Ford Motor Company said today it is planning to nearly double production of the F-150 Lightning™ pickup at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn to 150,000 trucks per year to meet high demand for the first all-electric version of America’s best-selling vehicle, the F-Series.
Usually when someone asks you to top them off, they’re holding a cool beverage in hand looking for a refill. But with the all-electric F-150 Lightning™, customers can take service to another level by “sharing” miles with other electric vehicles – those built by Ford and other manufacturers – giving people additional range through vehicle-to-vehicle charging.
Ford truck and fleet owners and customers guided decision-making for the innovative design of the F-150 Lightning pickup’s Mega Power Frunk, leading to multiple power sources and enough space to house two golf bags.
Ted Cannis, CEO of Ford Pro, Ford’s global vehicle services and distribution business focused on helping commercial customers improve performance, will participate in a fireside chat with autos analyst Brian Johnson at the upcoming Barclays Global Automotive and Mobility Tech Conference. The virtual event will take place on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 9:20 a.m. ET.
