According to a CNN article, Ford is going to make an all-electric version of its F-150 truck, which has been the best-selling vehicle in America for four straight decades.
Jim Farley, Ford’s president of global markets, said, “We’re going to be electrifying the F-series — battery electric and hybrid,” at a Deutsche Bank conference in Detroit on Jan. 16.
