What is the F-150 Lightning?
The best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for the past 45 years is turning electric, and it's hard to underestimate the importance of the Ford F-150 Lightning. Its success, or otherwise, will define how we view and use trucks in the years ahead. The Rivian R1T and GMC Hummer EV might have beaten it to the showroom, but they're targeted at the affluent leisure market. The Lightning is targeted at working America, and at least until the Chevrolet Silverado EV arrives in 2023, the Lightning has the "real" EV truck market to itself.
