Discover the new electric Ford F-150 soon at Chartrand Ford in Laval, Ford dealership near Montreal

Since the end of the 20th century, the increase in the price of crude oil and environmental issues have pushed the automotive industry to develop new, more fuel-efficient technologies in order to generate less greenhouse gas emissions. In Canada, the transportation industry is responsible for almost a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions. This worrying environmental context is pushing car manufacturers to do more to improve our planet's situation. Ford is among them and directs its engineers to work hard to gradually transition the company towards hybrid and electric vehicles. Chartrand, your Ford car dealer par excellence on the North Shore, located in Laval, just a few minutes away from Montreal, remains on the lookout for these advanced technologies.

As you know, hybrid electric vehicles are a viable and powerful solution to our environmental issues. By combining an electric motor and a combustion engine, these vehicles have a great potential to reduce fuel consumption without sacrificing autonomy. The presence of two engines and two energy sources requires a controller called the energy management system, which is responsible for the simultaneous control of both engines. The performance of the vehicle in terms of consumption depends in part on the design of this controller. Rechargeable hybrid electric vehicles, which are newer than their non-rechargeable equivalent, distinguish themselves by the addition of an internal charger allowing the battery to recharge while the vehicle is stationary, thus slowing the discharge of the battery during a trip. Ford offers a very complete range of hybrid vehicles, but also covets the side of electrification 2.0.

The American manufacturer pushes the ingenuity even further by considering the electrification of the different versions of its F-150 trucks. The architecture of electric vehicles remains relatively simple: electrical energy is provided by a battery that can power an electric engine with one or more power converters. Until now, this technology was mainly used on small vehicles designed for urban travel. Ford is interested in this technology and is now trying to use it on its F-150 trucks. A team of experienced engineers is exploring the idea of having a more powerful battery in these vehicles with increased autonomy. Since the Ford F-150 is a powerful, high-performance truck, and the best in its segment for more than 50 years, designing an electric model that is equally enticing for the customer represents a great challenge. In addition, battery cost analyzes are currently underway, as we know that their price remain relatively high. One thing is certain, the technological advances now allow Ford to consider the electrification of its F-150 trucks.

Ford is forward-thinking and looks towards the future as many continue to think the same old way. The electric movement is on and it's stronger than ever, and it's about to spark a debate about garage spaces or parking lanes in the United States and Canada. Ford surprises us again and again by creating entirely new segments, like SUVs and electric-powered trucks. Confident of winning with a larger vehicle, Ford launches into a still-virgin trail now by betting on an electric F-150.


An electric version of the best-selling truck of all time will certainly attract consumers within a few years. Its configuration and price are not yet defined, but the architecture takes shape and the American giant intends to surprise us with its high-performance electric propulsion.

Ford vehicles of tomorrow, Ford trucks, and especially the Ford F-150, will be even more innovative without sacrificing their efficiency and power. Chartrand Ford, your Ford car dealer on the North Shore, has long been providing you with the best prices, the best service and an experienced team to answer all your questions.

The future of our American carmaker goes through a constant improvement of its vehicles, the marketing of new hybrid and electric vehicles (Ford Fusion, Ford Escape, etc.) and the marketing, in a segment still unexploited by the electrification, of SUVs and trucks. The F-150 has been at the heart of the company's success for more than 50 years, and the electrification of the model is likely to bring it to another stage in its evolution.
