Journalists have published a render of an electric version of the full-size pickup truck Ford F-150 2022 model year. This version of the car will be named Lightning. The Ford F-150 Lightning will debut on March 19. In the meantime, there is no need to know about it. ”
The artist, known by the nickname WB.Artist20, presented his vision of what an electric Ford F-150 Lightning pickup might look like. The front end is the part of the truck that is most known about at the moment. The running lights cover the entire width of the nose, including the LEDs under the bonnet. WB.Artist20 adds the Lightning logo where we would normally expect to see Ford nameplates. The false grille is closed, which makes sense because EVs do not need the airflow normally used to cool an internal combustion engine, and there is a hole in the bottom panel for cooling.
From the side, the Lightning is not much different from the standard F-150. So far, we only see the truck in the SuperCrew layout with four doors. It is unclear if other configurations will be available as well.
Ford is keeping ground clearance fairly low, which will help improve the truck’s aerodynamics, which means more range per charge. However, the company is not positioning the model as a hardcore SUV.
At the rear, there is a subtle spoiler at the end of the tailgate. WB.Artist20 has equipped the car with a pair of full-size LEDs along the top and bottom of the taillights.
At the moment, we don’t know anything about the mechanical aspects of the F-150 Lightning. For four-wheel drive, there are at least two electric motors. The range must be at least 482.8 km and can be up to 643.74 km for the version with a larger battery.
Production of the F-150 Lightning will begin at Ford’s new US Electric Vehicle Center in mid-2022. Initial interest in the electric vehicle is already high enough for Ford to increase production at the plant by 50%.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that an updated version of the “charged” Ford Ranger Raptor pickup was captured. Western publications have published a video with a test prototype of the updated Ford Ranger pickup truck in the high-performance Raptor.
