Ford’s All-Electric F-150 Lightning Truck Being Unveiled May 19 [VIDEO]



Despite a recent dip in sales of its Mustang Mach-E due to the ongoing chip shortage, Ford is optimistic about its electric future, with a new vehicle soon to come our way.

On Monday, Ford announced plans to unveil an all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning on May 19, set to be the first all-electric version of the classic pickup truck line.

In a video teaser shared, the company stated that the zero-emission F-150 would become available in spring 2022, and you can see the outlines of a pre-production computer-generated concept version of the truck.

In the press release, Ford CEO and President Jim Farley said, “Every so often, a new vehicle comes along that disrupts the status quo and changes the game … Model T, Mustang, Prius, Model 3. Now comes the F-150 Lightning.”

Farley continued, “America’s favorite vehicle for nearly half a century is going digital and fully electric. F-150 Lightning can power your home during an outage; it’s even quicker than the original F-150 Lightning performance truck; and it will constantly improve through over-the-air updates.”

The reveal is set for 9:30 p.m. eastern time on May 19, through a streamed event broadcasting live from Ford World Headquarters. Production of Ford’s F-150 Lightning begins in Spring 2022 at Ford’s electric vehicle (EV) center in Dearborn, Michigan.
