Get ready for the electrifying addition to Ford’s lineup next year: the F-150 Lightning Flash. This all-new electric truck is set to make its debut in 2024, and it’s not just another run-of-the-mill vehicle. Ford has pulled out all the stops to create a tech-focused powerhouse with impressive range capabilities, all at what they call “the correct value.”

Earlier this year, the eagle-eyed among us caught wind of a “Flash” trademark filing by Ford, sparking intrigue and speculation about what the automaker had up its sleeve. Well, the secret is out, and it’s an electrifying one. The F-150 Lightning Flash is set to join Ford’s electric truck family, bringing over a century of truck-building experience to the table.

Listening to customers is one of Ford’s core principles, and they’ve applied this wisdom to crafting the F-150 Lightning Flash. They’ve tuned in to what their customers want, and this electric Flash is designed to meet those demands head-on.

Stepping inside the Flash reveals a tech-oriented interior that’s bound to impress. It boasts a 15.5-inch touchscreen, a premium Band & Olufsen sound system, Intelligent Access, and a handy wireless charging pad. Ford also throws in its advanced BlueCruise 1.2 hands-free driving system, complete with lane change assist and in-lane parking.

But the tech wizardry doesn’t stop there. The Flash comes equipped with Ford’s Tow Tech Package, including Pro Trailer Backup Assist, a Power tailgate, a tailgate step with a work surface, and a heat pump to optimize energy usage, especially in chilly climates.

Under the hood—or rather, under the batteries—the 2024 Ford F-150 Flash packs an extended-range battery that grants it an impressive EPA-estimated range of 320 miles. Positioned above the XLT trim, the Flash takes the best features from both the XLT and Lariat variants.

Ford believes that the F-150 Flash perfectly hits the “sweet spot” for customers looking for an electric truck with modern features at the right value. Speaking of value, the starting price for this electric gem is set at $69,995, making it eligible for the EV tax credit provided by the IRS. Ford’s earlier announcement confirmed that the F-150 Lightning qualifies for the full $7,500 tax credit, while the Mustang Mach-E qualifies for $3,750.

The MY24 Lightning lineup by Ford now includes the Pro, XLT, Flash, Lariat, and Platinum models. Starting early 2024, online orders will open up for these models, each offering a unique set of features to cater to diverse market needs.

As Ford charges ahead in the electric vehicle segment, they continue to listen to their customers’ voices and evolve accordingly. Unique electric models like the Mustang Mach-E Rally and the limited-edition matte black F-150 Lightning are proof of Ford’s commitment to serving different markets.

In an era where digital experiences and software-defined features are gaining ground, Ford is adapting to meet customers’ evolving preferences in its Model e EV segment.

So, what can you expect from Ford’s new F-150 Flash electric pickup?

  • An extended-range battery with an impressive 320 EPA-estimated range
  • A tech-focused interior featuring a 15.5-inch LCD touchscreen, a high-quality B&O Sound System with HD Radio, a wireless charging pad, and more.

  • Availability of BlueCruise 1.2 with Lane Change Assist and In-Lane Repositioning.

All of this starts at a price of $69,995, making the F-150 Flash a compelling choice in the electric truck arena. And to top it off, Ford is accelerating F-150 Lightning production to ease any backlog, following a brief six-week shutdown for retooling at its Rouge electric vehicle center.
