BluOvalSK is the name of the joint venture and the Georgia-based manufacturing facility aims to deliver 60 gigawatts of cells each year at full capacity. The Mustang Mach-E, by comparison, is powered by LG Chem. The Korean supplier assembles battery cells at the Wroclaw plant in Poland, the facility which is also responsible for the battery cells of the E-Transit van.
By turning our attention back to the F-150 Lightning, the Ford Motor Company has a huge advantage over General Motors, Tesla and Rivian. For one thing, the blue oval pickup is very affordable at $ 39,974 for the base, commercial-oriented model with a range of 230 miles (370 kilometers), while the Hummer Edition 1 costs $ 112,595 in its first year of production. The odd-looking Cybertruck is nowhere to be found, and Rivian lacks Ford, GM, or Tesla’s experience selling or servicing electric vehicles.
