2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Has Arrived In All 50 U.S. States

Production of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning began at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center back in April, but the all-electric pickup quickly sold out for the 2022 model year, which means that many reservation holders are going to be waiting a while to take delivery. Regardless, the very first F-150 Lightning deliveries began back in May, and the new model has been quickly spreading across the U.S. In fact, at least one 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has now been delivered in all 50 states, according to the automaker.

As of the end of June, Ford had sold around 4,400 F-150 Lightning pickups, though most of them have been delivered in the states of Texas and California thus far. For around 80 percent of reservation holders, this will be their very first all-electric vehicle, according to a recent survey conducted by the automaker. Thus far, its customers are using the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning for a variety of purposes as well, including everything from towing boats for salmon fishing excursions to charging other EVs.

Meanwhile, the F-150 Lightning remains in high demand and is a regular atop the most considered electrified vehicles list in Kelley Blue Book’s Brand Watch Study, and currently touts the lowest starting MSRP of any EV pickup on the market, too – a mark that Ford apparently set specifically to force Chevy’s hand when pricing the forthcoming Silverado EV.

However, it’s the Lariat – not the entry-level Pro – that’s proving to be the most popular trim thus far, and it’s one that Ford calls the “sweet spot” in the Lightning lineup. Regardless, the F-150 Lightning has received nothing less than stellar critical acclaim since its launch as well, even recently beating out the Rivian R1T in a rather close comparison test.

    2 vehicles for each state. Hi bid wins.

    What about the pathetic 70 mile range when towing. Also the fact you have to wait at least 30 minutes for a charge. No thank you.

    You don’t have to wait at least 30 minutes for a charge. You can unplug any electric vehicle you own anytime you wish. You can unplug as soon as you have enough charge to reach your next destination. And how often do you plan to tow objects 70 miles? It would take a very heavy object to reduce your range down to 70. Most people seldom tow objects so big they reduce their range to 70 miles.

    One of the biggest misconceptions about EVs is that you must take the EV to a charging station. The Lightning changes that! The Lightning is a charging station on wheels!

    So if you don’t have a private parking space, and you park in a different spot every time you go home to your rented room or wherever you sleep, owning an EV can still work for you. All you need is to have enough friends who are willing and able to charge your EV with their Lightnings. This is literally getting more and more practical EVERY DAY. That is one reason why we are so excited. And with community solar and rooftop solar, people can drive for free! It sure beats paying for gas, oil changes, tune-ups, replacement catalytic converters, engine reapirs and maintenance, transmission repairs and maintenance, timing belts, fuel injectors, et cetera.
