In two months, Ford has delivered electric F-150 Lightning trucks to customers in all 50 U.S. states.

Texas and California lead the way with the highest number of F-150 Lightning deliveries through late July.

Jeff and Tammy Head, owners of both an F-150 and now an F-150 Lightning, have primarily used their new electric truck to tow a boat from Anchorage to Kenai River for salmon fishing.

“From the time we watched it at the reveal, we knew that we wanted it,” Tammy Head said. “We had no doubt that this truck will have trademark Ford quality which gave us the confidence to transition to an electric vehicle.”

“And the guy in me likes having the baddest truck on the planet,” Jeff Head added.

Among the most-photographed features of the F-150 Lightning so far is the Mega Power Frunk. Owners are using the 400 liters of space to store gear and are taking advantage of the 2.4 kW of Pro Power Onboard in the frunk to help power their campsite or charge their power tools while driving.  

“This truck is a workhorse. We have driven more than 3,000 miles already and towed and carried hundreds of pounds of concrete in the frunk,” said Emre Gol of Texas, who uses his F-150 Lightning Lariat pickup for work at their kitchen and bathroom remodeling business.

Nearly 80% of early reservation holders said in a survey that F-150 Lightning will be the first full EV in their household.  

“The Lightning is the best thing I have ever purchased,” said Chris Ashley, a resident of Maryland and a first-time electric vehicle buyer. “With this truck, I can enhance my love of tailgating while at the same time play a small role in creating a better planet for my children.” 

Ford has sold over 4,400 F-150 Lightning electric trucks in the U.S. and Canada (YTD). Ford will report July U.S. sales totals Aug. 3.
