I was really surprised at the $40K starting price. Yes, that is a work trim aimed at contractors and fleet users but that is still much lower than I expected.

The other big news to me was the vehicle to grid capability. Ford's home charger can flow electricity both ways and the F-150 Lightening can provide 9.6 kW to the home. It can be set to automatically cycle on and off when grid power fails and then returns.

This seems like a very strong entry into the EV market and should be a sales success.
