Ford revealed its all-electric F-150 Lightning car Wednesday night that CEO Jim Farley is convinced he will push the emerging electric car industry forward quickly. “Nothing will move America faster to the future EV than the # F150Lightning,” Farley tweeted Wednesday morning 12 hours before 9:30 pm Unveiling the fleet may be responsible for the lower maintenance cost, the 563 hp truck that Starting at $ 39,974, or about $ 12,000 less from competing Lordstown Endurance and $ 35,000 less than the Rivian’s R1T launch version. “We are a commercial customer,” Farley said on stage during the reveal. “We have the F-150 Lightning just for you.” “It offers the lowest cost of ownership of any truck we’ve ever made. It needs less maintenance because it has 40 percent fewer moving parts in the powertrain and of course you don’t have to stop at the gas station.” A 40% reduction in moving parts translates into significant savings. Upon unveiling the electric transit in November, Farley said the truck “should save about 40% of the operating costs associated with scheduled maintenance versus the gas-fired transport during the lifetime of each vehicle. Customers should see more uptime as well.” Towing figures were not released on E-Transit, F-150 Lightning Chief Engineer Linda Zhang said the truck would tow up to 10,000 pounds (on XLT and Lariat long-range battery and Max Trailer Tow Package) trucks if the towing performance resembles an electric truck. Rivian’s R1T, which is due for release next month, the Lightning range will be cut roughly in half during maximum draw. Exactly bad news. The Titan XD Diesel 2019 pickup truck reviewed by Hard Work Trucks and Equipment World was getting around 14 mpg in the city and dropping to 7.5 mpg in the city when pulling out a bed full of oak wood and hauling 7,000 pounds. Fuel economy reduced by 40% when testing a 2019 Ford F-250 diesel with a 7,000-pound payload in tow to help measure the impact of range during passenger and towing haulage, Ford’s onboard scales use Lightning sensors to estimate payloads that are then used in Calculate range: As with all EVs, availability of a charger and charging times can be challenging. On a 150 kW DC fast charger, Ford reports that “the long-range F-150 Lightning is aimed at reaching 54 miles of range in 10 minutes and charging from 15% to 80% in about 41 minutes.” The Technical Director of the University of Michigan Battery Laboratory, Greg Liss, told the Commercial Carrier Journal, sister of Equipment World, last year that fast charging “puts a burden on current generation batteries” and that “you can do this from time to time without causing any serious damage.” For a device, a standard-range Lightning battery delivers up to 230 miles of the EPA rated range, and a long-range battery targets 300 miles of the EPA’s rated range. With more power and storage capacity, the F-150 Lightning appears to have risen to the challenge.- And who doesn’t? – To charge power tool batteries or to power air compressors and other juice-hungry equipment, Lightning can deliver juice to 11 ports on the Pro Power Onboard. Truck.Up to 2.4 kW is available through the roomy boot while 7.2 kW is available through outlets in the cab and bed.During a power outage, Ford’s smart backup power can provide up to 9 .6 kW to run the house. Based on an average of 30 kWh of energy use per day, Lightning can meet the power needs of a home for up to three days, or up to 10 days if energy is rationed. Charge Station Pro and home management system can assist Ford with installation, F-150 Lightning starts automatically to provide backup power. Once power is restored, the truck automatically recharges its battery, and bearing in mind the range effect, a FordPass notification will provide an alert if the truck’s battery falls below a third of its total range. Also, users can program Pro Power Onboard to stop if the battery level gets close to the distance to the nearest charging station. Since more things require more storage, Ford has provided a generous 14-cubic feet of storage space under the Lightning hood, which can hold up to 400 pounds of things while the bed has a maximum load of 2,000 pounds, and the waterproof box has four electrical outlets and two charger USB and disposable ground that can double as a cooler. If the box becomes funky, just enable the outlet cover and flush it with a hose. The impressive EV performance, low center of gravity on the Ford F-150 Lightning comes from the battery pack located between the front and rear axles. The unforgettable distinguishing feature of electric vehicles is their immediate access to all that power that battery cells can provide. (Well, torque limiters are in place to keep Larry Ledfoot from drifting away.) The F-150 Lightning truck is the fastest truck Ford has ever produced. Farley said he would go from zero to 60 in the four-second average range. This is faster than the Raptor and is equally compatible with a 702 hp TRX RAM which Ram says has zero to 60 times the 4.5 seconds (reporters at MotorTrend and Car and Driver have reported better numbers). Farley said President Joe Biden is also impressed with the truck’s performance during a surprise test drive this week at Ford’s Rouge plant in Dearborn, Michigan. He commended the truck for its quiet, dominant power and noted that it handles better than the conventional truck. “It doesn’t look like the pickup truck I drove at all,” Farley said. “The driving experience is a complete thrill. We are targeting 770 feet of torque and just under 600 hp. From zero to 60 for this truck is in the mid-four-second range. That’s faster than the Raptor and it’s much faster than the original SVT Lightning performance truck. But what makes it.” Unique is that it is extremely fast but extremely quiet on the inside and extremely smooth. ”The truck gets a new independent rear suspension and four-wheel drive is standard. Farley explained that the “very low center of gravity” comes thanks to the battery pack located between the front and rear axles. Autonomous driving is available through Ford Co-Pilot360’s BlueCruise, which enables hands-free driving on more than miles of pre-qualified split highways in the United States and Canada with more hands-free blue zones in the future. Advanced Digital In Cab Experience The 15.5-inch screen takes center stage on the F-150 Lightning. The 150 Lightning on the Lariat and Platinum Series is SYNC 4A that is backed by a 15.5-inch touchscreen and is designed to adapt to the driver’s behavior. YNC 4A uses natural voice control, cloud-connected navigation, and wireless access to various services such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, built-in Amazon Alexa and SYNC AppLink apps. The 12-inch cluster features a customizable interface designed to instill confidence by displaying essential information naturally. Animated graphics convey how the car performs in hands-free highway driving mode or how far to return power to your vehicle through regenerative braking. “It’s really the smartest F-150 we’ve ever made,” said Darren Palmer, General Manager, Electric Vehicle Battery, Ford Motor. “The F-150 Lightning offers an immersive touchscreen display, giving our customers all the information they want in an instant – a real-time display of where they’re headed, what they’re moving, or how realistic range they have got banks. And with Ford Power-Up software updates, you’ll get better. Just experience. ”
