Need a Boost? F-150 Lightning, PowerBoost Can Charge Other EVs


As if the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning didn't have enough cool features, Ford has revealed that it can also charge other EVs. Thanks to the electric truck's 7.2-kilowatt and 9.6-kilowatt Pro Power Onboard, you'll be able to give other EV drivers a jump in a moment of need.

All you'll need is the standard Ford Mobile Power Cord and an aftermarket power adaptor, and you'll be able to power up any other EV with an SAE J1772 charge port. It works on other Ford vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E and E-Transit van - you can even re-charge another F-150 Lightning.

If you own or are looking at a 2021-22 Ford F-150 with the PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 and optional 7.2-kilowatt Pro Power Onboard, you'll also have vehicle-to-vehicle charging capabilities. Pro Power Onboard also acts as a convenient generator for everything from televisions to lighting to power tools, making it an incredibly useful tool for active drivers.

"Taking power on the road or having extra energy at home brings a lot of convenience and security, and using the F-150 Lightning or F-150 hybrid to top off a friend's electric vehicle or help them during an outage is one of the many new benefits our customers gain from our Built Ford Tough electrified trucks," said Patrick Soderborg, Ford e-powertrain systems engineer.

The all-new Ford F-150 Lightning - coming to Riverside Ford this spring - offers even more advantages than the power to charge other EVs. There's also its impressive power, towing and payload capabilities, and technologies like BlueCruise hands-free. Add all that to a truck that can get up to 300 miles on a full charge, and the F-150 Lightning has all the makings of a vehicle made to change the status quo. [1]
