Beam me up Scotty, this is intelligent life here

Electric trucks are coming, electric trucks are coming.

Get juiced, the predictions on “The Jetsens” cartoon when I was a kid are coming true. Tesler has the Cyber truck coming in a coupler years, looks like a space ship. GMC showed us more on the Hummer EV coming in 2022, Ford  all-electric F150 also coming in 2022. Better start recording the cool sounds of your

When I bought my Ford Fusion Hybrid, my deciding factor was the battery. How long would it last, what is the warranty, what would it cost to replace, what would it cost to dispose of it? Today Ford answered the question.

“The High Voltage Battery is covered by Ford for 8 Year or 100,000 Miles (whichever occurs first)

The electrical drivetrain system of your vehicle is covered by the Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Unique Component coverage for eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.” Now from website Ford Authority website is reporting MPG from Canada for the Hybrid 2021 F150 coming this fall will be rated 24 mpg highway, wait for it, yes 24 mpg in the city. That’s the secret to the hybrid becoming a hot seller, great fuel mileage in town. That was one of the thing that sold me on my hybrid Ford Fusion, was incredible city fuel mileage because of regenerative braking, recharging the batteries just by using your brakes. 

So imagine getting 24 mpg in the city with a truck, 8 year warranty on the battery and components, add that to a built in generator that can power your travel trailer at an idle for 30 hours and tow 12,000 lb trailer, how can life get any better?

And now the rest of the report on 2021 Ford F150, lots of details: Ford Press Release – Ford F150 Hybrid warranty

“The critical launch of the all-new F-150 is now underway — on time and with the Built Ford Tough quality our customers demand to get the job done,” said Jim Farley, Ford’s chief operating officer and incoming CEO. “F-Series pickups are the backbone of work and productivity across the country. And now we are preparing to build a fully electric version of America’s most popular vehicle, and it will be a seriously capable, purpose-built tool for serious truck customers.”

The 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 F-150 available today and deliver commercial and personal customers the lowest expected lifetime total cost of operation among F-Series trucks.
