Back in June, we reported that the first-ever all-electric F-150 was scheduled to arrive by mid-2022. Ford recently confirmed that fact, and also shared a variety of new details about the forthcoming Ford F-150 EV, which will be built at the automaker’s brand new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, currently under construction in Michigan. But Ford also gave us a quick teaser of the electric F-150’s front end, too.
This new teaser is very much in the same vein as the one it showed off prior to the reveal of the all-new 2021 Ford F-150. This new Ford F-150 EV front end teaser also presents a look that’s quite similar to the 2021 model, with the same front fender, hood, and side mirror design.
However, the most obvious differences are the presence of a full-width front light bar, a highly-stylized front grille with raised pyramid-shaped sections, and small, circular headlights. Since there won’t be an engine underhood, that space will instead serve as a massive front trunk. It’s a very bold design indeed, and a stark contrast to the soft, round edges typically seen on all-electric vehicles.
Ford is backing up those brash looks with what it calls “a seriously capable, purpose-built tool for serious truck customers.” The automaker says that the all-electric F-150, which is undergoing tens of thousands of hours of torture testing and targeting millions of simulated, laboratory, and real world test miles, will be more powerful than any prior or existing F-150 and deliver commercial and personal customers the lowest expected lifetime total cost of operation among Ford F-Series trucks.
The all-electric F-150 will feature dual electric motors to deliver more horsepower and torque than any F-150 available today, the fastest acceleration, and the ability to tow heavy trailers. Additionally, Ford was quick to point out that electric vehicles, including the electric F-150, require significantly less maintenance than a typical gasoline engine, creating more than 40 percent savings for its lifetime total cost of operation.
