Ford’s expanding EV plans include even more electric F-150s

Later today Ford will reveal a zero-emissions electric version of its best-selling commercial Transit van, but the company already tipped some of its electric plans for the next few years. As part of a $3.2 billion investment in EV manufacturing across North America, Ford will build the E-Transit in its Kansas City plant.

Ford is investing an additional $100 million in its Kansas City Assembly Plant and adding approximately 150 full-time jobs to begin producing the all-new E-Transit on the heels of the all-electric F-150 announced in September; E-Transit arrives late 2021, F-150 electric 2022.

More relevant for consumers, though, are its other plans. An electric Ford F-150 is scheduled for arrival in mid-2022, and now the company is “increasing production plans by 50 percent versus original plans” based on interest in the pickup, which will be built at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn.
