Ford’s new all-electric pickup truck will be called the F-150 Lightning, the automaker announced. The all-new F-150 Lightning will be revealed May 19 at Ford World Headquarters and will be broadcast live across multiple platforms.

“Every so often, a new vehicle comes along that disrupts the status quo and changes the game … Model T, Mustang, Prius, Model 3. Now comes the F-150 Lightning,” said Ford President and CEO Jim Farley. “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.”

“The truck of the future will be built with quality and a commitment to sustainability by Ford-UAW workers at the Ford Rouge Complex,” Farley added.

Production of the F-150 Lightning begins next spring at the all-new Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.
