At this point in time, it's evidently clear Ford is moving fast with its electrification plans. Earlier this week, it announced the new Ford Model e and Ford Blue divisions, essentially splitting the company in two with dedicated departments running the EV and ICE programs. This will allow Ford to remain competitive in the global market for both powertrain technologies.

But electrification is the long-term goal and now the Blue Oval has released the results of a study it conducted with the University of Michigan regarding reductions in greenhouse gas emissions relative to gasoline-powered pickup trucks. In short, the new Ford F-150 Lightning is more environmentally friendly than its ICE-powered counterparts. The study found that EV trucks will emit 64 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than ICE trucks from the "cradle to the grave," which is from production to, eventually, the junkyard.
