detroit Wednesday.
According to CNN the company isn’t giving any details on the truck yet, including when it will go on sale.
Clearly they are racing Tesla to market as they have been long rumored to be working on an electric pickup.
