F-150 Lightning, the only full-size electric pickup available now with a starting price less than $40,000, according to Ford, will begin to ship to customers in the coming days. The shipments will start with the Pro Series.

To mark this milestone, Ford Chief Financial Officer John Lawler, members of the F-150 Lightning team, the UAW, and other Ford leaders and partners served as honorary ringers for the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange just before 9:30 a.m. EDT April 28, 2022.

Built at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center within Ford’s historic Rouge Complex in Dearborn, Michigan, F-150 Lightning is the only electric vehicle that is Built Ford Tough. Ford F-Series, America’s best-selling truck for 45 years in a row, is second only to the iPhone in revenue among all American consumer products, according to a 2020 study.

F-150 Lightning joins the Mustang Mach-E SUV and E-Transit commercial van in Ford’s growing lineup of innovative, mainstream electric vehicles. Ford is on track to deliver more than 2 million electric vehicles annually by 2026, equal to about one-third of the company’s global volume, on the way to 50% by 2030.

F-150 Lightning accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in the mid-4-second range with the extended-range battery, making it the fastest-accelerating F-150 yet.
