Why Ford Is Done Selling the 2022 F-150 Lightning
By CHRIS DAVIES
Announced in mid-2021, Ford's F-150 Lightning promised to be the fastest-accelerating and have the most torque of any F-150 so far — all with the affordable price tag of just $40,000! Given all of these features, why is Ford done selling the all-wheel drive electric truck?
Overwhelmed by the EV’s success, Ford closed the books on 2022, stating on its site, “Due to high demand, the current model year is no longer available for retail order." Truck enthusiasts hoping to get in on the first wave of F-150 Lightning production will have to wait, unfortunately.
Production of the new EV was always going to be constrained, and the global supply chain crisis didn’t help. Ford has increased its aim for the F-150 Lightning's production, and hopes to be building 150,000 of the electric trucks annually by 2023, but that still means a wait.
