2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Order Conversions Begin Again This Summer

Since the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning was revealed early last year, FoMoCo has remained consistent in saying that its first-ever all-electric F-150 will launch this spring. That was confirmed by the fact that the first wave of order holders have already received scheduled for production emails. The second wave of 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning order conversion emails went out back in January, but we’re still waiting for the next wave to go out, which will apparently happen this summer with deliveries following in the fall, according to Emma Bergg, Ford’s director of EV communications, who shared this information in response to a customer question on Twitter.

It’s currently unclear how many 2022 F-150 Lightning models will ultimately be produced, but Ford recently revealed that it won’t be able to fulfill all of its customer orders in this model year due to production constraints. Previously, Ford had a goal of ramping up F-150 Lightning production at the Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center to 80,000 units per year by January 2023, and 150,000 annually by 2025. Because of higher-than-expected demand, the automaker recently announced that it will instead ramp production up to 150,000 units annually by mid-2023.

Meanwhile, while some reservation holders have been surprised by markups, the automaker recently warned dealers against such practices and revealed that most are charging MSRP for the new EV pickup, which will come with a one-year no-sale provision. Earlier today, FoMoCo also revealed the F-150 Lightning’s official EPA estimated range figures, which are better than originally expected – at least in certain models.

    If you own a vehicle, nobody can tell you whether you can sell it or not. If a couple of hundred people flip it to some fool willing to pay stupid money for it, so be it.

      i agree. However, Ford won’t allow the dealer to sell the lightning to a customer if they dont sign the agreement stating they wont flip it for the first year of ownership.

        Do you think that Ford will spend the money and resources enforcing that rule?

          I doubt many will want to flip this vehicle, but Ford has deep enough pockets to enforce the agreement.

          The problem with connected vehicles is that your “network administrator” can shut you off remotely.

      If you purchase something with conditions or provisions, you agree to those conditions and provisions with your signature on the sales contract. This contract is a legally binding document, not a cash register receipt. You would certainly use that same document to hold the manufacturer/dealer responsible for ensuring the vehicle had the features and equipment you paid for.

        I recommend that everyone who intends to buy this vehicle contact their state’s Attorney General office and ask for a legal opinion regarding the legality of this provision.

    I Cancelled my Reservation!!!!! I placed my reservation within the First weeks that were available and NEVER Got any notifications from anyone??? I placed my order for an ICE F-150 5.0 V8!!!! The Heck with sitting around waiting to CHARGE a TRUCK I can’t even get into the Ordering System…… Good Luck Towing “anything” “anywhere” with the EV Lightning, Unless you plan on a 40/50/60/90 minute wait while your TRUCK is being Charged, If the Charger don’t shut down on you right in the Middle of the Charging Process????

      Would you like some cheese to go with your whine? What kind of idiot puts in a reservation for a vehicle that obviously doesn’t meet their needs?
