Nov. 8, 2021—Ford built a one-off concept truck based on the 1978 F-100 pickup to display at The SEMA Show.

The truck is powered by two electric motors to make 480hp. The platform comes from Ford's EV crate motor, called Eluminator. It's a transverse-oriented EV powertrain that retails at around $3,900.

“Ford owners have personalized, customized and enhanced their vehicles since the beginning – from changing looks to bringing the power,” said Eric Cin, global director, vehicle personalization, accessories and licensing, in a press release. “Our F-100 Eluminator concept is a preview of how we’re supporting customers as they go all-electric and embrace zero-tailpipe emissions performance, even for our heritage vehicles.”
