Ford to reveal electric F-150 truck next week

Ford Motors announced on Monday its all-electric truck F-150 will be called Lightning and is scheduled to be revealed on May 19. The showing will be broadcasted from the Ford World Headquarters with over 30 ways to watch the streaming.

"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. America's favorite vehicle for nearly half a century is going digital and fully electric," said Jim Farley, Ford's President and CEO.

The automaker promised the electric F-150 to be a true work truck. The company has already used the name Lightning before in street performance trucks in the 1990s.
