Ford has revealed the first information about Project T3, the successor to the F-150 Lightning. This new electric model will likely be much faster. It will be manufactured at BlueOval City, a dedicated electric vehicle site in Tennessee.
Ford is preparing for the post-F-150 Lightning era
The brand’s future electric pickup promises to ” Fix all F-150 Lightning problems “It will be announced in early 2023.” T3 project » It will be a replacement for the F-150 Lightning. The brand published a video in which we see the silhouette of the future pickup for a split second (in 32). Its design seems reminiscent of another. There’s a bit of a Tesla Cybertruck feel to it, don’t you think?
We can see a four-wheeled, silver-coloured model, but not much else. However, we know that this pickup truck will be more durable than the F-150 Lightning. Project T3 means ” Trust the truck “. This is a topic that Ford engineers have been working hard on for several months. The model will likely be the first to benefit from the brand’s platform dedicated to electric vehicles.
How will Ford reduce the battery of its future 7-seat electric SUV?
The T3 project has competition
Enough to make it more efficient than current lightning. In his video, Ford promised that he would “ Elegant, dynamic and incredibly fast “. Marketing is planned for 2025. Ford will have to compete against major competitors: the Chevrolet Silverado EV, the Ram 1500 REV, and of course the Tesla Cybertruck. Three 100% electric pickup trucks that promise very strong performance.
All three models promise more than 650 horsepower (although we don’t have all the details about the Cybertruck yet). This shouldn’t pose a problem for the Ford T3 project. On the other hand, autonomy and charging performance are another story. Ford’s competitors can travel more than 650 kilometers. And certainly up to 800 kilometers for the best version of the Tesla model.
They will also be able to handle up to 350 kilowatts DC (250 kilowatts for the Cybertruck). It is enough to restore 160 km of autonomy in 10 minutes. At the moment, we do not know whether the Ford model will be able to compete with these three giants. If the American can do better, the T3 could position itself at the top of the 100% electric pickup truck lineup.
