With 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning deliveries taking place over the entire U.S. in the past couple of months, the new EV pickup is beginning to populate our roadways, at least in smaller quantities. Regardless, consumer interest in the F-150 Lightning remains high, and that same model is also currently dominating its admittedly small segment at the moment. But as one might imagine, this high level of consumer interest, coupled with small supply, means that dealer stock is turning in a mere eight days in spite of hefty markups, according to Ford’s August sales report.
That figure is also good enough to make the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning the fastest-turning vehicle in The Blue Oval’s lineup at the moment, a pretty impressive feat given how quickly other hot entities like the Ford Bronco and Ford Maverick are turning. Regardless, it also isn’t terribly surprising considering the fact that the Lightning has become a mainstay on Kelley Blue Book’s list of the most considered electrified vehicles in its Brand Watch report.
As Ford Authority reported last week, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is attracting customers from other brands at a high rate, but its three biggest conquests are the the Ram pickup, Tesla Model 3, and Tesla Model X. Meanwhile, the vast majority of the automaker’s EV sales have gone to those that have come from other brands, too.
Those that do wind up purchasing a new F-150 Lightning are set to receive a special perk – 250 kilowatt-hours of free charging at Electrify America stations through the FordPass Rewards program, which is equivalent to 575 miles of range or nearly three “fill-ups” for pickups equipped with the standard range battery.
