Ford Confirms Hybrid F-150 and Mustang On the Way

A hybrid F-150 and Mustang have been rumored for a while now, but Ford has officially confirmed the two vehicles are in the pipeline.

Ford confirmed that it plans to release 13 global electric and hybrid vehicles in the next five years including a hybrid F-150 pickup truck, a hybrid Mustang, and a plug-in Transit van. Ford also confirmed that a mystery fully electric small SUV with 300 miles of range is coming by 2020 to be sold in North America, Europe, and Asia, along with two new electrified police cars.

The hybrid Mustang will be only available in North America at first and will debut in 2020. The hybrid F-150 will also be available in 2020 in North America and the Middle East and will be able to be used as a mobile power generator.

Another EV Ford plans on producing in the near future is a high-volume, hybrid autonomous car built for ride sharing or a ride-hailing service that will debut in 2021.

Interestingly, Ford announced that it is canceling plans to build a $1.6-billion plant in Mexico and will instead invest $700-million into upgrading the Flat Rock, Michigan, plant. The plant upgrades will add about 700 jobs and focus on manufacturing electrified and autonomous cars. Ford is making a huge investment into electrified cars and will spend nearly $4.5-billion in the field by 2020.

    should have been in a new Ranger not Funk150.

    Oh. Jeez.
    A hybrid gas/electric.
    Not a hybrid F-150/Mustang.
    I was thinking, “Not another El Camino…”

  • Josh Cooper

    Yes, because people have been leaving Ford in droves to buy un-rebadged Mazda pickups rather than F150s. How many Mazda pickups are sold every minute, I wonder?

  • Biggy Johnson

    could be one of the 13, why not

  • El poncho

    No el Mehico!! Mi Trumpo!!

  • Mike L

    Why, who is buying electric crap?

  • Ed Nolan

    You go Hybrid on the Mustang and I’ll never buy another. I won’t drive a hopped up Prius.

  • smartacus

    what will it do to the weight distribution of the stang?

  • John L

    I wouldn’t worry about it. It’s not coming out until 2020. You’ll probably be in the nursing home by then.

  • TheBigGuy

    I imagine it will be put on the 4 cyclinder when it goes for higher hp and will be on there solely so there is no turbo lag felt.

    To answer your question, true Americans. Folks for whom the notion that made america great, self-sufficiency is not dead. I made an investment in a roof utility system and now my life is powered by the sun. Just waiting for an efficient vehicle that fits what I like to do; F150 looks like the ticket.

    Why are you still content to pay some utility corporation for your electricity instead of doing for yourself, living self-sufficiently? Self-sufficiency it is an American ideal.

    Mazda does not currently sell a pickup truck in the USA.

    For the most part its people who are bad at math that buy electric vehicles. If you ask around very few people have any idea what it costs to charge an electric vehicle. I would say most think its free.I came across a group of Tesla drivers in California who have been meticulously calculating their costs to charge and they say cost to operate is equivalent to a car that gets 22 mpg. that’s not a cost a cost savings for most.and the $1800 per month car payment is unrealistic for most Americans. Then the environmental impact factor people think and electric vehicle has no emissions but most electricity is created by burning fossil fuels. Hybrids are a little better but still you give up a lot when you buy one in terns of performance and safety. I live in Minnesota and you can’t buy a Ford AWD hybrid. For me the jury is still out on these new vehicles obviously we dont know the specs so I can’t make an informed opinion.

  • Josh Cooper

    Exactly. It’s probably not because they didn’t want the burden of counting all that money.
