The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has far exceeded FoMoCo’s expectations in terms of consumer demand for the all-electric pickup, which also exceeded the automaker’s production capacity for the EV pickup. While The Blue Oval 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 increases with each passing month. In fact, August was the best sales month for the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning thus far as the automaker moved a total of 2,373 units. Now, however, according to Ford’s September sales report, that number actually declined over the past month.
In September, Ford sold a grand total of 1,918 F-150 Lightning pickups, which is a bit less than August but still enough to keep it atop the EV pickup sales charts. The Lightning is also still turning in just eight days on dealer lots, a blazing fast rate that is identical to August’s figure, too. Regardless, these results aren’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 via its Brand Watch report.
As Ford Authority recently reported, the F-150 Lightning is also attracting customers from other brands at a high rate, but its three biggest conquests are the Ram pickup, Tesla Model 3, and Tesla Model X. Meanwhile, the vast majority of the automaker’s EV sales have gone to customers that have come from other brands, too.
Aside from winning over new vehicle shoppers, the Lightning also continues to rack up critical acclaim, most recently earning a spot on the 2022 Wards Auto 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems list, as well as being named a finalist for 2023 North American Truck of the Year.
