Here’s How Many F-150 Lightning Trucks Were Sold In September

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.

    It’s easy to win in a category where you are the only player. Hummer is not a comparable product, it’s a completely different animal. Rivian, while the R1T is in the same category, Rivan isn’t a player. Rivian doesn’t have the production capacity to be a player.

  2. JDE

    Rivian has sold on average 2,000 per month and they increase that number each quarter. Ford has sold 50,000 F150’s per month for the entire 2022 year. tell me again why they can only squeak out 2800 of these?

    The only one that really cares about the EV F150 is the CEO, he is in with China, to get our gas modeles down so that they can hit us with a electral bomb and wipe all our vehicles out and leave us a foot, don’t buy these over priced vehicles. Was a Ford man for over 45 years, not any more, going to look at GM or RAM for a good old gas truck!

    my worthless opinion about EV is that we have to start somewhere and that’s where we’re at. very early in something that will need to mature, battery tech needs to get allot better (which it has) hopefully increasing usable ranges and load ability, increase battery lifespan or develop batteries that don’t go bad (system that allows regeneration of degraded units),our aging electrical grid (which is precarious at best) needs revamping completely before we tax it to the point of failure, proper charging capabilities need to be standardized (stop burning houses down), and develop a realistic disposal method for the batteries that WILL GO BAD (extremely hazardous waste). these are just the basic issues that have to be overcome before EV is actually viable, i know there are many more but the point is the cart is in front of the horse here and we need to let the tech catch up with our dreams before it all crumbles. i wish we were doing the same with Hydrogen Tech it too has a bright future for us but it’ll need to be initiated .

    Just canceled my reservation for a Lightning. Had been on the list since May 20th 2021. Process has been handled very poorly by Ford since the beginning with little or no updates on status. Spot on the list ended up meaning nothing. My only status from Ford was last month when I was informed that if I wanted a Pro model I wouldn’t get it until 2024 model year at the earliest. Disappointed in the whole situation. When I went to the local dealer to talk about the situation there was an XLT on the floor with a 30k markup. I’ve decided my 2003 F150 will do what I need!

    Hey JRC, I am in the same boat as you are. Ford sent me the “Go get your truck order put in, so I went look back at the diff. level of models available and what you can get or can’t get. With a nearly 6 figure price tag, not including dealer mark up. Now you have to figure if a battery fails out of warranty period, how much it cost to replace it ? $27,000 bucks. That’s how much a small car cost and that’s not any fee for the batteries disposal fee.

    1. JDE

      Your battery is covered for 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, retaining a minimum of 70% of its original capacity over that period. so you know sell it in about a decade, probably will still owe a bunch on it, but yeah if the battery goes below 70% in that time, free replacement. I actually wonder how long replacement batteries will be warranted for?
