2025 Ford F-Series Electric Pickup Truck – Ford announced Blue Oval City, a new EV hub in its EV-offensive series of announcements. The new generation Ford F-Series electric pickup trucks will be manufactured here in Stanton, Tennessee (Haywood County).
Blue Oval City, a 3,600-acre mega campus on the Memphis Regional Megasite, will be home to Blue Oval City. Ford isn’t the only one involved in this venture. It has partnered with SK Innovation South Korea for the mega project. Blue Oval City will be built by the companies. It will have a vehicle assembly plant as well as a supplier park and a battery manufacturing facility. BlueOvalSK will be the new joint venture company between Ford and SK Innovation that will own the battery manufacturing facility.

Once fully operational, the assembly plant will be carbon-neutral and produce no waste. According to the Tennessee government’s press release (via tn.gov), Ford intends to begin production of next-generation F-Series electric trucks in the state in 2025.

BlueOvalSK will also erect two Kentucky battery manufacturing plants, in addition to the Tennessee plant. The other two batteries will be housed in a facility called “BlueOvalSK Batterie Park”, which is located on a 1,551-acre property in Glendale (Hardin County). It costs USD 5.8 billion. Ford and SK Innovation will also contribute to this investment. BlueOvalSK’s two Kentucky battery plants will be open in 2025. They will produce 43 GWh each, and an additional 86 GWh per year. This site will likely be home to the batteries for all-electric vehicles, including the Louisville-made Ford Super Duty Trucks F-250-F-550, Ford Expedition, and Lincoln Navigator. Ford plans to convert at least 40% of global sales to electric vehicles by 2030. The new EV facilities will be instrumental in that transition.
