Could Ford be working on an F-150 Lightning performance spec?

One of the slides of a presentation Ford published not long ago depicts an all-electric F-150 Lightning truck looking different than its currently available version. Motor1 believes it could be the new top spec.

The vehicle in the teaser pic seems to ride lower than usual, but it could just as well be an illusion or a deliberately chosen camera angle. Ford itself provides no further information about this mysterious new version. The good news is that the premiere should not be too far away – early summer at the latest.

The F-150 Lightning is currently being produced in two main versions. Both use two electric motors, but while the affordable spec has 430 PS (424 hp / 316 kW) at its command, the high-end version enjoys 571 PS (563 hp / 420 kW). Depending on battery capacity, the battery range can be either 230 or 300 miles (370 or 483 kilometers).

It is unclear whether the car pictured in the presentation is even intended for mass production, though. As you may have noticed, it is depicted next to an insane Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 Concept armed with seven e-motors producing 1,419 PS (1,400 hp / 1,044 kW). Standing next to them is the one-off Ford Pro Electric SuperVan with roughly 2,000 horsepower (1,500 kilowatts) at its disposal. This means that the Lightning shown in the promo may prove to be yet another show exhibit, rather than a production truck.
