We previously got a look at leaked window stickers revealed for the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning. They gave us some insight into the EPA-estimated range for the electric truck, and now Ford has confirmed those numbers. While the electric truck has quite a range of features, like powering your house for days, you may want to plot your trips for around 200-mile increments if you’re not equipping the truck with the extended range battery.
Ford F-150 Lightning: EPA-Estimated Range Details
The all-new, all-electric F-150 Lightning has completed final EPA testing, and it looks like the XLT, Lariat, and Pro trims with standard range will take you about 230 miles before needing to stop and recharge. Meanwhile, the Platinum will get you around 300 miles without needing a recharge. For the F-150 Lightning XLT and Lariat trims equipped with the extended range, the estimated EPA Range is 320 miles. Unfortunately, you can’t purchase the Lightning Pro with an extended range battery unless it’s for a fleet, but if you are opting to buy a fleet, the range is also 320 miles.
These numbers aren’t far from what Ford was targeting for the F-150 Lightning. Almost everything was on the nose when it came to the standard range, except for the Platinum trim, which was targeted to have 280 miles but managed to get 300. That seems to be the result across the board concerning the extended range battery as it boosts the range 20 miles higher than what Ford was aiming for.
These numbers are in line with other all-electric pick-up trucks like the Rivian R1T, which is estimated at around 314 miles. However, the F-150 Lightning is relatively cheaper. Of course, it’s always important to take the EPA-estimated range as a general estimate and not 100% accuracy. Factors such as how the customer drives the vehicle, wind resistance, and road conditions can affect how far the truck can travel without running out of battery.
