Ford launches the F-150 electric vehicle

Just one year after Ford launched its first F-150 plug-in hybrid vehicle, the company will unveil an all-electric F-150 Lightning version of its iconic truck.

This twin-engine truck can deliver up to 563 hp and 1,050 Nm of torque, more than any other F-150 truck.

Ford said it can go from 0 km / h to 100 km / h in four seconds.

Still in four-wheel drive, there are four driving modes, full load, 1,800-pound traction limit, and 10,000-pound extended range version.

Since there is no front drive, it is equipped with a 400L storage box that provides lockable storage space. You just have to use the keyboard icon to unlock storage space.

It is also equipped with an independent rear suspension. Like the Mustang Mach-E, the electric F-150 also has several smart functions, including BlueCruise's hands-free highway driving assistant and the latest Sync 4A infotainment system, with Amazon Alexa use as CarPlay and Android Auto one device can be connected 15.5 inch touch sensitive screen.

Ford equipped trucks with pneumatic retrofits that can be installed in less than two minutes and is the first F-series pickup truck to support the use of smartphones as keys to lock, unlock and start the car.

Although all trucks come with two engines, buyers can choose between two battery versions.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates Ford's target range at 230 miles for the standard version and 300 miles for the enhanced version.

The battery is liquid-cooled, housed in a waterproof housing with a non-slip metal plate and a sturdy base to protect the battery and the motor, and has been field tested and in weather conditions below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

When loading trucks, Ford offers several options as you can access 63,000 charging points through FordPass.

If you can find a 150kW fast DC charger, the extended range model can use two chargers to get a range of 54 km in 10 minutes and charge from 15% to 80% in 41 minutes.

The 240V portable charger can charge 21 mph, which means the 240V outlet will take 14 hours to charge the standard model (15% to 100%) and 19 hours for the extended model.

If you have a new 80A Charging Station Pro for your home, electricity can flow in a number of ways, including at home.

Ford said it can fully charge the F-150 Lightning within 8 hours, and if the power goes out, the owner can easily run the entire house for about 3 days.

The truck will make its debut next spring. The simplified basic version costs less than $ 40,000, while the extended battery version costs $ 52,974 with more features.
