Ford just unveiled its first electric pickup truck, the F-150 Lightning. And, as has become tradition in the EV world, only a $ 100 deposit can get you in line for one when these rigs finally start rolling off the assembly line, starting in 2022.
Trucks are available for reservation on this website. The standard-range model starts at $ 39,974, and will achieve a range of about 250 miles. An extended-range version starts at $ 52,974 and can travel up to 300 miles on a single charge.
Deposits are fully refundable, but orders may begin in the fall of 2021 if you wish to follow your purchase. And delivery is expected to begin in the spring of 2022.
Ford’s website provides details about the base model as well as XLT, Lariat and Platinum trim levels.
Ford says the fully loaded F-150 Lightning will cost $ 90,474, though Ford is still eligible for a $ 7,500, federal EV tax credit in the US. A commercial version of the F-150 Lightning will be revealed at a later date.
