Ford confirmed the plans for the electric F-150 to the Detroit Free Press, “We’re going to be electrifying the F-Series — battery electric and hybrid,” stated Jim Farley, Ford president of global markets.

Ford says that the decision to introduce electric and hybrid versions of the popular F-150 will “futureproof” the F-Series franchise.
