Just think of “range” as the “distance to empty” indicator you’ve seen in a gas-powered car. The amount of charge an EV’s battery holds is comparable to the size of a conventional car’s fuel tank....less
Planning an Even Longer Trip? Let Us Help
If you need to travel beyond your one-charge range, the Intelligent Range feature helps you get there with confidence. It accurately estimates how much range you have left as you drive, based on factors like traffic, ambient temperature, and driving speed.171 Use it to cover the maximum miles before plugging in at a public charging station along your route....less
High speeds have a negative effect on an EV’s range, but heavy-footed acceleration affects it even more. Moderate acceleration helps get more from every charge.
Does Temperature Affect EV Range?
Outside temperatures will have an impact on range. But, here's a trick for EV drivers: "precondition" the vehicle180 while plugged in. It uses your home's energy to pre-heat or pre-cool the vehicle's battery and can even heat or cool the interior cabin. Easily pre-program your pre-conditioning times based on your schedule.
Can You Tow With an EV?
With an F-150® Lightning®, you bet. However, just like with a gas engine, towing will impact range. Because trailers naturally add weight and aerodynamic drag. So plan ahead. Find public charging locations along your route, right from your touchscreen, with Ford Power My Trip.
How Long Do EV Batteries Last?
Ford EV batteries are covered for 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, guaranteed to retain a minimum of 70% of their original capacity.*
*The High Voltage Battery is not covered if it is damaged due to improper vehicle storage. Refer to your Owner's Manual for required storage procedures necessary to protect the High Voltage Battery.
*With standard range battery. Based on full charge. Demonstrated range reflecting current capability based on testing consistent with U.S. EPA MCT drive cycle methodology (www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/pdfs/EPA test procedure for EVs-PHEVs-11-14-2017.pdf) at ALVW (Adjusted Loaded Vehicle Weight). Actual range varies with conditions such as external environment, vehicle use, upfits and alterations, vehicle maintenance, lithium-ion battery age and state of health.
