Ford Unveils Electric Police Pickup


Ford debuted the electrified F-150 Lightning Pro Special Service Vehicle today.

Along with heavy-duty cloth seats; steel intrusion plates, and roof-mounted LED warning beacons; drivers can access high-tech features like a mobile power source that lights up night-time crime scenes; an electric powertrain that reduces fuel and maintenance costs; and a front trunk with 14.1 cubic feet of lockable storage.

The F-150 Lightning Pro SSV seats five and isn’t just for speeding (though it does include sub-four-second zero-to-60 mph acceleration). This EV can help with accidents or tow a boat or trailer. Standard batteries produce 452 horsepower, 775 lb.-ft. of torque, 7,700 pounds of towing capability, and 2,235 pounds of max payload. Extended-range batteries deliver 580 horsepower and 10,000 pounds of towing capacity.
The zero-emissions police truck is pre-configured to link to a department’s existing fleet of cars; chargers, and management software to cut operating costs and enhance uptime.

In addition, Ford has supplied vehicles to 12,000 US police agencies for over 70 years. However Ford Pro national government sales manager Nate Oscarson stated; “We’re proud to offer America’s first electric police pickup truck to local government customers. Who can use the truck’s game-changing technology to help improve their productivity”.
