They are slow on the uptake to be sure, but at the Detroit auto show this week, Ford finally announced that is developing an all-electric version (EV) of its best selling F100 truck:

“…the engineering advantages of electric pickups are appealing: the large, full-size platform is ideal for carrying a large battery, needed to supply adequate range, power, and towing capability.

Several other carmakers are entering the all-electric pickup game.”

EVs that recharge on grids powered by renewable energy are the way forward.  This is progress.  The more customers who ask for EVs, the faster they will come.
