Ford to Introduce High-Performance Variant of F-150 Lightning
[Digital Today AI Reporter] Ford is currently in the process of developing a high-performance version of its popular F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck. According to Inside EV, a leading electric vehicle media outlet, Ford recently filed a trademark application for the name “Flash” with the US Patent and Trademark Office. Industry experts speculate that this upcoming variant will be called the F-150 Flash.
Earlier this year, following Ford’s collaboration with Red Bull for the 2026 F1 season, Ford CEO Jim Farley had the opportunity to assess an exciting new iteration of the F-150 Lightning alongside Red Bull’s test driver Daniel Ricardo.
The current F-150 Lightning can achieve a remarkable 0-60 mph time of 4 seconds when equipped with the extended battery pack, delivering an impressive 580 horsepower. In comparison, Ford’s recently released Raptor R manages to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, boasting 700 horsepower. Based on these figures, it is expected that the F-150 Flash will surpass the performance of the Raptor R.
For reference, the only electric truck currently available on the market is Rivian’s R1T, which boasts an impressive 835 horsepower and covers 0-60 mph in just 3 seconds.
Pricing for the Ford F-150 Lightning starts at $61,869 and reaches up to $99,269. Therefore, industry insiders predict that the Flash version will likely have a starting price of at least $100,000 or higher.

According to Inside EV, an electric vehicle media outlet on the 26th (local time), Ford recently applied for a trademark called Flash with the US Patent and Trademark Office, and this version is expected to use the name F-150 Flash.
