Ford announced the official launch of it's F-150 Electric truck, the F-150 Lightning today at 9.30pm ET. The event will take place at the Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn and livestreamed for millions to watch. It will be live streamed on Ford's YouTube and Twitter accounts with 30+ ways to watch the event.
Ford received huge publicity for the launch when President Biden decided to test drive the truck today at Ford's test track outside Detroit. Biden said in conversation with an unidentified Ford official that the new truck, dubbed the “Lightning,” accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) in 4.3 or 4.4 seconds — a figure the official said hasn’t yet been revealed. “I should be quiet,” Biden joked.
Ford President and CEO Jim Farley said “America’s favorite vehicle for nearly half a century is going digital and fully electric. F-150 Lightning can power your home during an outage; it’s even quicker than the original F-150 Lightning performance truck; and it will constantly improve through over-the-air updates.”
You can watch the event live on Ford's official YouTube channel or on their website.
