According to reports, the brand new 2024 Ford Maverick Lightning will soon be available. This all-electric model has more power and luxury. The small pickup was a huge success due to its low price and an efficient hybrid powertrain. It is now time to introduce an electric version.
Blue Oval has already filed a trademark application for the Maverick Lightning brand name. This is great news. We expect a similar setup to the F-150 Lightning model. However, the pickup may differ from the F-150 truck in some areas. We are still waiting for the official unveiling, but here’s all you need to know about the model.
2024 Ford Maverick Lightning Design
We don’t anticipate anything revolutionary in the 2024 Ford Maverick Lightning model. While the electric version will likely retain the same form, there are always options for unique details. We might be able to see some details that emphasize the all-electric nature of the model, such as the closed-off grille and unique wheels.
The overall layout will however remain the same. It will also be available in a crew-cab layout with a 4-foot bed and a 5-inch bed, just like the hybrid and gasoline models. This model has a 121.1-inch wheelbase and measures 199.7 in length, 83.5 in width, 68.7 in height, and 83.5 in width including mirrors. The heaviest versions weigh more than 3.700 pounds. We believe that the all-electric model could easily exceed 4.000 due to the batteries.
Dimensions & Colors
The styling of this model is still unknown as it isn’t yet officially released. Recent renderings of the 2024 Ford Maverick Lightning have been done. These renderings seem plausible as the regular Maverick, which is essentially a new model, has been rendered. The electric version will certainly get some improvements but it won’t change the original concept.
We’re eager to see new wheels, a closed-off grille, and a new lighting signature. This version will have the same exterior colors as the base model, including Velocity Blue, Cyber Orange, and Area 51. We have seen electric pickup trucks so far. However, Maverick Lightning will be smaller which will be another highlight. Maverick Lightning is 199.7 inches in length and has a 121-inch wheelbase.
The interior of the Maverick, while it is a very affordable pickup truck, is quite impressive. According to reports, the upcoming Ford Maverick Lightning 2024 should offer even more luxury. The current version offers a functional cabin with high-tech features that are easy to use, such as an 8-inch touchscreen. This EV will gain additional technology, just like any other.
Most likely, the screen will be larger and Ford’s Blue Cruise hands-free system. Although we don’t know much about the trim levels, Maverick Lightning will undoubtedly provide high levels of comfort in every trim level. The compact pickup has a lot of cargo space, and the EV version will have even more.
Charging and Driving Range
The 2024 Ford Maverick Lightning, an all-electric vehicle, is a model similar to the F-150 Lightning. The Maverick has a standard hybrid powertrain that sits on the C2 platform. The fully electric model can be converted to another architecture. The C2 platform is flexible, so it makes sense to modify the existing chassis. Base Maverick Lightning will be equipped with a single motor.
A Mustang Mach-E base Mustang Mach-E crossover has 265 horsepower. A dual-motor setup is possible in more expensive models, which will provide more power and standard AWD. A smaller pickup will offer a minimum of 300 miles of driving range. Blue Oval will provide a 150-kW charging station.
2024 Ford Maverick Lightning Pricing & Release Date
The 2024 Ford Maverick Lightning’s starting price will be around $30,000 which is very affordable. A small, electric pickup that offers great luxury and maneuverability seems like a good idea, especially at such a low price. The Maverick Lightning won’t have any direct competitors for at least another year. According to reports, sales will begin next year.
