The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has been a hot commodity since the day FoMoCo revealed the all-electric pickup and has remained one of the most considered electrified vehicles on the market in the months since. Demand for the F-150 Lightning quickly exceeded Ford’s production capacity for the new model, prompting the automaker to stop taking fleet orders back in January, while the commercial-oriented Pro and XLT trim sold out earlier this month. Now, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is completely spoken for, joining the 2022 Ford Super Duty, as Ford Authority reported earlier today, as well as the Ford Mustang Mach-E – which was cut off for retail orders one week ago, the Ford Bronco last month, and the Ford Maverick back in January.
This news comes to us from the official site for the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, which now reads “Due to high demand, the current model year is no longer available for retail order. Contact your dealer for more information.”
This news doesn’t come as a huge surprise given the fact that Ford previously stated that it wouldn’t be able to fulfill all of its F-150 Lightning reservations in the 2022 model year. The automaker began sending out invitations to select reservation holders inviting them to convert those reservations to orders earlier this year, and has since sent out multiple “waves” of order conversion emails ahead of the pickup’s launch.
Ford began scheduling F-150 Lightning models for production back in February, and will hold a special event to mark the EV pickup’s launch tomorrow, April 26th, during a special livestream event at the Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, where the F-150 Lightning is produced.
