EV, or Electric Vehicles are all the rage at the moment, and with cars like a Rimac Nevera, I can totally understand that. Still, while we might only see such a hypercar once in a lifetime in most parts of the world when you are in the United States of America, there are regions where you’ll find a lot of pickup trucks. Those tend to be heading into the electric future too, we’ve seen the new Hummer already, there is the Rivian, and there are soon to be countless others, but one has caught our eye today … the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, which apparently is sold out for at least a year, if not two, so if you didn’t get on the delivery list for 2022 you’re probably in for a long wait … or not, as this silver metallic one listed on BringATrailer currently is available right now, at the right price naturally.
This specific one, chassis 1FT6W1EV3NWG03600 is powered by a 131-kWh battery that delivers power to dual permanent-magnet electric motors driving all four wheels, and it’s the Platinum version, so a rather high-end, optioned-out edition of this all-electric pickup that can reach 60 mph from a standstill in the mid 4 seconds region, not bad for such a heavy vehicle considering you are riding on massive 22-inch wheels with 275/50 General Grabber HTS60 tires, but there is also a twin-panel sunroof on this one while the 360-degree camera will surely help to maneuver this 4×4.
The bed is equipped with a BoxLink cargo management system, LED lighting, an onboard payload scale, a power-operated tailgate with an integrated step and grab handle and an optional Toughbed spray-in bed liner. The ProPower OnBoard system is capable of supplying a total of 9.6-kW of power to 120v outlets and one 240v outlet located in the bed, as well as additional 120v outlets located in the cabin and front trunk.
The cab features heated, ventilated, and power-adjustable Max Recline front seats trimmed in black leather with gray perforated inserts and Platinum badging on the backrests. Amenities include an optional maximum recline function for the front seats, a split rear bench with heated outboard seats, a folding interior work surface, hardwood oak trim accents, a FordPass 4G WiFi hotspot, a wireless charging pad, phone-as-key capability, and a 15.5″ tablet-style Ford SYNC4A touchscreen infotainment system with a 360-degree camera, navigation, and an 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen Unleashed sound system. Ford Co-Pilot Active 2.0 adds a suite of driving aids including the Ford BlueCruise semi-autonomous driving system, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot, lane-keeping, evasive steering, and active park assistance.
This truck comes with the extended range lithium-ion battery pack for a total power output of no less than 580 hp with a 755 lb-ft of torque, but there is also the Max Trailer Tow package on the options list that adds extra cooling for both the battery and the electric motors themselves, if we take a look at the original window sticker for this Ford F-150 Lightning you are looking at a total list price of $93,609, and is offered today with manufacturer’s literature, two remote keys, a front trunk cargo net, tie-down cleats, an 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro wallbox charging station, a Ford Mobile Power cord, and a J1772 and L14-30P to 14-50R charging adapters.
At the time of writing, the high bid on this auction that ends in 3 days is already up to $102,022, so already over the list price, which could be expected as you can’t get your hands on one of these anytime soon, so if you are interested in driving an all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning without waiting for months or even years, now is your chance to own one within a week … at a premium naturally, so head over to BringATrailer and bid now … the best of luck, for now, enjoy some more photos of this brand new, with just 30 miles on the odometer, offered by a private party:
