Ford & Rivian Collaboration Won’t Lead To New Pickup?

By  | 

When it was revealed that Ford and Rivian will be working together to build a new electric vehicle, most people assume that the new vehicle will be an electric pickup truck but it looks like Ford might have something else in mind.

While they have no reveal what they will be working on, we do know that the new EV model will come riding on the skateboard platform by Rivain. This week, Jim Hackett, CEO of Ford added that we should not assume that it is going to be a pickup so it looks like a truck is out of the picture for now.

With Ford already making it clear that they do not want to be working on sedans and hatchback, most poeple now believe that the new model will most likely be a crossover model but for now, that is all Hackett is willing to say about the upcoming model.

It made sense that truck is out of the picture since Ford will be releasing an EV Ford F-150 soon while Rivian will also have their own electric truck to offer.
