Ford released a few more details about the upcoming 2020 F150 Hybrid. Ford made several announcements at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) that have to do with electrification of their cars and trucks. The company is investing $11 Billion in order to bring 40 different electrified vehicle nameplates to market by 2022.

Turbo-diesel half-ton trucks are all the latest rage, but Ford has not forgotten about electrification.

A big part of the electrification push is the F-150 Hybrid that will be produced at Ford’s┬áDearborn Truck Plant. Ford says the truck will be in production in 2020. Ford says the truck will be able to “bring the tools to the job site, and also power that job site.”

Ford showed a quick video featuring a white F-150 truck that was presumed to be a hybrid, and which was powering a TV showing a football game during a black out.

Here are a few snapshots from that video.
