Ginny Says

“Huge pick ups like the F150 might only seem relevant in the wide open spaces of the US, but some of the technology and design features can already be seen in vehicles such as the new electric Transit.”

Nicki Says

“While the Tesla Cybertruck is still science fiction and Rivian can only deliver tiny numbers, the F150 is a sure sign that electric pick ups are not just an impossible - or impractical - dream.”

What is the Ford F-150 Lightning? 

It’s a new electric version of a pick-up truck made by Ford which has been the best-selling vehicle in the US since 1981. So it's big news.

How long will a Ford F-150 Lightning last before it becomes a useless piece of scrap? 

This depends heavily on driving habits, like the amount of heavy-duty work carried out on a daily basis, or how much off-roading is done. Generally speaking, Ford estimates the body and battery will last for 150,000 to 300,000 miles before it will be ready for recycling, or in the case of the battery, a second life. 

How many miles can a Ford F-150 Lightning do before it needs to be charged? 

You can expect 229 miles of range from the entry level F-150, which increases to 310 miles with the top-of-the-range version. An 80% rapid charge can be achieved in 40 minutes, regardless of trim level. 

How many trim levels does the Ford F-150 Lightning have? 

At launch, the F-150 Lightning will have four trim levels that range in price from around $40,000 (£32,000), to over $90,000 (£72,000). Those trim levels from entry to highest are: F-150 Lightning Pro, F-150 Lightning XLT, F-150 Lightning Lariat and F-150 Lightning Platinum. 

Will the Ford F-150 Lightning come to the UK? 

Ford have already dismissed any possibilities of the F-150 arriving in the United Kingdom, mainly because it is already sold out for two years in the US. But technology will be used to update Ford vehicles in the UK market, such as the Ranger.
