The American automobile manufacturer Ford brings back the classic F-100 pickup from 1978, but with a twist. It has converted the classic car to an electric drive with a new engine, which carmakers can now buy online. This electric vehicle promises to represent the future of the automobile. The truck has four-wheel drive via two Eluminator electric motors borrowed from the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition 2021. The motors drive the front and rear wheels, producing 480 horsepower and 634 lb.-ft. of the torque. Ford hopes that the vehicle will find buyers among people who want the classic retro look but with a view to the future.

The all-electric F-100 Eluminator concept has zero tailpipe emissions, says Ford. The truck is painted Avalanche Gray with Cerakote Copper accents, while the interior features a billet aluminum dashboard and avocado-tanned leather upholstery. The redesigned interior also features a digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment system display, with the wheel hub embossed with an F-100 logo.

The vehicle, built in partnership with MLe Racecars, features Forgeline three-piece 19×10-inch billet aluminum wheels wrapped in high-performance Michelin Latitude Sport 275 / 45-19 tires, Ford said in a statement.

The pick-up made its debut this week at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas.

“Our F-100 Eluminator concept is a taste of how we’re helping our customers go fully electric and achieve zero-emission performance, even on our historic vehicles,” said Eric Cin, global director, vehicle personalization, accessories and licensing at Ford. Cin added, “Our F-100 Eluminator concept is a preview of how we can help customers go fully electric and use the zero-tailpipe performance even on our historic vehicles.”

The Eluminator motors are priced at $ 3,900 (about Rs. 2.90 lakh) each. The additional kit requirement for the Ford Concept Electric Vehicle is not currently available but will be added later.

With the advance towards electrification, Ford Performance plans to develop components for the Eluminator powertrain. Mark Rushbrook, Global Director of Ford Performance, said, “Electric performance is fun,” adding, “As the industry moves towards electric vehicles, so will motorsport and the performance aftermarket”.
