Ford is celebrating the start of F-150 Lightning production with a kickoff party at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan on April 26, and the whole thing will be streamed live on the internet. Naturally, you being the Ford superfan that you are, you'll want to watch it -- and we're going to tell you how (spoiler alert: we'll share the livestream here).
The event, which will celebrate the fact that the Lightning is the first full-size electric pickup truck to enter full-scale production, is called "Job 1," and it'll be livestreamed starting at 1:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Ford's a little light on the details of what exactly will happen at the event, but we expect that someone notable will be on hand to press a symbolic, big red button to start the production lines.
Ford's Lightning pickup has been generating considerable 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 set to hit dealers reasonably soon with a maximum EPA estimated range of 320 miles and, but before any tax credits or rebates.
