The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck has an impressive usable battery of 98 kWh compared to the Tesla’s Model S sedan. The GMC’s new Hummer EV also delivers 200 kWh (although it weighs a massive 9,000 pounds and delivers a driving range of 329 miles). The Ford also provides an optimal driving range that falls between the above two.

By comparison, the Rivian’s R1T pickup allows a 135-kWh battery that delivers 314 miles of range (EPA rated). It’s easy to see that Ford is right on the money with 230 miles and 98 kWh usable capacity (non-EPA rated). One can expect that actual EPA figures will be higher as Ford F-150 Lightning has an impressive 1000-pound payload.
