The electric F-150 will be able to double as a home power station when it's not doing truck things.
The electric Ford F-150 Lightning will be able to serve as a knight in painted aluminium in the event of a natural disaster or power outage by
feeding its stored energy back into owners' homes when it's not blazing to 60 mph in a claimed 4.5 seconds or doing truck things with up to 10,000 pounds in tow.
In prior tests, we have used the 7.6 kW available from the bed-mounted outlets of the F-150 Hybrid to power a house as well as supply a Ford Mustang Mach-E with some electricity.
Similar to this, GMC just revealed the 2024 Hummer would have 6.6 kW of Ultium battery pack draining power.
The following step will be taken by The Lightning.
The CCS charging port seen in Level 3 fast chargers is present in Ford's 80-amp Charge Station Pro with Intelligent Backup Power.
The F-150 Lightning is capable of feeding 9.6 kilowatts of power through the larger bottom ports of the CCS plug,
through the Charge Station Pro, and back into a home's power panel when connected to the Charge Station Pro,
which is optional with the Standard Range battery pack but standard with the Extended Range pack.
The Charge Station Pro switches back to charging the Lightning's battery once the grid has electricity again.
Ford claims that based on the national average of a home using 30.0 kWh per day, the Extended Range battery can supply a home for up to three days.
