DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. said it’s doubling its investment in electric and hybrid vehicles and plans to introduce 40 by 2022.

Among them: A hybrid version of the F-150 pickup truck that is due out in 2020.

In 2015, Ford pledged to invest $4.5 billion to develop 13 electric and hybrid vehicles by 2020. At the Detroit auto show Sunday, the company said it’s doubling that to $11 billion. It plans to bring out 24 hybrids and 16 electric vehicles by 2022.

Ford’s global markets chief said many current Ford vehicles, like its best-selling F-150, will get hybrid or electric versions.

“We want to make a statement about the company that we’re electrifying our iconic vehicles,” James D. Farley Jr. said.
