Ahead of its planned launch later this spring, the official EPA range and efficiency ratings for the upcoming Ford F-150 Lightning have been revealed.
As expected, the electric pickup truck is not a model for efficiency. According to a Munroney sticker first shared on the F150Gen14.com forum, the base F-150 Lightning XLT gets 76MPGe in city driving, and 61MPGe in highway driving, for a combined rating of 68MPGe.
The Lightning XLT comes with the standard 98Kwh battery pack, and with those efficiency ratings will be able to travel 230 miles (370km) on a full charge.
These figures make the base F150 Lightning more efficient than the Rivian R1T in city driving (74MPGe), but likely due to its heavier weight it is less efficient on the highway (66MPGe).
The Munroney sticker for the F-150 Lightning with the extended range battery was also posted, and it achieves slightly lower efficiency ratings – 73MPGe (city) and 60MPGe (highway) for a combined rating of 66MPGe.
Thanks to the larger 131kWh battery pack, it is able to travel 300 miles (482km) on a full charge.
Ford has accumulated about 200,000 reservations for the F-150 Lightning since unveiling the electric pickup truck last May.
The high level of interest pushed Ford to increase their production target from 40,000 units up to 150,000 in the first year.
The first customer vehicles could roll off the production line as early as April after some customers received notices their Lightning’s were scheduled for production.
