The all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning pickup truck was unveiled on May 19, 2021 (see the debut post and features here) and received 20,000 reservations within 12 hours.

There are two undisclosed battery versions: Standard-Range and Extended-Range that are expected to have a range of 230 miles (370 km) and 300 miles (483 km) respectively. We guess that the battery capacity stands at 115 kWh net/125 kWh total and 155 kWh net/170 kWh total, respectively.

The starting price (without incentives) is $39,974 MSRP for the entry-level version with Standard-Range Battery. The mid-series XLT trim will start at $52,974 MSRP, while the top of the line trim is up to over $90,000. We don't know the price of the Extended-Range Battery version yet. The detailed pricing will be released in Fall 2021.

Market launch of the Ford F-150 Lightning is expected in Spring 2022. The truck to be produced at Ford’s Rouge complex (where the F-150 is produced) in the new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, in Dearborn just outside Detroit, Michigan. The second F-150 plant near Kansas City, Missouri, will continue to make only conventional versions.

The battery cells for the electric F-150 are supplied from SK Innovation's battery plants in Commerce, Georgia (Ford will additionally form a JV with SK Innovation in the future). According to SK Innovation, the cells are the world’s first high-density “Nickel 9” (battery that has 90% nickel content in the cathode). We assume that it's NCM 9½½ (nickel:cobalt:manganese at a ratio of 9:½:½).

One of the most interesting features is the power export options, including up to 11 outlets and backup power for the house.

Below we gathered specs and pricing info.
