Ford F-150 Lightning Gets 320-mile EPA Official Range Estimate

Ford updates Lightning range

  • 320 miles of range for LR versions of Lightning

  • Some trim levels offer 20 miles more than previous estimates


Ford’s range estimates for the F-150 Lightning have turned from internal estimates to official government figures ahead of the launch of the electric pickup this spring. For most trucks, the final figures are better than the original estimates, with a peak of 320 miles (518 km).

The EPA range figures were initially revealed by Ford CEO Jim Farley. The exec posted them this morning to Twitter, showing that social media EV reveals might become common for automakers other than Tesla and its CEO Elon Musk, famous for Tweeting some very significant new vehicle info.

“We are laser focused on continually improving our energy consumption efficiency for Lightning and the team is really happy to deliver these results for our customers,” said Linda Zhang, chief program engineer, F-150 Lightning.

The SR Ford F-150 Lightning Pro has an EPA range of 230 miles (373 km), with the fleet-only ER estimated to get 320 miles.

On the consumer side, F-150 Lightning SR trucks in XLT and Lariat both have EPA estimates of 230 miles with the ER versions at 320. The top-of-the-line F-150 Lightning Platinum has an EPA estimate of 300 miles (486 km).
