Ford let it be known in mid-January 2019 that they have an electric pickup truck in the works. Now, just weeks later, our first spy shots of a mule. We've had assorted lithium battery vehicles on the road for about a decade now but no pickups. That's shaping up to change. Besides this Ford program, the adventure-oriented Rivian R1T is slated for production, and the Tesla Truck is also in the works. Personally, I think that later vehicle will provide the strongest competition for Ford. The Rivian is pretty awesome, but not quite full size. I expect the Tesla will be, as will the Ford. It's going to take some time for either of those machines to come to market, and so Rivian may actually be the first available.
