If you’ve been anticipating the arrival of Ford’s all-electric pickup truck, you won’t have to wait much longer. The F-150 Lightning debuts this spring, and this powerful pickup is set to send shockwaves through the automotive industry with its serious muscle and efficient electric engineering. The F-150 Lightning is capable of traveling hundreds of miles on a charge, all while also packing all the strength you need for intense towing and hauling duties.
Ford’s all-electric F-150 Lightning revives a name from a unique entry in the Ford lineup, the sport-focused Lightning truck of the early 1990s, but everything from its innovative engineering to its incredible performance is on the cutting edge. When equipped with the available Extended-Range battery, the F-150 Lightning is capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds. When properly set up for hauling, the truck can also carry up to 2,000 pounds in its truck bed. Ford offers a couple of powertrain options for the debut model, starting with the Standard-Range battery, whose motors generate a hearty 426 horsepower. The available Extended-Range battery cranks out a herculean 563 horsepower with 775 lb-ft of torque.
Charging Made Easy
You can skip the gas pump altogether when you go electric, and powering up your truck is as easy as plugging into the wall at home. When you park your pickup at home, the Ford Charge Station Pro can bring your battery back to 100 percent overnight. When it’s time to hit the road, you can count on the BlueOval Charge Network for more than 70,000 chargers across the U.S. That’s among the most expansive charging networks in North America. The F-150 Lightning also provides backup power when you need it, as it can act as a generator if the power goes out at home.
