The Lightning isn't officially sold in the UK; but where there's a will, there's a way...

is so late to the party it’ll probably arrive once the music’s died and everyone’s either left or passed out.

Unlike the Cybertruck, which is especially divisive thanks to its wedge-like monolithic styling and because no one can agree on when it’ll arrive, the F-150 is, well, just a truck that happens to be powered by electricity. It looks like any other F-Series pickup, only with the front grille blanked off and a portrait-style infotainment screen similar to that of the Mustang Mach-E. No gimmicks, no cyberpunk-inspired styling.

What you do get, however, is truck that gets pretty close to the piston powered F-150s while, on paper, being a touch kinder on the environment. It’s capable of towing 4.5 tonnes of, er, stuff, and can haul a smidgen over a tonne in its cargo bed. Yes, it’s not quite as capable as the ICE versions, but one advantage the Lightning has over the others is that it has a 408-litre front boot – or ‘frunk’ as they say across the pond – in place of a V6 or V8.

How about 571hp for Extended Range models, which will get you from 0-60mph in under four seconds – not far off the performance of the monstrous Raptor R version? A 300-mile range is enough to get you to the local shops and back in rural America, but that’ll get you halfway to John O’Groats from Land’s End here.

‘But Ford isn’t selling the Lightning in the UK’, I hear you protest. And you’d be right, but as many as three are said to have been imported here, and. It’s one of the higher-end Lariat editions, packing a full leather interior and an eight-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system. Factor in the import duties that the previous owner would have forked out for, and the £129,950 price tag begins to make a bit more sense.
