Our guess is: 115 kWh net/125 kWh total (Standard-Range Battery) and 155 kWh net/170 kWh (Extended-Range Battery)
The unveiling of the Ford F-150 Lightning is already behind us, but despite tons of content, it leaves us without a very important number – battery capacity!
Ford announced only that there will be two battery/range versions:
- Standard-Range Battery with expected EPA range of 230 miles (370 km)
- Extended-Range Battery with expected EPA range of 300 miles (483 km)
Luckily, the manufacturer has revealed charging times from 15 to 100% state-of-charge for a few power levels, which enables us to make some calculations and estimate the battery capacity.
We can guess that the battery capacity in Ford F-150 Lightning is 115 kWh net/125 kWh total in the Standard-Range Battery version and 155 kWh net/170 kWh in the Extended-Range Battery version.
Ford covers the battery (and all EV unique components) with a warranty for 8 years or 100,000 miles. Battery capacity is to retain a minimum of 70% of its original capacity over that period.
Assuming 230 and 300 miles of range, it would be: 161 miles (259 km) and 210 miles (338 km) respectively.
