Ford announced that its upcoming electric pickup will be called the F-150 Lightning, as we first reported at the end of last month. The electric F-150 will be fully unveiled next week on Wednesday, May 19 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Ford’s YouTube channel, and it will go on sale in mid-2022.
Ford CEO Jim Farley says that the F-150 Lightning will be able to power homes accelerate quicker than the supercharged V-8–powered F-150 Lightnings of old, and improve with over-the-air updates. It will have a dual-motor setup providing all-wheel drive, and its battery pack should provide more than 300 miles of range given that the longest-range Mustang Mach-E is EPA-rated at 305 miles of driving range.
