Construction at Ford BlueOval City – a massive facility in Tennessee that will produce a new all-electric F-Series model starting in 2025 – officially began last September, and has come a very long way in the months since then. Back in December, construction also began at the automaker’s new EV battery plant – BlueOval SK Battery Park in Kentucky – at which time Ford and its joint venture partner SK On asked those in attendance to sign a steel beam that was then erected in the facility permanently. Now, that same ceremony has been performed at Ford BlueOval City, too.
During the automaker’s recent celebration at that facility, Ford and SK On asked those in attendance to also sign a steel beam, with the intentions of installing it as a permanent piece of the new plant. This week, the construction team on-site officially installed the new beam at the BlueOval SK battery plant located on the BlueOval City campus.
“Ford is so thrilled to become part of this community and to build the electric future with the people of West Tennessee,” said Ermal Faulkner, Director of BlueOval City and EV sites. “We are proud to have all those who joined us at the celebration permanently leave their mark on the BlueOval City project and we hope that many will join us to build advanced EVs and batteries at this very site in 2025.”
During this same event at Ford BlueOval City – which will utilize carbon-free power from the day it opens – The Blue Oval also announced that its next all-electric pickup – codenamed Project T3 (for “Trust The Truck”) – will be built at that same facility, which will be capable of churning out 500,000 EV pickups per year when it’s fully operational.
