Ford released on Friday details about the progress of its new BlueOval City electric vehicle facility in West Tennessee, USA, which produces 500 electric vehicles per year. Here, the company intends to launch its next electric truck, codenamed Project T3 (Trust The Truck).
The Project T3 is a project funded by the automaker, which states that it is "completely refurbished, continually improved, and supports the owners' desire for towing, hauling, exporting power, and ongoing innovation."
The BlueOval City complex will be unveiled no earlier than 2025. It will be a "mega-campus" that will house Ford's F-series pickup operations and battery assembly division, according to the company on Friday. The main manufacturing line for assembling a new generation electric truck will also be located here.
'Project T3 is a unique opportunity to revolutionize America's trucks,' said Ford CEO and President Jim Farley. "It will serve as a platform for many innovations and opportunities."
The electric F-150 Lightning is easily distinguishable from the gasoline-powered F-150 nameake, but it is anticipated to be quite different from other Ford vehicles both in terms of design and performance. In particular, Farley said in a podcast in 2022 that the new model will have "active and deployable aerodynamics."
"Journalist) Patrick Jake O'Rourke once referred to American pickup trucks as the "rear porch with the engine attached." Well, this new truck will be like the "Millennium Falcon with the rear porch attached," he said.
