The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning continues to exceed FoMoCo’s expectations in terms of consumer demand for the all-electric pickup, which far exceeded the automaker’s production capacity from the start. While it works to secure the raw materials it needs to ramp up production in the coming years, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning continues to see sales increase with each passing month. According to The Blue Oval’s August sales report, that trend continued last month, too.
August was the best sales month for the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning thus far as the automaker sold 2,373 units, compared to 4,364 units of the F-150 PowerBoost hybrid. As Ford Authority reported earlier this month, dealer inventory is turning in just eight days, which beat every other model in Ford’s lineup last month, too. Regardless, this result 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.
