Ford has announced Hybrid, PHEV, and EV versions of the F-150 (and a number of variants of the Explorer with varying levels of electrification, too). And, of course, they're happy to keep selling ICE vehicles.This is not an ideal comparison. Ford is putting a bandage on their issue and saying, look we made it better now. Still an ICE vehicle. Ford should just focus on BEV now and not hybrid. CT all stainless body BEV, everything else is icing on my cake. Enough said.
Ford isn't on a mission to create a low-carbon economy. Ford just wants to sell you a truck, and they don't much care what kind of truck you buy -- just so long as Ford makes it and your check doesn't bounce.
Considering where Ford is in the automotive landscape, this is a pretty sensible business move.
Inspiring? Not so much.
