Its capacity will be 131 kWh.
The regular Lightning holds a 98-kWh battery good for 230 miles of range.
Ford has 200,000 reservations for the Lightning and won’t take anymore.
Every step taken by Ford in relation to the hotly-anticipated all-electric F-150 Lightning is newsworthy. Of them all, the available extended range battery size may very well be the most important.
As we know, the standard battery will have a 98-kWh capacity which Ford predicts will enable the truck to travel 230 miles on a full charge. This unit will be included with the Lightning Pro, the XLT, and the Lariat.
As an option on the XLT and Lariat, and as standard with the Platinum model, a 131-kWh battery will power the electric motors. On a full charge, Ford stipulates that they are targeting 300 miles of range.
As pointed out by Endgadget, and although Ford has yet to disclose the Lightning’s price range, the Blue Oval has hinted that the Standard Range Lightning Pro is expected to start at $39,974 in the US. This is impressively inexpensive when compared to the Hyundai Kona EV which, at $34,000, holds a 64-kWh battery pack. Consumers will pay between $42,000 and $90,000 with the electric truck.
