On April 26, a kickoff party at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan, will take place. Naturally, you being the Ford superfan that you are, and you'll want to see it, according to the internet, and we'll tell you how to do so. We'll keep an eye on the livestream here, but we will not disclose it until soon.
The event, which will commemorate the fact that the Lightning is the first full-size electric pickup truck to begin full-scale production, is called "Job 1," and it will be livestreamed starting at 1:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Ford's a bit clear on what will happen at the event, but we expect that someone notable will be on hand to press a symbolic red button to begin production lines.
Ford's Lightning pickup has generated significant customer interest, so we're not surprised that the Blue Oval has been going pedal-to-the-metal to get it in production and into those customers' hands as soon as possible.
The Lightning is expected to hit dealers fairly soon with a maximum EPA estimate of 320 miles and, before any tax credits or rebates.
