This study focuses on the economic and job implications of producing electric F-Series light
trucks, including the recently announced Ford F-150 Lightning, as a case study for the broader
electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing sector within the U.S. The findings of this study also
illustrate the potential impact on U.S. jobs and gross domestic product (GDP) associated with
growth of the domestic EV supply chain.
This report was developed by M.J. Bradley & Associates (MJB&A) for the Environmental
Defense Fund (EDF). Ford provided inputs and data consistent with Ford’s public
announcements and consulted with EDF and MJB&A on the reasonableness of the
assumptions used in the analysis.
