Ford launches a small commercial electric truck

Ford released a new version of the F-150 Lightning electric vehicle specifically for commercial customers, the F-150 Lightning Pro, which starts at $ 39,974 and has a range of 230 miles.

The long-haul version of the truck is expected to travel 300 miles on a single charge and start at $ 49,974.

The new electric truck is very similar to the consumer version of the F-150 Lightning.

Fleets in the U.S. are considering switching to electric according to state or federal zero-emissions guidelines, or have the lowest overall cost of electric vehicles.

Ford said the F-150 Lightning Pro could cut maintenance costs by up to 40% over 8 years and up to 100,000 miles of use when compared to the 2.7-liter EcoBoost F-150.

There will be a few electric pickup trucks on the market for the next year or two, including the Tesla Cybertruck, GMC Hummer EV and the Rivian R1T, but almost none of them are aimed at commercial fleets.

With the F-150 Lightning Pro, Ford has taken a leading position in the commercial market battle.

Additionally, there aren't many distinct differences between the F-150 Lightning Pro and the F-150 Lightning that Ford revealed last week.

Like the F-150 Lightning, the F-150 Lightning Pro is also equipped with a four-door SuperCrew cab, which buyers can optionally equip with a standard or extended battery.

Along with the optional towing package, the Standard Range version has a maximum towing capacity of 7700 lbs., While the Long Range version has a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 lbs.

Both versions use a twin-engine all-wheel drive system, and the standard truck has a maximum output of 426 hp, while the extended version can produce around 563 hp.

My F-150 Lightning Pro is powered by power tools or other accessories, although buyers are paying higher fees for additional outlets (including 240V outlets) and higher overall power.

The extended runtime option also has an 80Ah charging station, making it easy to fill the truck's battery.

All commercial vehicle versions come with a huge weatherproof front box that provides 14.1 cubic feet of storage space and an array of power outlets.

There is a big difference between the F-150 Lightning and F-150 Lightning Pro versions, with the latter coming with Ford's IT business software that makes it easy for fleet owners to monitor a site or site.
