The New Ford F-150 Lightning Will Be Electric

Not a shock: the anticipated fully-electric Ford F-150 will be called Lightning  


  • The opportunity could not be passed up by Ford.

  • The new Lightning will easily carry the performance torch from the original SVT trucks.


The Ford F-150 Lightning was a rarity in the early 1990s when it was introduced. As a hot-rodded pickup, it became immensely famous for being O’Connor’s daily driver. A second generation was introduced but it dropped from the lineup almost 17 years ago. It will return next year as the fully electric pickup from Ford.

It was written in the stars: Ford will revive the Lightning name when they launch the new electric F-150 next year. This decision will instantly catapult the electric F-150 to top-of-mind for all potential electric truck shoppers, at least on par with the GMC Hummer EV but well ahead of the Tesla Cybertruck and any other possible competitors.

New All-Electric Ford F-150 Will Be The Most Powerful Of Its Kind Ever

According to Car And Driver, Ford would not confirm that the Lightning name would officially return but a document displayed the new name alongside a reference to the Mustang Mach E and E-Transit electric cargo van.

What’s assumed is that the Ford F-150 Lightning will be powered by a pair of electric motors, for an AWD setup, and be capable of up to 300 miles between full charges. It is expected to arrive in mid-2022.
