F-150 Lightning XLT given EPA range

In the USA, the all-electric F-150 Lightning has completed final EPA testing. F-150 Lightning XLT and Lariat trims with the extended range battery offer an EPA-estimated range of 320 miles (515 kilometres). 

The F-150 Lightning Platinum has been given an EPA-estimated range of 300 miles (483 kilometres). Fleet customers have the option to purchase the extended range battery on Lightning Pro and that has an EPA-estimated range of 320 miles.

We are laser focused on continually improving our energy consumption efficiency for Lightning and the team is really happy to deliver these results for our customers, said Linda Zhang, chief program engineer, F-150 Lightning.

Recently, the F-150 began a pilot program for vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology, that should allow the vehicle to feed energy back into the grid, functioning as battery storage during blackouts, for example. Siemens Smart Infrastructure has also collaborated with Ford on the ‘Ford Charge Station Pro’ made for the Ford F-150 Lightning e-pickup. It is the first bidirectional-ready charging solution for electric vehicles to be released at the end-user level, according to Siemens.

Ford’s electric pick-up truck has been enormously popular. In January this year, high demand for the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning was leading some dealers in the US to charge customers thousands of dollars more than the list price for early delivery dates.
