2022 Ford F-150 Lightning EV Battery Comes in Two Varieties in Okanagan

Aug 22,2022

Being one of the most powerful pickup trucks, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning offers two lithium-ion batteries: a 98 kWh pack for a standard range and a 131 kWh pack for an extended range. The company claims you can get 230 miles with the standard-range battery and 300 miles with the extended-range version. The latter is only available for Pro, XLT, and Lariat models.

Let's compare these numbers with Tesla's Model S sedan and GMC's new Hummer EV for a better understanding. The former has a 100 kWh battery, and the latter comes with a 9000-pound battery that offers 200 kWh and up to 329 miles of range. You can expect the 2022 Ford F-150Lightning's battery capacities to fall between the Tesla sedan and Hummer EV.

The Lightning EV battery with the extended range will take no more than 41 minutes to go from 15% to 80% using a 150 kWh DC fast-charger. On the other hand, the standard range battery will take 44 minutes for the same. However, if you have a Level 2 charger of 80 amp, the larger battery pack can recover up to 30 miles in an hour.

With that said, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a pioneer in vehicle-to-vehicle charging, thanks to its inherent bi-directional capability. It's set to be a giant mobile power bank for charging Ford's upcoming home energy ecosystem focused on solar power.
