Affleck’s Ford is a product of Ford Motor Company’s licensed brand, Gateway Bronco, which does classic Bronco restorations and mods, autoevolution reports.

Affleck’s Bronco features a design rooted in the first generation of the vehicle line.

These distinctive first-generation design elements include Seafoam Green paint, black soft top and sleek red center hub caps.

Gateway Bronco replaced Ford’s inline 6 or V8 engine with an electric motor.

This electric motor produces 295 horsepower and accelerates from 0 to 60mph in about 4.7 seconds.

Another new electric vehicle from Affleck, Rivian’s R1S, could serve as an alternative Batmobile for the actor’s on-screen superhero role.

The R1S has two electric motors producing around 600 horsepower.

Depending on the battery pack, Affleck’s R1S can drive a movie star 260-321 miles on a single charge.

For 2021, Rivian’s R1T wins MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year award.

Rivian’s R1T is similar to the R1S, but features an open bed that is more reminiscent of a pickup.

While celebrities like Affleck are promoting Rivian for free, the time is ticking for America’s electric-car manufacturing startup.

Rivian produced vehicles at about $220,000 apiece and sold models for an average of $81,000 apiece during the third quarter, losing about $139,000 per sale, Reuters reports.

Rivian’s cash reserves could sustain the company through 2025, Yahoo reports.
