The full-size pick-up truck market is about to be electrified by Ford’s announcement of the F-150 Lightning for 2022.

The company says the new pick-up’s combustion engine is replaced with batteries and electric motors, and comes with the four-door SuperCrew cab option and a 5.5-foot bed, the same as the conventional model. Where the engine used to be becomes the “frunk” or front trunk, a sizeable compartment where 400 pounds of cargo can fit, out of the vehicle’s total payload of 2,000 pounds.

Ford says the truck has a towing capability of up to 10,000 pounds. With extended battery, it has 563 horsepower, 775 lb-ft of torque, and a driving range of about 482 km (300 miles) on a single charge. With the standard battery option it has 426 hp, 775 lb-ft, and a range of about 370 km (230 miles). Front and rear motors provide standard all-wheel drive, on the new “skateboard” electric vehicle platform.

The base work truck model starts at US$41,669 and is slated to roll out in May 2022.
