Electric Ford F-150 Lightning Strikes Next Week

Lightning coming without thunder

  • First all-EV F-150 reveal happens May 19

  • Electric version of best-selling pickup could be next-level for EVs


Ford‘s first-ever all-electric F-150 will be revealed in a live event next week. The brand is bringing back one of the pickup’s most iconic names to go with it, so say hello to the Ford F-150 Lightning.

The reveal will take place on the evening of May 19th from Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, MI. The automaker will broadcast it through more than 30 channels including Facebook, YouTube, and locations like Times Square and Las Vegas Boulevard.

“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 favourite 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.”

A teaser video shows a long history of Ford trucks dating all the way back to the company’s beginning. Watch that clip closely, and on the right you’ll spot the two previous iterations of the Ford F-150 Lightning. The first the 1993-1995 model that Ford SVT built with a 5.8L V8 and the F-350’s manual transmission as well as the 1999-2004 version with a flareside bed and a supercharged 5.4L V8.

What will power this latest model? A whole lot of electrons, and while the automaker hasn’t shared more with us just yet, we have seen a prototype tow 1.25 million pounds of train and truck already.

Production of the F-150 lightning starts next spring at Ford’s Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.
