A hybrid full-size pickup is on the horizon and will be wearing a blue oval badge.
In an interview with NPR's All Things Considered, Ford CEO Mark Fields confirmed that a hybrid F-150 is coming.
"Well, we do have plans to have a rear-wheel drive hybrid truck but the end of the decade. So yes, we're working on electrified F-series, and it's really around a conventional hybrid," said Fields.
This follows comments made by Ford's development chief, Raj Nair last year when he said a rear-drive hybrid truck would come out in 2020. Nair also mentioned that hybrid SUVs are also on the way.
Before you think this is the result of Ford and Toyota's partnership to do hybrid pickups in 2010, it isn't. In 2013, the two automakers dissolved their partnership and went their separate ways.
