Ford F-150 Lightning "Engineering Evaluation Vehicle" Spotted Charging in Victoria, Australia
November 11, 2023
A Facebook user has posted images of an "engineering evaluation vehicle" Ford F-150 Lightning charging at Eltham Leisure Centre in Victoria to a BYD Group page.
The spot comes just weeks after the official launch of the remanufactured and Ford Australia supported F-150 in Australia, for which CarSauce attended the launch of.
Although Ford Australia has not explicitly said the F-150 Lightning Electric Truck would be re-manufactured for Australia, they have said they are "assessing the market" for all variants of the best-selling truck in US history.
The Ford F-150 was one of the first electric trucks to come to market in the US. It comes with either a 98kWh or 131kWh battery, with 337kW of power and 433kW of power respectively.
It has a range of about 390km for the standard battery, and up-to 510km for the extended battery.
The Ford F-150 has seen a fair amount of controversy recently.
Last month Ford announced it would scale back production of the Ford F-150 Lightning after a 46% decline in sales from the previous year.
