The new 2022 F-150 Lightning all-electric pickup was unveiled by automaker company, Ford, at its “Glass House ” main office in Dearborn, Michigan, during a striking multimedia ceremony.
The company lifts its hopes high for the impressive EV to become the blue-collar hero, with mainstream purchasers able to access Lightning, as well as give sustainable employment for Ford employers and its suppliers.
The model can further generate heroes from companies that can immediately take on the F-150 Lightning as a work vehicle for general tasks. Compared to gasoline, electric power to charge Ford’s new model costs cheaper. Its routine maintenance is also minimal.
The muffler-free vehicle’s brakes are durable and its electric motors have lesser parts as compared to that with combustion engines.
Its physical appearance does not go far with the similar gas-consuming model. The vehicle provides buyers the battery that has the capacity to run 230 miles in estimate when fully charged.
For the entry-level model, the price for the 2022 F-150 Lighting hit around $40, 000 while the mid-level XLT can be accessible with $53, 000, both excluding destination payments.
Also, these prices do not show the $7,500 federal EV tax credit that is up for grabs.
“We’re not here to make an electric truck for the few,” Ford North America Kumar Galhotra said. “Ford is committed to building one that solves real problems for real people.”
“The Ford F-150 Lighting can be a best-selling electric vehicle in the U.S. if they market it and get it on the road and in the communities where the truck drivers live,” acting director of the Clean Transportation Campaign for the Sierra Club, Katherine Garcia, meanwhile, noted. “Drivers will talk and will say that it’s the best vehicle you can buy.”
