Ford unveils an electric pickup that carries the design of the ’70s. It looks like a retro-futuristic dream and it is based on the 1978 Ford F-100 pickup. Reports suggest it is an all-wheel-drive F-100 Eluminator. The car churns out 480 horsepower and features Ford Performance Parts Eluminator electric crate motor. As of now, Ford unveils an electric pickup just as a concept. It has showcased the different aesthetics that can be applied to EVs of the future.

Ford believes that F-100 Eluminator is an example of how they can preserve heritage models, and go fully electric. The ’70s have given audiences a lot of retro-looking models, but on the downside, they were fossil-powered gas guzzlers. Enthusiasts could very well revel in the groovy ’70s look and be eco-sensitive at the same time. The vehicle showcased sported a grey paint scheme. A newer and more interesting paint job will definitely spice things up.

Also, by investing $3,900 one can get the Eluminator motor to electrify any heritage car. Now is the best time to get vintage with an electric heart. Electrics are definitely better suited for our environment, but the heavily futuristic design does not go as per everybody’s taste. Ford’s latest concept could prove to be a possible solution for embracing unconventional design elements.

Ford officials stated that the F-100 Eluminator concept is just a preview. They are supporting customers as they go all-electric and embrace zero-tailpipe emissions, even for heritage vehicles. Being a concept going to Ford’s dealership will be futile as they won’t be showcasing the F-100 Eluminator. To get a brand new 70’s based electric pickup out of the production line will demand some waiting. Nonetheless, this concept certainly will project the F-100 as a likable alternative to petrol-powered cars.
