Is Anyone Making an Electric Pickup Truck?

The electric pickup truck has been a long time coming. It has been on the minds of those in the automotive industry for some years now, but no one has been able to make a production-ready model that can compete with the current gas-powered offerings. Now, however, it seems that several manufacturers are finally making strides towards making an electric pickup truck a reality.

Most recently, Tesla Motors made headlines when they unveiled their concept design for an all-electric pickup truck. The vehicle was designed to be both rugged and luxurious, with an impressive range of up to 500 miles per charge. This would put it on par with many of the current gas-powered pickups available today.

Other manufacturers have also been working on electric pickup trucks. Ford recently revealed its plans for an all-electric F-150 pickup truck, which is expected to hit markets as early as 2021.

GMC is also reportedly working on an all-electric Sierra pickup that could debut as soon as 2020.

Currently, there are no fully electric pickups available in the US market, but that could change soon. Several manufacturers are making strides towards bringing electric pickups to market, and with continued advancements in battery technology and charging infrastructure, it won’t be long before we see them on the roads.


It is clear that several major automakers are working hard to bring an electric pickup truck to market. With advancements in battery technology and charging infrastructure continuing to improve, it is only a matter of time before we see these vehicles on our roads. So the answer is yes – someone is making an electric pickup truck!
