Ford Motor Company is showcasing it’s upcoming all-electric Ford F-150 pickup, in a new teaser video. This is the first time that the company has released any information on its upcoming electric truck. In the teaser video, Ford stouts the towing capability of the all-new electric F-150, by towing 10 double-decker rail cars, full of 42 brand-new 2019 Ford F-150 pickups totaling more than 1.25 million pounds.
Linda Zhang, the chief engineer of the Ford F-150 takes an all-electric F-150 prototype and first pulls the rail cars with an empty load. After seeing how the truck can tow the rail cars with ease, they hold the 42 Ford F-150 pickups for some more added drama.
In its press release, Ford Motor Company states that the all-electric Ford F-150 prototype is “towing far beyond a production truck’s capacity in a one-time short event demonstration”. It goes on to say to “never tow beyond a vehicle’s towing capacities. Always consult the Owner’s Manual”. Gotta love companies covering their tracks in a lawsuit-happy society. But nevertheless, it is a very impressive feat.
The all-new electric Ford F-150 will join the upcoming all-new F-150 Hybrid, that goes on next year. The electrified models, highlight the companies plan in the future of electric vehicles throughout the next couple of years.
