Hot off the heels of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning reveal is yet another variant. Today Ford revealed the F-150 Lightning Pro, which will serve as the commercial-focused F-150 EV. While the base specifications are nearly the same as the retail Lightning, there is some unqiue-to-fleet technology on the Pro.
The biggest news here is that Ford is already disclosing more pricing details of the Lightning Pro. The automaker says it will start at $39,974, the same base price as the retail version. That will get fleet operators a Lightning Pro with the standard battery, meaning 230 miles of range. Businesses wanting more juice can pay an extra $10,000 to get the 300 mile version for $49,974. This is the first time Ford has disclosed pricing details surrounding the larger battery.
Mechanical details of the Lightning Pro are essentially identical to the retail version. This means that dual-motor four-wheel drive is standard, as is a SuperCrew format.
Things start to differ when it comes to the feature list. The Lightning Pro comes with vinyl seating, while the massive 15-inch LCD found in the retail truck has been swapped for a more modest 12-inch unit. There’s also a fleet-focused telematics system that will allow operators to more effectively manage their EV’s.
Registrations for the 2022 F-150 Lightning Pro open today for fleet operators, with deliveries starting sometime in 2022. This will be the second fleet-focused electric vehicle from Ford, with the first being the E-Transit van.
