Pick-up trucks and climate politics: will American drivers go electric?

The Ford factory complex in Dearborn, Michigan has sprawled alongside the River Rouge for more than a century. It first made ships, then parts for Henry Ford’s wildly successful Model T and then began producing the T’s successor in 1928. An industrial temple of an earlier age, Ford built the 2,000-acre site to vertically integrate his company’s operations. Raw materials flowed to the complex by freighter and railroad from an army of 6,000 suppliers.
