The new Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck
With the new F-150 Lightning, Ford is presenting an electric version to its bestseller pickup from spring 2022. The classic Ford F-150 was the top-selling car in the United States for almost a century.

A success that the electric version should build on. For this, the carmaker refrains from optical experiments and relies on familiar proportions and a newly developed electric drive. As with the normal F-150, there is an aluminium body and independent wheel suspension as well as the four driving programs: normal, sport, off-road and traction. The newly acquired frunk holds 400 litres in the F-150 Lighting electric pickup truck.

The Ford F-150 Lightning attracts attention with its low prices. The basic F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck version has a price of just under $ 40,000.

While the previous F-series pick-ups had gasoline and diesel engines with a power range of just under 300 to over 700 hp, the F-150 Lightning is powered by electric power. The basic model delivers 318 kW (432 hp), the larger version, on the other hand, has an impressive 420 kW (571 hp) and 1,050 Nm of torque. For this tremendous performance, the Ford F-150 is required to be on the road with an all-wheel drive and can pull trailers weighing more than 4.5 tons. No other electric car in the world can currently do that. From a standing start, it should accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 5 seconds.
