Most builds are strugging with chip production, Not sure if we will ever catch up. This thing looks like it will house a whole bag of computer chips. Would not want to wait for parts on this thing.

The new Chev ev truck is kinda setup like an avalanche. I just can’t bite into this

But I’m excited to see the “plaid” versions of these electric trucks eventually. They’ll be break neck fast

F-150 Lightning Shipping to Customers With More Horsepower, More Payload Capacity, More Range​

F-150 Lightning customers will benefit from more power and capability than they expected from their trucks.

F-150 Lightning, the only full-size electric pickup available now with a starting price of less than $70,000 CAD, will begin to ship to customers in the coming days, as Ford establishes itself as a leader in the electric vehicle revolution. Lightning is the smartest, most innovative F-150 that Ford has ever built, with the freedom of a 10-kilowatt smart power plant on wheels, software updates that will make it even better over time and Built Ford Tough capability.

Both the standard- and extended-range battery packs offered on F-150 Lightning will deliver more horsepower than originally targeted and announced when the truck was revealed in May 2021, and the payload capacity increased as well.

“We were seriously focused on raising the bar on this truck, including after we revealed it, so we can deliver more for our customers,” said Dapo Adewusi, F-150 Lightning Vehicle Engineering Manager. “And our drive for continuous improvement will get a big boost when we start getting feedback and ideas from customers when they receive their Lightnings.”

The extended-range battery pack produces 580 horsepower—up from the targeted 563 horsepower. The standard-range battery pack delivers 452—up from the targeted 426 ponies originally promised. Both packs are capable of producing 775 lbs.-ft. of torque, more than any other F-150 pickup ever.

“Considering the initial numbers were impressive, these are amazing!” says F-150 Lightning customer and high school teacher Travis Piser. “It really inspires a lot of confidence about how the truck will perform.”

F-150 Lightning is the only electric vehicle that is Built Ford Tough, and its maximum available payload capacity also increased from the original targets. Properly equipped F-150 Lightning pickups can now haul an extra 235 pounds for a total 2,235 pounds of maximum available hauling capability.

“I have been very excited for this truck ever since it debuted a year ago. The experience of driving one was simply amazing,” says F-150 Lightning customer and Deputy Fire Marshal Matthew Brown. “Now you are telling me that it has more horsepower and can haul over a ton of weight in the bed. Absolutely blows my mind!”

In March, Ford released the final EPA-estimated range figures for all F-150 Lightning pickup models, which includes a 32 km increase for F-150 Lightning XLT and Lariat trims with the extended range battery for a total EPA estimated range of 515 km. Fleet customers have the option to purchase the extended-range battery on Lightning Pro which has an EPA-estimated range of 515 km.2

Even if you wanted to spend 175,000 cad on it, good luck finding one...

That's a decent margin for the Dealership, remove some plastic and deliver the vehicle..

Ford did a good job getting it to production in a timely fashion. Now comes the hard part, keeping up with the demand.
