the 100% electric pick-up

Ford reinvents the F-150 with the arrival of the Lightning: the 100% electric version of its best-selling pickup!

It is an inevitable turn that car manufacturers must take: the electrification of their models. This task is all the more complicated when it comes for Ford to tackle its historic bestseller: the pickup. Ford F-150, the best-selling vehicle in the United States for 44 years!

By revealing the F-150 Lightning, Ford completes its most popular model with a 100% electric proposal, to maintain its leadership in the face of the arrival of new competitors such as the Tesla Cybertruck for example, not to mention the GMC Hummer EV which is making its big comeback in electric version.

Ford F-150 Lightning (2021): 563 hp and 1050 Nm of torque

Aesthetically, this F-150 Lightning is very close to the thermal model, and stands out especially with its specific full grille, surrounded by a distinctive LED light signature. Under the hood, the engine disappears and gives way to a large front trunk of 400 liters, which conceals electrical and USB outlets.

The electric motors are located on the axles, and two versions are offered: a first of 426 horsepower

, as well as a more powerful second, which develops 563 horsepower and 1050 Nm of torque. The battery allows range of up to 370 and 480 km depending on the version, and can be recharged in 14 hours on a domestic socket, or in 41 minutes on a 150 kW fast terminal. The F-150 Lightning can support up to 907 kg payload, tow up to 4,535 kg, and features a 9.6 kW bi-directional charging system that can accommodatepower your home for three days !
