What is the driving range of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning?Mar 18th, 2022
With gas prices going up faster than a Ford Mustang, even gas-powered vehicle purists aren’t immune to the allure of hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Of course, when it comes to pickup trucks, can you really put a price on capability? Thankfully, with the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning you don’t have to, with a targeted 563 horsepower and 775 lb.-ft of torque along with a stellar driving range—meaning you can spend more time driving and less time worrying about finding a charge. Read on with Heartland Ford to learn more about the driving range of the all-electric, 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning!
Driving Range Options on the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning
The Ford F-150 Lightning offers two options when it comes to your driving range, so you can cater your experience to your needs at the moment.
Standard Range Battery Lifespan
The first option on the 2022 Ford Lightning electric pickup truck is the standard range battery option. Estimated by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to provide up to 230 miles—or 370 kilometres—this means you would almost be able to drive from Fort Saskatchewan to Jasper (387 kilometres). This offers plenty of range for most people’s day-to-day commute, with the ability to recharge your battery overnight to then start all over again. Of course, if you need more than that, there’s always the extended range option.
Extended Range Battery Lifespan
The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning also offers an extended range battery, which boosts its range up to 280 miles (or 451 kilometres) in the Platinum trim, or 300 miles (or 483 kilometres) on XLT and Lariat trims. That means you’d be able to drive from Fort Saskatchewan to Calgary, stop for lunch, then head to Banff—and still have charge to spare!
2022 Ford F-150 Lightning’s Intelligent Range Feature
Helping to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your F-150 Lightning is Ford’s all new Intelligent Range feature. This feature can calculate the mileage left on your Lightning’s charge, factoring in everything from road conditions to weather, payload, the weight of what you’re towing, traffic conditions, and more. From there, it will provide you with an accurate estimate so you know exactly when it’s time to plug in for a charge.
Hybrid and electric vehicles have come a long way since they were first introduced as tiny compacts without a lot of power under the hood, and the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is living proof. Whether you’re looking for an ultra powerful pickup like the Lightning, something sportier like the all-electric Mustang Mach-E, or a versatile choice like the award-winning Ford Maverick or Escape Hybrid, you can find it in the Ford lineup.
