Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck has received more than 1,60,000 reservations so far. According to a recent survey done by the automaker on F-150 Lightning retail reservation holders, around 80 per cent have never owned a battery-electric vehicle before and more than half have never used a Ford vehicle. Another research by Google and Ipsos reflected that about 58 per cent of people who are planning to buy a new vehicle in the next six months are considering buying either a hybrid or a fully electric vehicle. Therefore, Ford is taking the opportunity through this campaign to give the customers an immersive and informative experience.
