The new feature makes its debut with the F-150 Lightning.

Ford’s recent vehicle releases have generated huge interest and excitement, which has turned into big demand for the new models. The Bronco and Mustang Mach-E have both seen extended wait times for new orders, and are generally well-reviewed. The F-150 Lightning is coming soon as Ford’s first electric pickup truck, and while it’s already generated an astonishing number of reservations, its range estimates were just finalized and they’re better than initially expected, which will likely stoke demand even more.

The 320-mile range estimate is 20 miles longer than Ford’s original estimates, and puts the F-150 Lightning in a strong position. That said, the higher range number is only available on the XLT, Lariat, and Pro models, which are available with an extended-range battery. The Platinum trim comes standard with the long-range battery and is rated at up to 300 miles per charge. The 230-mile range offered by standard battery in the Pro, XLT, and Lariat trims matches Ford’s initial estimates.

The Lightning is due soon. Ford saw massive demand for the truck, and had to limit reservations to prevent extended delays for customers. Though its numbers are strong, the F-150 Lightning’s range falls short of the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1, which features a 329-mile range. It’s a bit better than the Rivian R1T, whose currently available batter pack limits range to 314 miles.
