Ford electric cars have been winning people’s hearts for a long time Ford fans with an upgraded management experience and new features. Electric car owners use their car designs and add-on technology, e.g vehicle to load (V2L) to upgrade your Halloween festivities by taking tricks or treats to the next level. This Halloween, several Ford EV owners showed off the innovative features and added benefits of going electric.

You may notice more Ford EVs roaming around your neighborhood as the automaker’s interest in its EV models grows.

Is it instant torque, better technology, or a smooth, emission-free ride? Either way, electric cars are finally getting the attention they deserve. However, EV drivers are finding that their ride offers more than just getting them from A to B.

Ford electric cars, in particular F-150 Lightninghave been used to provide portable power in emergency situations such as during the flood in Kentucky and, most recently, Hurricane Ian.

There were even Ford electric cars used to make a movie the action takes place in the forest, including everything from the effects on the set to the cameras and even the crew’s coffee maker.

How is this possible, you ask? Ford electric vehicles, including the F-150 Lighting and Electronic transportequipped with vehicle-to-load (V2L) technology, or as Ford calls it Pro Power Onboard.

Pro Power Onboard turns Ford electric vehicles into powerful mobile generators with up to 9.6 kW and 11 outlets. Four in the Mega Power Frunk, two inside, four in the bed and last but not least, 240V in the bed.

The electricity output is enough to provide backup power or even shoot a movie, but a few Ford EV drivers are taking it a step further by using their electric vehicles to boost the holiday spirit. Halloween is a time when ghosts and goblins “come alive” and Ford’s electric cars amp up the holiday like never before.

Ford electric vehicles enhance the Halloween experience

Jace Kraft Miller and Justin Koenig of Cleveland, Ohio were among the first to order the Ford F-150 Lightning after it was unveiled in May 2021. After test driving one at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center launch event in Dearborn, they were sold and couldn’t wait to get their hands on one.

They were able to place an order for the Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat ER model in June 2022, and the electric vehicle arrived on October 7th, just in time for Halloween. Jace and Justin were excited that it happened before the holidays so they could recreate their display on their Mustang Mach-E model last Halloween.

The couple took two work lamps with a pair of Philips Hue bulbs and plugged them into Mega Power Frunk outlets. They then grabbed all the pumpkins and decorations they could find to fill the Frunk.

Since Jace and Justin live on the main road, they say they don’t have many pieces, but they say it’s a fun way to get involved in the Halloween celebration.

Jace tells me that “the experience was really beyond anything we imagined,” adding, “we knew it was going to be good, but it’s so quiet and fast.”

They both work in the roofing industry in Cleveland and use the Ford F-150 Lightning in the field every day. Since the ladder and roof tools are always in the bed, they take advantage of the additional storage space of the Frunk.

While boating season is winding down in most places, Joyce tells me they were able to get out once last weekend and were “pleasantly surprised at the efficiency” of towing their 21-foot, 5,000-pound boat.

Joe’s F-150 Lightning Lariat XR

Joe from New York used his electric Ford truck to power the 9-foot Jack Skellington (pictured above) from a 240V socket on the bed, while the floodlights, pumpkins and animatronic Jack Skellington were connected to the Mega Power Frunk.

Joe took delivery of his Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat XR on June 3rd and told me he’s loved “every mile” of the 11,000 miles so far. He says he traveled more this past summer than he ever has before.

Joe says the “sports car acceleration” is the most luxurious truck he’s driven in 10 years. He also used a Ford Lightning for towing. Joe took his 36-foot, 9,500-pound trailer to Cape Cod, Maine.
