Electrifying an Automotive Classic

Learn how University of Michigan Engineering alumni, Linda Zhang, has utilized her experience in manufacturing and engineering to become a driving force in the creation of an iconic electric vehicle — the F-150 Lighting.

“When you think of EVs, you don’t typically think of tough, of capable,” Zhang said . “A lot of people immediately think of a vehicle like the early Prius models. To bring people out of that mindset, we really needed to be able to demonstrate that EVs can be tough and that electric power is just as powerful, if not more so, than mechanical power.”
