Pick Ups have been the big hit for decades and the F-100 as the forerunner of the bestseller F-15. At special request, the classic is now also available with an electric drive – and what kind of one.
At first glance, the bright US pick up looks like a normal F-100 from 1978. Okay, he is apparently not on the road with the original chassis and the condition is despite the more than 40 years on the hump of a new car. The fact that this F-100 does not wear a exhaust and pushers a loading flap on the left front fender is unlikely to stand out when contact.
Classic Ford pickup pimped with electric drive
But this is precisely why this Ford F-100 of the Custom series is a real show and of course it is powered electrically-with the technology of the recently presented Ford Mustang Mach-e GT performance. In addition to a small loading compartment, there is all sorts of cables and one of the two electric motors under the large bonnet-but no trace of a grumbling V6 or even a bassy V8 petrol engine. The two electric motors on the front and rear axles provide an impressive 356 kW / 480 hp and an opulent torque of up to 860 Nm. Usually the 100 series of Ford F produced from 1973 to 1980 was driven by V6 and V8 engines up to 7.5 liters of displacement.

Advertisement “Ford owners have personalized, individualized and improved their vehicles from the start – from changing appearance to increasing performance", says Eric Cin, responsible for individualization and accessories, “Our F-100 Eluminator concept is a foretaste of how we support our customers in switching to fully electric drives and in the introduction of zero-tail pipe emissions; Even with our historical vehicles."

The American Ford departments Vehicle Personalization and Performance Parts offer their customers completely new opportunities to customize their own vehicle-whether classic or current car-.
With electric drive, classics should live longer
The auto -giant from Dearborn increasingly wants to do a business and also offer tuning parts for its future electric vehicles in order to keep the fans of the Blue Oval happy. No wonder, because worldwide the industry for tuning parts and accessories generates around $ 50 billion annually.

Single piece from the performance department
The fully electric F-100 Eluminator single piece was developed by the Ford Performance Department, which the experts from MLE Racecars and the Roadster Shop used. The electro-pick-up was painted in light gray with subtle copper elements, while in the inside aluminum and avocado tanned real leather specify the sound. Controls and fittings also come from the Ford Mustang Mach-e. To do this, the power pick-up rolls on three-part 19×10-inch alloy wheels with high-speed tires in the format 275/45 R 19. However, it will not stay with the one-off of the Ford F-100 Eluminator.
The e-crate engine built into it with the part number M-9000-Mach-E is now available from authorized Ford dealers or online from Ford Performance Parts. With a sales price of $ 3,900, he is aimed at hobbyists who are looking for a transverse drive train to electrify a number of vehicles, from modern vehicles to classic cars, trucks and SUVs.
The electricity fun costs $ 3900 – plus battery
Each Eluminator E-Cross Motor produces 281 hp and a torque of 425 Nm and is at least in all 50 US states. It won’t be long before these first vehicles come to Europe. Fans of American pick ups are available here – and they can now also switch to electric drives.

That would be a brilliant plan: taxation by weight ! Idea is great !!!! Will probably … Unfortunately not coming, you definitely don’t want that "Climate car" ancient…..
I hope so
Comes the taxation by weight. What nonsense to electrify such sheet debris. If you want to drive something like that, you should be allowed to do it. But then please increase the park for public parking to € 3650.00. That would be 10 euros a day. Completely reasonable.
The following instead of a hiche is given to these new cars. And why should you not keep your old license plate if you have the following license plate, for example,. AB-01 2345 then on the E or H vehicle with rights: so off-01 2345 h/e, there is enough space, the euro sign can go away, and make an h or e over the D. Why doesn’t that work, because in a few years there will be tens of million e-vehicles trucks, cars, motorcycles, small vans…Let’s see what this authority is responsible for the license plates.
And now something for our normal cars with OBD2 with all reports for our TuV and Co for 3.900 euros… Well there is no and there will be no. We should always buy new. Lawying does not fit into the German economic system. Then you wonder if the Germans prefer to use the Far East more cheaper manufacturers. The East Asians can also bend sheets. The rest are already largely from China and the surrounding area.
Giving an electric motor is like the replica of the Matterhorn in Disneyland, it has nothing to do with originality. Real classic car lovers can only smile with pity.
You just want to drive the much larger amount of friends of these vehicles and have been leaving for a long time "unoriginal" accelerate. Electricity is not a problem either.
..the once cozy nostalgic interior was changed – the continuous front bench ! Big minus point
I will be my V8
Remove my 69 Mustang convertible and then have electric motors installed… But that only happens when my brain was amputated and put me massively under drugs
They also like the H-outdoor petting of the 69er?
They don’t guide them into the interior or? I listen and smell the 1969er towards a 2021.
and now ? Everything is on order. The e-kits actually sold would be interesting. I’m afraid that is limited…. Site, you can determine the real numbers ?
