In the rural Michigan community Nicholas Schmidt lives, pickup trucks are a way of life.

On Thursday, Schmidt and the city he calls home — Standish, Michigan, population less than 1,500 — made history with the handover of a key fob. He became owner No. 1 of Ford Motor Co.’s first electric pickup, the F-150 Lightning.
