Ford Acquired Electriphi to Benefit Commercial Customers

Ford announced it acquired Electriphi, a California-based software company that specializes in charging management and monitoring electric vehicle fleets. Electriphi will be rolled into a new global Ford business called Ford Pro, which is devoted to enhancing the experience of the growing number of commercial customers who are adding electric vehicles to their fleets.

With the F-150 Lightning Pro and E-Transit cargo van already in Ford’s production pipeline, enhancing its EV commercial business was the obvious next step for Ford to take. Ford Pro expects that by 2030, the software that Electriphi developed will help it earn more than $1 billion in revenue from charging alone. A driving force will be the evolution of the depot charging industry, which Ford Pro estimates will grow to more than 600,000 full-size trucks and vans in the coming decade.

Ford Pro CEO Ted Cannis, said, “With Electriphi’s existing advanced technology IP in the Ford Pro electric vehicles and services portfolio, we will enhance the experience for commercial customers and be a single-source solution for fleet-depot charging.”

If you’re looking to add an electric vehicle to your fleet, Ford has got you covered. Learn more about the F-150 Lightning Pro, E-Transit cargo van, and Ford Pro commercial technologies by contacting Two Rivers Ford in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.

New Electric F-150 Could Debut In 2021

At the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, Ford announced its plans to build a new electric F-150 and a hybrid model of the legendary truck in the near future. While there’s still a lot unknown about the fully electric model, an “Automotive News Canada” report details that the truck could potentially make its debut in 2021. 

Two Additional Crossovers

The report also proclaims that there will be two additional crossovers in the lineup. These two trucks will possibly be released in 2022. 

Electic F-150 Rumors

Ford hinted at the electric F-150 back in July with a video that showed the F-150 towing over one million pounds. At the time, Ford never revealed what the pickup was being powered by. According to “Automotive News Canada,” the video increased interest in the truck.

Potential Features

Not much more information is available about the EV truck. However, there are rumors that the pickup could have a 12-inch infotainment screen. There could also be a new 4.8-liter V8 engine that could reach 420 horsepower. The truck will also likely have an updated appearance.

We at Two Rivers Ford are excited for the up-and-coming electric Ford F-150 and other electric models. We encourage you to stop by our dealership to take our other Ford models out for test drives.
