What good is an electric Ford F-150 pickup truck if it can't slice through snowy obstacles with as much ease as the conventional F-150? To prove that it can, and can just as easily, the American car maker recently released a video in which the e-F-150 prototype is seen painting a white landscape red with its capabilities.

Even though not much is known about the electric powertrain of the battery-powered F-150, the upcoming vehicle clearly has some major skills when it comes to tackling snowy and snowed-out road conditions. And that could well be crucial as the electric F-150 hopes to challenge the mighty likes of GM's Hummer EV and the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck.

The wait for an electric F-150 though is likely to continue for now with multiple reports suggesting that while Ford is looking at a roll-out before the end of 2021, ground realities mean it could well be into early 2022 before customers welcome it. Ford has already started creating a buzz with company officials saying that more than a lifestyle pickup truck, the electric F-150 will be a workhorse with capabilities to perform in almost any conditions and on most terrain.
