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 and has remained in high demand ever since. 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, as Ford Authority reported earlier today, and now we know exactly how many units of the all-electric pickup FoMoCo sold in July, courtesy of the automaker’s latest sales report.
Ford sold a grand total of 2,173 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning pickups in July, the model’s best sales month since its launch back in May. That represents a significant increase over the trucks’ sales of 1,837 units in June and brings the Lighting’s cumulative year-to-date sales to 4,469 units, nearly doubling the previous total.
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.
