Didn't realize the full electric F-150 was coming next year. So it'll beat the Tesla Cybertruck to market but will come after Rivian. I wonder if it helps or hurts more to be later to market in this new electric pickup space.

I think for Tesla and Rivian who both are untested in the truck space, waiting to see what Ford brings with the BEV F-150 would be wise. This is Ford's crown jewel and they're pushing all in on electric so you know they are going to bring it strong.

Both the Rivian R1T and electric F-150 are scheduled for later this year so it'll be interesting to see who hits the market first. At this point, both are close enough to launch where it doesn't matter which one launches first since it's too late to make significant engineering changes in response each other.

Ford certainly has more brand loyalists, and the electric F150 will likely be more suitable to current 'truck people', but my two questions are (1) do those Ford brand loyalists want a BEV F-150, or will they stick with ICE? and (2) Can Ford manufacture enough BEV batteries/motors to outsell Tesla? The 50k production limit of the Mach E could point to manufacturing/sourcing limitations.

Why does Ford need to outsell Tesla? It begs the question whether they will even breakout the Electric F150 sales. They will likely just be rolled into overall F150 sales numbers. Being the #1 selling vehicle for 35 (?) years straight, I dont think Ford is concerned since it's all gravy to them. On the other hand for Tesla, not only is there fierce competition but if overall EV adoption for pickups remains small they lose no matter what.

I believe Ford stated the 50,000 production limit for Mach-E was for the first year only. The electric P702 F-150 won't be out for another two years before it reaches production (I believe) so Ford has time to address the battery supply issues.
