The F-150 Lightning Production Has Begun
On April 26, Ford marked the launch of the all-new, electric F-150 Lightning pickup – a milestone moment in America’s shift to electric vehicles. Along with the broader 2022 Ford lineup, Ford began production of the Lightning. F-150 Lightning is the fastest-accelerating F-150 yet and the only full-size electric pickup available now with a starting price less than $40,000.

F-150 Lighting Production Begins
The day marked the official start to the production of the Ford F-150 Lightning. It will begin at the high-tech Rouge Electric Vehicle Center within Ford’s historic Rouge Complex in Dearborn, Michigan. The only electric vehicle that is Built Ford Tough, the F-150 is the smartest, most innovative F-150 that Ford has ever built, with the freedom of a 10-kilowatt smart power plant on wheels, software updates that will make it even better over time, and Built Ford Tough capability.
Ford has unprecedented demand for F-150 Lightning with 200,000 reservations and is expanding the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center to ramp up production to a planned annual run rate of 150,000 in 2023. The company has invested a total of $950 million and created 750 jobs at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.
Ford Celebrates Leading the Electric Future
Bill Ford, the Ford Executive Chair, said, “Today we celebrate the Model T moment for the 21st Century at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center. The Rouge is where Ford perfected the moving assembly line, making it a fitting backdrop as we make history again. The stunning anticipation for F-150 Lightning is a credit to the work of our Ford engineers and designers, and the UAW team members who are building these trucks with pride.”
The Lightning Changes the Electric Game
The Ford F-series is America’s best-selling truck for 44 years for a reason. And now, it’s charging into the future with the all-new, all-electric 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. It’s the first ever F-Series that’s gas-free and offers more purposeful technology, an elevated driving experience and trusted Built Ford Tough capability. Offering an ingenious array of connected, intelligent features with over-the-air Software Updates to help ensure your truck can get even better over time.
