Well guys, I hate to kill your skepticism, but Ford, rivian, and Tesla are going to be having a 3 way tug of war on battery electric trucks. The corporation I work for just got budget approval for a couple of new assembly lines in Kentucky. Ford and rivian are going all in on this venture. We will be building the front frame modules for rivian and the exoskeleton midsection that houses the battery array. We will be building the whole f150 battery electric vehicle frames in the same building. My guess is that Ford will be assembling the battery f150s in Louisville next to the other high performance and super duty trucks. They're shooting for a 2021 model year launch, after the pre-production vehicles get put through the proving grounds and everything gets 5 stars on the dukes of Hazzard, offset airborne, demolition derby crash testing process. Yeee haw!
