Ford has been on the front line of innovation in the auto industry….think Mustang and Pinto……and now they have done it again…..and it is the most popular pick-up truck in the world….the F150.
Ford has revealed the all-electric F-150 pickup truck one day ahead of schedule. The truck, dubbed F-150 Lightning, was on display Tuesday at Ford’s Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Michigan during a speech from President Biden.
Images from the event show that the F-150 Lightning largely looks like its gas and hybrid counterparts, though the truck has a more modern grille, with an unbroken light bar that stretches from headlight to headlight. And even from a distance, it seems that the F-150 Lightning will have a large portrait touchscreen similar to the one in the Mustang Mach-E.
Biden gave the country and the world a peep at the new Ford in a speech in Michigan….
President Biden got to test drive Ford’s electric pick-up truck Tuesday when he made an unscheduled visit to a Ford driving course that typically carries out safety tests. The Secret Service trailed Biden as he tried out the Ford F-150 Lightning, CNN reports. Biden apparently gave away a secret when he told reporters the truck went from 0 to 60 in about 4.4 seconds; a rep later told reporters that information was supposed to be made public when the truck is officially revealed Wednesday, though he said it was fine that the president had let it slip early.
I applaud the ingenuity of Ford and under different circumstances it could be the game changer they are promoting.
A game changer?
First there needs to be a game before it can change…..
Who will buy an electric truck when there are few power charging stations across the country?
Wait…Biden has said that his infrastructure plan would give the country about 50,000 charging stations.
Now that sounds good right?
The problem is that his plan will most likely go NOWHERE in the Senate.
I say again…hard to be a game changer when there is no game to change.
This was purely a political thingy….reality says it all….was this just a PR thing to justify any government funding?
