The Ford F-150 Lightning is an all-electric version of America’s bestselling vehicle, marking a significant step in Ford’s transformation into an electric car maker. With impressive power, range, and advanced features, the F-150 Lightning is set to revolutionize the pickup truck market and lead the way in sustainable transportation.
Power and Performance
Equipped with a dual-motor powertrain, the F-150 Lightning offers full-time four-wheel drive and is the most powerful F-150 ever produced. The standard battery pack generates 452 hp, while the extended-range battery delivers a whopping 580 hp, along with 775 ft lbs of torque. This electric powerhouse can tow up to 10,000 pounds and carry a maximum payload of more than 2,200 pounds, making it a formidable competitor in the pickup truck market.
Range and Charging
The F-150 Lightning boasts a range of up to 230 miles with the standard battery pack or 320 miles with the extended-range battery. Charging options include a standard Level 2 charger or a DC fast charger, which can provide up to 80% charge in just 41 minutes. Ford also offers a mobile charging solution called the Ford Charge Station Pro for convenient at-home charging. With access to the BlueOval™Charging Network, North America’s largest public charging network, finding a charging station is easier than ever.
The F-150 Lightning comes with a host of advanced features, including a front trunk that can fit extra gear weighing up to 400 pounds, and the Pro Power onboard capability that turns extended-range-battery models into generators capable of powering a home or small office for up to three days. The truck also features advanced driver-assist systems, such as Blue Cruise with automated lane centering and steering capability.
Ford expects the bulk of F-150 Lightning sales to be in the commercial sector, where its impressive power, range, and eco-friendly credentials make it an attractive option for businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint. With a base price of $55,974, the F-150 Lightning is currently the least expensive electric pickup on the market, making it an appealing choice for both commercial and personal use.
