Ford warns its upcoming Rivian-based EV won't necessarily be a pickup

The electric F-150 that Ford showed pulling a train might not emerge from the company's partnership with Rivian after all. Company CEO Jim Hackett confirmed the Blue Oval's $500 million investment in the Michigan-based start-up will spawn a new car, but he warned against speculating it's a truck. "You shouldn't go down the path of assuming it's a pickup," he told Motor Trend during an interview.
