All-electric Ford F-150 receives a Lightning badge ahead of its debut


The all-electric Ford F-150 is all set to make its official global debut on May 19, 2021, at 9:30 PM EDT (7:00 AM Thursday, IST), and it’s not gonna be called just F-150 electric. That’s boring AF. Think of the F-150 Raptor being called as just F-150 performance, or something; it might be powered by an EcoBoost V6, but it’s the ‘Raptor’ title that fetches the buyers, and so it is with an all-electric F-150. Which is why it is named F-150 ‘Lightning’.

Every so often, a new vehicle comes along that disrupts the status quo and changes the game… Model T, Mustang, Prius, Model 3. Now comes the F-150 Lightning. America’s favorite vehicle for nearly half a century is going digital and fully electric. The F-150 Lightning can power your home during an outage; it’s even quicker than the original F-150 Lightning performance truck, and it will constantly improve through over-the-air updates. – Jim Farley, President and CEO


The F-150 Lightning will be available to order in the United States in spring 2022. Production will also begin next spring at the new Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan. The new facility will add 300 jobs.
