2022 Ford F-150 Lightning EPA Estimated Range Officially Confirmed

The first wave of 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning scheduled for production emails has already been sent to order holders, and production is expected to begin this spring. Thus, it was only a matter of time before we finally learned the official EPA estimated range of Ford’s first-ever all-electric F-150. Nearly a year ago, there was a lot of speculation that the Lightning would beat its estimated range figures of 230 and 300 miles for the standard and extended range battery packs, and a leak last week seemed to verify that this was indeed true – at least for the latter model, which was purported to offer 320 miles of range. That number has now been confirmed by Ford, which just released the EV pickup’s official EPA estimated range figures.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Targeted EPA Estimated Range 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Final EPA Estimated Range
Pro Standard Range 230 miles 230 miles
Pro Extended Range (fleet only) 300 miles 320 miles
XLT Standard Range 230 miles 230 miles
XLT Extended Range 300 miles 320 miles
Lariat Standard Range 230 miles 230 miles
Lariat Extended Range 300 miles 320 miles
Platinum (Extended Range) 280 miles 300 miles

As originally expected, 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning models equipped with the standard range battery are rated to travel 230 miles on a single charge. This applies to the commercial-oriented F-150 Lightning Pro as well, which is available with the extended range battery but only for fleet customers. Meanwhile, trucks equipped with the extended range battery will enjoy a 320 mile EPA estimated range, which is 20 miles higher than previously expected. This is true for all trims except the Platinum, which is rated to travel 300 miles on a charge, due to its larger 22-inch wheels.

Meanwhile, the F-150 Lightning remains in high demand and is currently one of the most considered electrified vehicles on the market, though Ford won’t be able to fill all of its orders in the 2022 model year. Scoring a lease deal on the new EV pickup could prove difficult, too, with residual values that are lower than its ICE-powered counterparts. Lessees won’t be eligible to receive the $7,500 federal tax credit either unless they opt for Ford’s Options Plan, which is somewhat of a hybrid between a lease and traditional financing.
