Good news for anyone waiting on the highly anticipated Ford F-150 Lightning — the official EPA ratings have just been released, and the electric pickup gets an estimated range of 230 miles (370 km) and an efficiency of 68 MPGe.

The F-150 will soon enter production, and starts at $68,000 for the XLT base version according to Ford’s ‘Build & Price’ configurator. The Lariat version starts at $80,000, while the Platinum starts at $110,000. Using the configurator, Canadian drivers can choose their model, package options, colours, and accessories to get an idea of what their dream F-150 will cost them.

The F-150’s efficiency rating is especially impressive, as it shifts the electric pickup ahead of any other gas-powered pickup truck on the market. Compared with other electric pickups, the F-150 still fares very well; however, the Rivian R1T takes the title with a combined efficiency of 70 MPGe. Interestingly, though, the F-150 Lightning is a little more efficient than the R1T in the city (76 vs 74 MPGe), but significantly less efficient on highways (61 vs 68 MPGe).

Notably, the base version of the F-150 boasts a smaller, lighter and more efficient battery pack compared to the R1T, which relies on a larger battery pack that offers 314 miles of range (505 km).
