The Ford F-150 Lightning will Have an EPA Range of Up to 320 Miles

The EPA range for the Ford F-150 Lightning has been revealed and it is slightly higher than the Rivian R1T's.

  • The Pro ER and the Lariat ER will have a range of 320 miles (515 kilometers)

  • The Pro SR seems to have to shortest range, with 230 miles (370 kilometers)

  • The maximum range is 6 miles (10 kilometers) longer than the Rivian R1T

The official EPA range figures for the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning have been revealed via the window stickers for many different trim levels that have been published on the forum.

These figures have not been published on the EPA’s website, but there shouldn’t be any changes to the numbers by then.

The stickers cover the Pro, the Lariat ER and the Platinum trims, leaving out the XLT and the Lariat SR models.

The F-150 Lightning is available with a choice of two batteries in every trim except the top-of-the-line Platinum, which comes standard with the larger pack.

The Short Range (SR) models are equipped with a 98-kWh battery that gives the Pro SR with 18-inch wheels a range of 230 miles (370 kilometers). This is the only SR trim for which the official range is known, but the XLT SR and the Lariat SR should have a similar figure. Keep in mind that the range for these versions could also be slightly lower due to their additional weight.

The Extended Range (ER) models benefit from a 131-kWh battery that allows a range that will reach 320 miles (515 kilometers) in the PRO ER versions with 18-inch wheels. This time, the range is expected to remain the same for the XLT ER version, since the heavier Lariat ER is confirmed to also have a 320-mile (515 kilometer) range.

The most expensive trim of the F-150 Lightning however, won’t avoid a reduction in range, since the Platinum will be able to drive 300 miles (483 kilometers) on a charge. This is due to this version’s higher weight, but also to the standard 22-inch wheels.

Something interesting to note: The F-150 Lightning will have slightly more range than the smaller Rivian R1T, which is positioned in between the mid-size and the full-size categories. In terms of efficiency, the Lightning will also be ahead, despite its higher weight.
