With 580 hp this truck could easily do 150+ mph but I don't think Ford wants anyone going that fast in their workhorse truck. I'm assuming the F150L has a speed limiter, but I don't seem to be able to find what the limited maximum speed is. I'm not interested in maxing out the speed in in my F150L but I am curious and Texas does have some of the highest speed limits in the country.

Does anyone know the maximum speed rating for the all-electric F150L is?
After about 100mph, I’m pretty sure the speedometer is inversely related at a 1:1 ratio to the battery meter. 0.0000001mi/kWh!

this recent thread is from a member taking his lightning to the drag strip: 12.7 @ 103 MPH with a .05 reaction time.

I'm jealous of you folk squeezing a few more mph out of your lightning than I have been able to.

After repeated attempts, using different drive modes etc .... My 2023 ER XLT is reliably limited to 105 mph

The time slip was included for the people that thought I made the information up. I should have ran a little longer and found the top speed. Next time I will.
