Dressed to Impress and Eager to Please…the 2022 Ford Lightning

The 2022 Ford Lightning is arguably one of the most anticipated electric pickup trucks of all time. This EV has generated a lot of buzz among car enthusiasts and environmentalists alike, as it represents a significant step forward in the electrification of the automotive industry.

The Ford Lightning has a sleek and modern look that is sure to turn heads. With a bold front grille, slim headlights, and a sloping roofline giving it a sporty appearance, this EV screams “look at me” and is hard to ignore on the road.

Here are a few more reasons why this electric pickup is causing such a stir.

Power and Performance

The 2022 Ford Lightning is no slouch. Two electric motors power this AWD to give it 452 horsepower. If you upgrade to the extended-range trim, those ponies increase to an impressive 580 hp. The Lightning boasts a top speed of over 180km and can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds. This EV also has a towing capacity of up to 10,000 pounds, making it capable of easily handling heavy loads.

With all this brawn, you might think driving it would feel burly or aggressive. But that’s not the case at all. The 2022 Ford Lightning delivers an almost Zen-like driving experience giving long drives a feeling of serenity. Make no mistake, this EV is a beast off the line with eager acceleration that can wake you out of your meditative state instantly.

Battery, Range and Charging

One of the key features of the 2022 Ford Lightning is its impressive range. Even the base model can get you to places near and far without needing a charge stop.

Base Model
96-kWh battery 
370 km of range on a full charge.

Extended-Range Model
131-kWh battery
515km of range on a full charge

Charging the Ford Lightning is simple. A mobile power cord capable of 30 Amps charging on a 240V and 120V outlet comes standard with the base model.

The extended-range model comes with an 80A Ford Charge Station Pro charging unit (which requires professional installation) and provides the fastest at-home charge, connected features and available Ford Intelligent Backup Power. With the Backup Power, your F-150 Lightning can power your home for up to 10 days (when your home is adequately equipped) when connected to the 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro and Home Integration System. This charger takes about 40 minutes to go from 15-80% in battery power.

Interior and Cargo Space

The truck’s interior is equally impressive, with comfortable seats, a large touchscreen display, and various advanced tech features. The front seats are heated and ventilated, while the top trim adds massage settings. One cool feature of this EV is the stow-away shifter. With a push of a button, the electronic gear shifter stows away, allowing a spacious work surface to roll out.
