I didn't catch this electric-only range estimate in the Car and Driver article until reading it again. They're estimating about 10 miles of pure electric range.

Ford also will offer the first plug-in hybrid in the half-ton-truck market, with an electric motor sandwiched between a turbo V-6 and a 10-speed auto. Electric range will probably exceed 10 miles but only when commuting unladen. Do F-150 buyers really want a truck with a plug? Ford is doubling down that they will.

Ford said yesterday it won’t be a plug in hybrid. It will be the same as the new explorer hybrid but could also be utilized as a mobile generator

Yep, it's listed in the VIN decoder as a "HEV" and not "PHEV."

People are making a big deal out of Car and Driver's estimate of 10 miles electric range but I think they're just guessing. Fact that they got the PHEV (instead of HEV) info wrong doesn't help their credibility.

Yes, but it also doesn't help that Ford's PR team is difficult to deal with, giving no info whatsoever but then calling out media outlets when they're suppositions or postulations are wrong.

Am I missing something because I really don’t get this.

I mean,, why go through all of this expense and complexity for just 10 miles of range on electric.

It looks like Ford already debunked this article and stated that it will not be a plug in hybrid. It seems the hybrid will be more about towing capacity while also being able to act as a mobile generator. It's a smart move IMO since there will be a full EV version offered.

I am very interested in this Hybrid set up. I can't wait to see the specs and pricing.
