Lightning Systems receives OK to sell its all-electric Ford F-59 in California

Colorado-based Lightning Systems, a developer of zero-emission drivetrains for commercial fleets, has received an Executive Order from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for its Ford F-59 platform, commonly used in food truck and delivery van applications. The Executive Order confirms that Lightning System’s F-59 has met emissions and efficiency standards and can be legally sold in the state.

The latest Lightning Electric powertrain for the Ford F-59 chassis is available for all F-59 variants. Lightning Systems offers the platform in 80-mile and 110-mile range versions. The vehicle produces a peak power of 180 kW, a torque rating of 1071 Nm (790 lb-ft), and a top speed of 65 MPH (software limited).

According to Lightning, charging takes about 2 hours (80-mile range) or 2.5 hours (110-mile range) with the DC fast charging option (using standard CCS Combo charging).

As a fleet vehicle, Lightning System’s Ford F-59 will be eligible for incentives through CARB’s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP). Fleets receive the voucher discount at the point of sale while HVIP-approved vendors and dealers process the required documentation. Eligible California customers can receive up to $ 100,000 in HVIP voucher amounts to go towards the price of the F-59.

“Our customers have been asking for this platform because the Ford F-59 chassis is economical, high quality, and widely used by our customers in delivery truck and food truck applications,” said Lightning Systems CEO Tim Reeser. “We can now offer the platform with significant savings to our California customers by taking advantage of the HVIP vouchers currently available.”
