Ford seems to be marketing the lightning to fleets for business owners and ignoring the farmers. I have a small rural Florida farm and am an early adopter of solar and driver of a Chevy Bolt. I have an Silverado 2500 for my farm and towing vehicle. I was attracted to lightning for the backup power ability to run a 240v pump for my livestock. I have a portable generator but the f150 would be easier for quick short term use. I like the Pro for farm use much more than the more expensive models but need the 240v of the extended range or at least the 240v electric box. This is what most farmers need in an electric, but most of us don’t need a fleet of 5. I am not in any rush for delivery, have a Cybertruck reservation and will see what Chevy offers in January, but would really prefer the Pro model If I can get a 240v power source
Yours sounds like a great application for a Lightning. Remember that the 9.6kW Pro Power Onboard that includes 240v in the bed is supposed to be available as an option on all models. It is unclear if it only comes with the Extended Range battery. At the Lightning event in DC, I was told the 9.6kW Pro Power Onboard was an option for the Standard Range battery as well. We will know for sure once the build & price tool comes out.
