All you need to know about the Ford Lightning

It's been the star of the show since its launch, so much so that production had to be increased. That's only natural since the first truly electric truck, the Ford Lightning, offers great road holding, exceptional work capabilities, and electric motorization, making the competition blush with envy. Here are some things that make the Lightning the best truck in its class and the best choice for electric vehicles.

Because it's no longer a secret: the Ford Lightning is the most powerful electric truck on the market. It features a dual-motor powertrain that produces up to 580 hp and 775 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. The Lightning also has a government-estimated range of 515 kilometres, making it perfect for towing and long-distance transport.

In addition to its impressive performance, the Ford Lightning is also packed with innovative features. It has a front trunk (or "frunk") that can hold up to 400 pounds of cargo, and it can also power your home for up to three days in the event of a power failure.

So far, these are things you know. But here's a closer look at some of the Ford Lightning's key features:

Dual-motor powertrain

The Lightning's dual-motor powertrain delivers instant torque and power, making it one of the most powerful electric trucks on the market. It can tow up to 10,000 lbs and carry up to 2,000 lbs.

Front trunk (frunk)

The Lightning's front trunk (or "frunk") is a unique feature that gives you an extra 400 litres of cargo space. The front trunk is also lockable and weatherproof, making it an ideal place to store tools, groceries or anything else you need to keep dry.

Ford Co-Pilot 360 Assist

The Lightning comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot 360™ Assist, which includes a suite of intelligent driver assistance features such as blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking. These features can help you stay safe on the road and avoid accidents.

Optional Blue Cruise hands-free semi-autonomous driving

The Ford Lightning is also available with Blue Cruise, a hands-free semi-autonomous driving system. Blue Cruise can help you take the stress out of long-distance driving by automatically steering, accelerating and braking for you.

360° lighting

Lightning's 360-degree lighting system gives you a complete view of your surroundings, making it easier to see at night or in low-light conditions.

Intelligent towing technology

The Lightning's intelligent towing technology makes towing trailers easier. The system automatically adjusts truck settings to optimize performance and safety.

Lower operating costs

Electric vehicles are generally less expensive to operate than gasoline-powered vehicles.

Of course, we could have added the comfort of the cabin, the generous space on board, the SYNC 4 system and its over-the-air updates, and a whole lot more. But what you need to remember first is the Ford Lightning's smooth ride, driving pleasure and dynamism.

All this, combined with its work capacity, explains why this big 100% electric truck represents the very best of Ford's electric future.
