I would buy this in a heartbeat :hearteyecat: :hearteyecat: :hearteyecat:


1978 F-100 pickup with electric motors and batteries from the Mustang Mach-E GT:

  • Ford built the vehicle to showcase its new “e-crate motor” that’s now on sale online and at its dealerships. Such “crate” engines or motors are assembled by the company but are available for general purchase for building, fixing or customizing vehicles.
  • The concept pickup can produce 480 horsepower and 634 foot-pounds of torque, Ford said. It was designed and created by Ford Performance and built-in collaboration with aftermarket companies such as MLe Racecars and Roadster Shop.
  • Each of Ford’s e-crate motors produces 281 horsepower and 317 foot-pounds of torque and is street-legal in all 50 states, according to the company. Ford said the motor will retail for $3,900.

I wish Ford would actually market that truck, I'd buy one.
Since pickup's have become SUV's, they've given up most of their utility. They've all gone to short beds with very high sides, the exact opposite of what's needed in an actual pickup.

Always figured some company would formalize this.

I find myself in need of a 1975 Cadillac Eldorado that can hit warp 7 off the line.
I'm partial to the 75 Fleetwood myself. Bulk discount?

Edit:

Hmmm…

GM was supposed to offer a similar conversion kit for its older vehicles as well. It as supposed to have been out around now, but I suspect the Bolt debacle has set it back (as their kit was based upon Chevy Bolt components).

It's cool, but I also like what China's idea of what an electric pickup truck looks like:


If you live in China, you could get this whole damn "truck" for the price of that Ford crate motor.
