Ford has detailed the equipment and differences that the F-150 Lightning Pro intended for fleets and sold for $ 58,000 will have.
The Ford F-150 is renowned for offering a range of versions that can meet the needs of all consumers. After launching the “mainstream” versions of the F-150 Lightning electric truck, Ford is giving details of the commercial version which will be aimed at those who emphasize capability and cost of purchase rather than on-board equipment. Here is the Ford F-150 Lightning Pro truck , reserved for commercial fleets and starting at $ 58,000.
No need to go over all the technical information of the Ford F-150 Lightning Pro , given that they are very close to the “general public” version of the truck, which we covered extensively last week. This Pro version will be positioned under the XLT, Lariat and Platinum versions.
It has the same battery options as the regular version, resulting in an EPA range that will oscillate between 370 and 483 km. All Ford F-150 Lightning Pro come standard with two electric motors – making it an all-wheel drive vehicle – and a Crew Cab configuration and a five-and-a-half-foot bed. The 400-liter front trunk remains present, as do LED lighting, a 12-inch on-board screen and foldable work surface.
The towing capacity maximum swing between 5000 books to the small battery version without all optional towing and 10,000 pounds with the bigger battery and all towing. The load capacity remains the same with 2000 pounds for the small battery version and 1800 pounds for the large battery version.
Where the major changes are taking place is in equipment. To support the drop in price of around $ 10,000 compared to the XLT version, the chopper has been included in the options offer. Power adjustable cloth seats are replaced with manually adjustable vinyl seats, 20-inch wheels are replaced with 18-inch wheels, stock running boards, 360-degree camera and smart access have been removed.
The ability to deliver power is also impaired in the Pro version due to the fact that the truck comes standard with 2.4 kilowatts of power rather than 9.6 kilowatts like the XLT, Lariat or Platinum versions. This energy can be transmitted through various sockets placed in the body, cabin and front trunk. The 9.6 kilowatt Pro Power Onboard feature will nevertheless be available as an option, as will other features that would allow the Pro version to approach the XLT version.
While the relatively tempting price of $ 58,000 for the Pro version will appeal to some consumers, it should be noted that it will only be available to commercial consumers, those who operate fleets of vehicles. “Regular” consumers will have to fall back on the XLT version or more equipped, which starts at $ 68,000.
