Ford’s all-electric F-150 Lightning has been officially revealed and starts at under $40,000
The truck is set to come out in spring of 2022.
Ford officially revealed the company’s new all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning on Wednesday. The public got a nice sneak preview of the vehicle earlier in the week when President Joe Biden visited the company’s manufacturing plant in Dearborn, Michigan, and took the new truck out for a test drive.
The new truck will be the third EV produced by the company, following the Mustang Mach-E, which was released earlier this year, and the Ford E-Transit, which is an all-electric commercial van slated for a late 2021 release.
The F-1150 Lightning will, like most vehicles, come in several different trim options. These range from the base model, with a price tag of $39,974, up to the fully-loaded Platinum series, which will cost around $90,474.

The Ford F-150 Lightning is maybe the most notable electric vehicle from Ford. For a long time, the F-150 has been the company’s best-selling vehicle, meaning that it would have to get everything right in order for the F-150 Lightning to succeed. The truck will have to maintain the standard that previous F-150 versions have held in terms of performance, all while converting from a traditional gas-powered vehicle to an all-electric vehicle.
It is definitely an exciting time for Ford. The F-150 has always been an incredibly popular truck, and the fact that the company has been able to successfully transition the truck to an all-electric platform will be great for the company during the worldwide push towards EVs. The new truck is set for a spring 2022 release, and you can reserve yours today on the Ford website.
