Sam Abuelsamid

Sam says that the Ford F series is traditionally the top-selling brand in the US for over 40 decades. Ford builds one F150 every hour. This year, along with BMW, Ford is developing electronics that will enable over the air software updates, and at 200 teraflops, the F150 will be as powerful as a supercomputer. One upcoming feature will be the active driver system that's available on the Mustang Mach E.  That will make Ford's F150 one of the first trucks with hands-free operability. 

Ford is also going to offer a hybrid F150, which will enable users to use the Ford F150 motor as a power generator for work, and a fully electric F150 in 2022.
