Ford has pulled the camouflage off the battery-electric F-150 Lightning, but it will be a while yet until we can actually get our hands on the truck and put it through its paces.

To help tide us over, Ford has produced a voluminous series of videos breaking down various aspects of the Lightning's technology.

The series includes interviews with top engineers on the program and provides useful insight into some of the truck's capability.

“Whether they’re hauling a bed full of firewood through snow or towing a trailer on a road trip, customers need to be able to rely on their truck’s performance,” said Linda Zhang, chief engineer, F-150 Lightning.

“This all-electric truck has been engineered with dual in-board motors, which means it can take on rough terrain," she continued." Our team of engineers has run the same arduous test regimen our F-150 customers have learned to expect from Ford.”
