In the ever-evolving landscape of electric vehicles (EVs), Ford has been a long-standing contender, and they have certainly made their mark with the 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash. This electrifying addition to the F-150 lineup has taken the automotive world by storm, offering a blend of range, performance, and practicality that many truck enthusiasts have eagerly awaited. It's more than just another EV; it's a revolution in the pickup truck industry.

Electrifying Performance

Electrifying Performance

At the heart of the 2024 F-150 Lightning Flash lies a powerful electric powertrain. With an electric motor driving each axle, this pickup can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmh in just under 4 seconds. That's sports car territory! The instant torque delivery, a hallmark of electric vehicles, ensures that this truck can handle both city traffic and rugged off-road adventures with ease.

Ford understands that a pickup truck isn't just about speed and range; it's also about functionality. The Lightning Flash offers impressive towing capacity, with the ability to tow up to 10,000 pounds. Whether you're hauling equipment for work or taking the family boat to the lake, this truck can handle the load.

But it's not just a workhorse; it's also a great playmate. The Lightning Flash features a spacious and comfortable interior with advanced infotainment and connectivity options. The Ford SYNC 4 system with a massive 15.5-inch touchscreen is at the center of it all, providing intuitive controls and access to a host of apps and services. The truck's onboard power outlets make it a handy generator on wheels, perfect for powering tools, appliances, or even your camping gear.

The Sweet Spot: Range and Efficiency

The Sweet Spot: Range and Efficiency

One of the key selling points of the Lightning Flash is its impressive range. With a 131-kWh battery pack, it boasts a range of up to 510 KM on a single charge. This range hits the sweet spot for many truck owners who want the convenience of an electric vehicle without compromising on their ability to tackle long drives or use their truck for work. It's the ideal balance between practicality and eco-friendliness.

The Lightning Flash is also equipped with a state-of-the-art regenerative braking system, which helps maximize efficiency. When you lift off the accelerator or apply the brakes, the electric motors reverse roles and become generators, converting kinetic energy back into electrical energy to recharge the battery. This not only improves efficiency but also extends the truck's range.

Charging an EV has never been easier, thanks to Ford's efforts to simplify the process. The Lightning Flash supports both AC and DC fast charging. On a 150 kW DC fast charger, you can get up to 54 miles of range in just 10 minutes. Ford also offers a home charging solution, allowing you to conveniently charge your truck in your own garage.

The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash is not just a truck; it's a symbol of progress in the automotive industry. It combines the reliability and versatility of the F-150 lineup with the power and efficiency of electric propulsion, setting a new standard for what a pickup truck can be. It's a "greatest hits" album that showcases Ford's ability to innovate and adapt to the changing automotive landscape.

As we move toward an electric future, the Lightning Flash stands as a shining example of how tradition and innovation can come together to create something truly exceptional. It's a truck that offers the best of both worlds, and it's poised to make a significant impact on the way we view and use pickup trucks. The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash is not just a vehicle; it's a statement of what's possible when tradition and innovation unite in pursuit of a greener, more electrifying future.

Latest project from CALLUM to make global public debut at Concours on Savile Row

CALLUM SKYE, the first own brand vehicle fully developed in-house by the British design and engineering business CALLUM, will be seen in public for the first time at Concours on Savile Row, London on 22-23 May 2024.

The pioneering, high-performance, all-wheel-drive, multi-terrain electric vehicle was announced in November 2023 to global critical acclaim. The first running prototype will be displayed outside Edward Sexton’s store throughout the free-to-attend event that celebrates the long history that car manufacturers and tailors share.

Engineered to offer an exhilarating and rewarding driving experience both on- and off-road, SKYE has been crafted to ensure the utmost capability, refinement and beauty for discerning adventurers. As an all-electric vehicle, it’s powered by a 42kWh battery with anticipated range of 170 miles, with the option to specify an ultra-fast charging battery for full charge in under ten minutes. Measuring 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, and weighing just 1,150kg, it boasts sportscar performance with 0-60mph achieved in under four seconds.

“The CALLUM SKYE is bold, beautifully engineered and crafted with refinement and craftsmanship. The same can be said for the world-leading bespoke tailoring that exists on Savile Row. We can’t wait to see and hear the reactions of event visitors who will be the first to see SKYE in person,” says David Fairbairn, managing director, CALLUM. “Compact, capable and extremely beautiful, we’re confident that this representation of the SKYE exterior will turn heads, as we invite those interested in commissioning a CALLUM SKYE to reserve their build slot.”
