Lego Introduces New Ford F-150 Lightning

An EV pickup that has no trouble hauling the goods

-

Ford’s F-150 Lightning pickup truck has had a few issues of late, most notably how cruising range is impacted by towing. If towing is of paramount importance to you yet you have an interest in EVs, then perhaps this F-150 Lightning that is at Florida’s Legoland theme park will do the trick.

As part of Legoland’s “brick build fleet,” this F-150 Lightning has become a permanent display outside the park’s Ford Driving School attraction. It was built via a partnership between Legoland Florida Resort and Southern Ford Dealers group to commemorate Ford’s foray into EV trucks. A group of 15 Master Model Builders (yes, they exist) spent more than 1,600 hours in aggregate assembling 320,740 Lego bricks to form a Lightning that measures more than 19 feet long and almost seven feet across.

The whole build weighs 3,730 pounds, which is about 3,000 lighter than a real one. This can be attributed to the special lightweight Lego batteries that were utilized. Headlights and taillights even work! Visit here to watch a video of the build come to life, one brick at a time.

The F-150 Lightning joins a Ford Explorer that was built a little more than 10 years ago, though the Lightning is Legoland’s first EV.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
