Ford says it will add 300 jobs at a new fac­tory that’s be­ing built to as­sem­ble bat­ter­ies and man­u­fac­ture an elec­tric ver­sion of the F-150 pickup truck.

The new plant is be­ing built in Dear­born, Michi­gan, where Ford is start­ing to pro­duce a new ver­sion of the F-150 that’s due in show­rooms this Novem­ber.

Ford’s F-se­ries pickup is the top-sell­ing ve­hi­cle in the US with nearly 900,000 sold last year.

Ford says the new elec­tric truck will go on sale in mid-2022. The com­pany says it’s in­vest­ing $700 mil­lion in its Rouge fac­tory com­plex to make the new trucks. Ford also plans a plug-in gas-elec­tric hy­brid ver­sion. (AP)
