2022 Top Electric Pickup Trucks

Electric vehicles look quite certain to be the future of the automobile industry, and with Tesla leading the charge in the category, it is good we take another look at various competitors. Here are the best 2022 Top Electric Pickup Trucks on the market now.

Ford F-150 Lightning

With 2022 Top Electric Pickup Trucks, we would like to start with Ford F-150 Lightning.Ford builds the best-selling pickup truck in the country, so its decision to create an all-electric version is a big deal. The Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck is due to go on sale in spring 2022 with a starting price of $41,669 for the entry-level Pro model. Pricier XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trims will also be available.

With standard all-wheel-drive courtesy of an electric motor at each axle, the F-150 Lightning is fed energy by either a standard 98.0-kWh battery pack or an available 131.0-kWh unit. The former affords a combined peak of 426 horsepower and a manufacturer-estimated driving range of around 230 miles.

Chevrolet Silverado EV

Unlike the Ford F-150 Lightning, which shares many of its body panels with its gas-fed counterpart, the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV looks almost nothing like the Silverado 1500 it complements in the bow-tie brand’s lineup. Regardless, the all-wheel-drive Silverado EV packs plenty of promise. Credit its use of General Motors’s Ultium electric vehicle components, which allow the truck to travel up to a manufacturer-estimated 400 miles on a full charge. Look for sales to start in 2023, with Chevy prioritizing the fleet-oriented Silverado EV WT grade over the likes of the more stylish (and pricey) Trail Boss and RST trims.

Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla wants people to forget everything they know about pickup trucks. With a weird wedge shape and a DeLorean-esque stainless-steel shell, the Cybertruck certainly departs from the segment’s long-held conventions. Oh, and it’s dentproof, scratchproof, and allegedly bulletproof. But if Tesla’s ambitious claims that it can tow up to 14,000 pounds and drive more than 500 miles on a single charge are true, the Cybertruck will be more capable than even the current Ford F-150 and will have a longer range than any EV on the market.

The all-electric pickup also boasts some impressive performance claims, with an estimated zero-to-60-mph time under three seconds and an adjustable air suspension that can provide up to 16 inches of ground clearance. If it sounds like Tesla intended the Cybertruck to be more capable off-road than a Jeep, quicker than a Porsche, and stronger than all of the best-selling half-ton trucks, well, that’s probably not too far-fetched. Tesla originally said the vehicle would appear in 2022, but now it has removed the Cybertruck’s production timeline from its website altogether, so when—or if—the Cybertruck will appear is anybody’s guess.

Lordstown Endurance

Lordstown announced some time ago that it was accepting $1000 deposits for the Endurance, and the startup EV maker has since released the full details of its upcoming truck. The Endurance will have a range of more than 250 miles, according to Lordstown, thanks to its 109.0-kWh battery pack. The pickup will have a towing capacity of 7500 pounds and a horsepower peak of 600 horsepower.

Intended as a fleet vehicle—although it will be available to individual customers—the Endurance has a governed speed of 80 mph. Production of the Endurance has been delayed several times, and the company has suffered financial difficulties. The latest plan is to sell the still-unfinished factory to iPhone maker Foxconn, which would assemble the truck. As of this writing, the Endurance is due to go on sale late in 2022.
