It looks like Ford is bringing back the F-150 Lightning name that it used for the high-performance F-150 back in the 1990s. This time though the name will be used for the electric F-150.
Ford has yet to announce the return of the Lightning name, but an unnamed source provided the tip to Car and Driver. The name was shared in a document that also references the Mustang Mach-E electric crossover and the E-Transit electric cargo van.
We should hear more about the F-150 Lightning soon, since it’s slated to arrive in mid-2022.
