Until now, there haven’t been many options for drivers who want an electric vehicle but still need something that can tow and haul. However, at the beginning of this year, Ford announced that they’d be releasing an all-electric version of their Ford F-150. Since then, that announcement has inspired lots of excitement in the eco-conscious community.
Though Ford has yet to announce exactly when the all-electric F-150 will go into production, it has done a great job of keeping fans excited. This summer, Ford released a video that demonstrated the immense towing capabilities of the electric Ford F-150 prototype. In it, the chief engineer of the F-150, Linda Zhang, shows off the electric F-150 prototype’s towing power by pulling 42 2019 Ford F-150 trucks as well as 10 double-decker rail cars. Altogether, the electric Ford F-150 prototype tows 1 million pounds in the video.
Granted, the prototype boasts a greater capability than what the production version of the electric truck will offer. But whatever capability it does provide is sure to be enough to meet, and perhaps exceed, the needs of electric-truck consumers.
