NEW Ford F-150 Lightning EV - better than a Tesla Cybertruck!
Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

The F-150 is going electric! Introducing the new Ford F-150 Lightning!

This all-American pick-up has been the best-selling vehicle in the USA for the past 44 years, so let’s face it, it was only a matter of time before an electric version was released.

And if we’re being honest, looking at the performance stats, we’re more than happy it’s made the switch to an EV! It’ll come equipped with dual-motors as standard, the extended-range model will be able to produce 571hp. As a comparison, a V8 Ford Mustang can only put down 450hp!

That’s not all though… It’ll also make a colossal 1,050Nm of torque - almost double the Mustang’s 529Nm!!

So the power stats are great, and it doesn’t look too bad either! But does it have what it takes to keep its pick-up crown when it faces tough competition from the Tesla Cybertruck and Hummer EV? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

      @Zaliah any tesla owner will tell you the cars have less range as advertised and if you didn’t know the ford was tested with a 1000 payload, also the tesla truck still need side mirrors which will reduce their range. Also when a tesla car needs repair…good luck at least ford has dealers all over the place. Now who cares how fast a truck goes from 0-60? If is that important for you buy a bike they are faster.

    After driving many EVs i found out that Tesla is away ahead of all companies in 10 years except Lucid and Aptera because when Tesla was creating a futuristic vehicle, other auto companies were just sticking in the incient combustion engine with an old or the traditional instruments.

    So when is Cybertruck coming? 2 years? 5 years? I want to see it on the streets. Ford will release their truck next year. Elon is eating his words.

    People crushing on the cyber truck have no idea how dialled back it’s going to have to be to be legal in most markets. Crush zones, pedestrian safety, even the glass and side mirrors are illegal. This and Hummer are production ready.

    Cybertruck all the way. This looks like a toy truck. I prefer the Raptor or the RAM 1500 limited. If you're going electric you should go all out like tesla did. Cybertruck and Ram limited for me.

    This thing is going to sell like hot cakes. I fear the Rivian and Hummer are in trouble.

    I have just watched MKBHD review for this truck and it sound like the most practical truck out of the bunch with a lot of useful features for professional

  • swifty

    The range you get on the truck is only 300 miles if an additional 1000lbs of extra weight gets added onto it.

  • Olipeeee

    Matt - torque is irrelevant, 1Nm can tow a aeroplane if enough gearing is available.. power is the only fair comparison. Also EVs have massive radiators, they are heavily fanned they're just hidden under the frunks. Large radiators are required as the temperature delta between battery/motor temps vs ambient air is very low.

  • Joshua Knutson
    Joshua Knutson

    FYI the epa range is based off of having 1000lbs to capacity loaded into it. So in theory empty with a single driver should get more range than its epa rating

    • Nicholas Thon
      Nicholas Thon

      The 1000lb thing is a wives tale. Find ANY Ford release stating that. It started as some speculative media post and everyone bought it as truth. Ford has been asked directly about it and couldn't confirm, but also not deny because it's a good rumor for them.

    YAH ....the F-150 is way better than the CT. It costs more, has less range, accelerates slower, tows less, carries less, doesn't have air suspension, and has a smaller box with wheel wells. What metrics are you using? By the way, the tri-motor does 0 to 60 in 2.9 sec. Last time I checked that is faster than 4.5. You're correct about the frunk, that's about the only thing that is better.

    "NEW Ford F-150 Lightning EV - better than a Tesla Cybertruck!" With that title I expected a serious comparison, and an argument why the F150 is better. I must have missed that part. While I must admit that I like the look of the F150 better than the look of the Cybertruck, that currently the only part I'm certain is "better".

  • Cow_ranch

    I don't know what Cybertruck's final specs will be. But seeing the cargo capacity, I'm wondering if it's a bit high to be a 1/2 ton. I don't see the bed as being practical. Can't get to it from the sides well. Side mounted toolboxes etc. won't be that practical, general things like that. Also, wonder about a gooseneck ball, those sides with that type of trailer. But, the range is nice. I don't think the F150 would have enough range to get to town for supplies in cold weather with a trailer (my routine supply run is 180 miles round trip, major hills, loaded). At the very least it would be very close. There are no chargers before town. And with charging rates, plus half the mileage in winter and less than that adding on towing/hauling, it would likely cost as much or more to charge than filling up a gas engine (at least it wouldn't be cheap, no way to know for sure without real testing). Also, the chargers are currently not near any stores, sitting for nearly an hour is a waste of time, at least annoying. Also, 5.5' bed is a no go, but so is a 6.5'. Days at home are sometimes all day, hauling back and forth to the sale barn, few hundred miles some days, loaded trailer. I haven't read anything about fast home chargers. And, not really a good example, because it takes a 3/4 ton plus pickup anyway. Major hospital if the local 30 mile away one can't handle something is 220 miles one way, no chargers in between, yet. Again, thinking about winter, and time might be important. I guess I'll have to wait until the tech improves a little, range is longer, and charging doesn't take as long (since I'd have to charge a fair bit of the time in town). Also, need the longer bed.

    Who would want to buy the absurdly stupid looking and impractical Tesla pickup (really?) truck with Ford offering this genuine pickup functioning beauty... Dah? I am a huge fan of Elon but he has lost his way on design. His cars are now the ugliest most boring looking vehicles the road sans the Model S. With the other big automakes introducing great looking long range electrics... sales will not go well for Tesla in the nxt few years. Sorry Elon, but you've gone way off the reservation on these design concepts. Better hire some Italians... and quick!

  • Mark Keller

    If the Lightning sells well (and no doubt it will) Ford will quickly introduce a "Lightning" version of the Ranger and Maverick that should be sellable to the UK and Europe.

    • Mark Keller
      Mark Keller

      @Myrkvi That is odd, maybe they will hold off for the all electric version? Or maybe small vans sell better in Europe?

    • Myrkvi

      Maverick won't be sold in Europe (which is odd).

  • Felix Hinze

    This is to cool. I especially like the massive front trunk. Given that a pickup truck typically has it's load bay exposed to the elements and prying eyes, having the ability to store some goodies in a secure 'frunk' while having an open load-bay, is just what was missing from pickup trucks all these years. Not to mention the ability for it to power your house in case of a power failure... This is pretty exceptional. We've got to put pressure on Ford that they also make this in right hand drive... There is just no way that they can justify to keep this producs for themselves in America.

    The 300 mi range is after having a weight of 1000 pounds in the truck

    • Fr4nciS

      @Nicholas Thon Could you explain why the truck displayed 367 miles remaining with 80% of the battery left?

    • Nicholas Thon
      Nicholas Thon

      That's a fake rumor. Find a single Ford release stating that, anywhere. Ford was asked directly and they couldn't confirm, but didn't deny because it's too juicy for them. They're obviously hoping the battery tech will catch up to something like that, but it's not here yet.

    • Steve Edward

      @mrstatictunes I was curious on how badly the range with a load would've been if it was 300 miles unloaded. Pretty impressive to have that kind of range, it's a really well rounded truck

    • Fr4nciS

      @Bob Roof Based on video by Marques Brownlee, Ford told him that the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck’s 300-mile range is their expectation of the estimated EPA range with 1,000 lbs of cargo.

    300miles of range with 1000lbs of cargo. Actual is ~450

  • XhellscreamX

    fyi, the range is based on having 1000pounds in the tray/towing. MKBHD did some basic math after having hands on, and I think he said looks like it'll do around 496miles un-laiden
