It was reported that Ford is going to resurrect the “Lightning” name for the all-electric F-150 and now it’s confirmed it. Ford has announced that the F-150 Lightning electric pickup will debut on May 19.
“Every so often, a new vehicle comes along that disrupts the status quo and changes the game … Model T, Mustang, Prius, Model 3. Now comes the F-150 Lightning,” said Ford President and CEO Jim Farley. “America’s favorite vehicle for nearly half a century is going digital and fully electric. F-150 Lightning can power your home during an outage; it’s even quicker than the original F-150 Lightning performance truck; and it will constantly improve through over-the-air updates.”
Production of the F-150 Lightning will kick off in spring 2022. It will feature dual electric motors that will give it more horsepower and torque than any current F-150. It will also be able to serve as a mobile generator. In the front, the F-150 Lightning will also feature a frunk that has enough space to haul big objects.
