Lightning’s Gen 2 Model of Electric Ford Transit Named in CARB Order
July 15, 2019  Betsy Lillian


Lightning Systems has had the Generation 2 model of its Lightning Electric
system for the Ford Transit named in an executive order from the California
Air Resources Board (CARB).

According to the company, this step is a prerequisite for sales of the
vehicle in California. The new vehicle also is available nationwide.

The Lightning Electric Ford Transit is a battery-electric drivetrain package
for the Ford Transit 350HD, used by commercial and government fleets.
Certified dynamometer test results demonstrated that the Ford Transit 350HD
equipped with the Lightning Electric drivetrain achieved 61 MPGe on EPA city
and highway routes. The vehicle platform is offered in 60- and
120-mile-range versions.

“Our new Gen 2 model is an ideal vehicle for commercial and government
fleets that operate delivery and logistics trucks, food and beverage
vehicles, and shuttle and paratransit buses,” says Brian Johnston, director
of regulatory affairs at Lightning Systems. “We’re very pleased with the
test results that not only proved our advances in overall vehicle
performance, but came at no reduction to overall cabin space. They also
demonstrated excellent wall-to-wheels efficiency of the onboard charging

Thanks to the new thermally managed NMC lithium-ion battery, the new
Generation 2 all-electric powertrain has 20% longer range than Gen 1, with
battery configuration options for 60- or 120-mile ranges (based on certified
dynamometer testing). In addition, these new batteries are all housed under
the floor of the vehicle, with no impact on ground clearance.

The latest powertrain offers a peak power of 160 kW (equivalent 215
horsepower), a torque rating of 994 Nm (733 lb-ft) and a top speed of 65 mph
(software limited). The electric system is available for the Ford Transit
passenger van, cargo van, cutaway and chassis cab models.
