I don't recall anyone saying early 2022. What I heard was Spring 2022 to begin deliveries. Spring ends around June 21. So expect a trickle of deliveries in June. If Ford really plans to sell 80,000 the first year, they aren't all going to be delivered at once. Expect 15,000 — 20,000 per month starting in July. Having said that, no one can predict what fresh hell will erupt between now and then and cause delays,#9 makes me think that tone is shifting from early 2022 to mid 2022. For most of us, it will likely be fall/early 2023.
Time to adjust the plans.
Yes- the platinum trim level truck shown at the event has the larger battery by default. I apologize as I don’t know the name of it.To clarify, the 300 mile range with 1000 payload is with Standard battery? (compared to the official 230 mile number on their website)
Same comments about range apply to the 260 miles at 100% here and the 472 miles at 100% here.So that's about 260 miles total range. Being a platinum we will assume the ER battery
I asked the definition of payload and was told it included the bed, frunk and passenger space.Same comments about range apply to the 260 miles at 100% here and the 472 miles at 100% here.
The 300 mile range which Ford says was done with 1,000# load in the bed is accurate with maybe 10-20 miles better in EPA tests but not put on sticker as many mfgs do (Porsche on Taycan and Ford on MachE). The 15% added load of the 1,000 lb in the cargo bed is significant.
The survey likely went to previous F150 owners. I think it would be safe that they’re not downgrading their trim, so most responded with higher trim answers. The “new to Ford/pickup/F150/BEV” people (like me) are excited to get into the game with a lower buy in that checks the boxes.I don’t believe the 10% Pro number for a minute. No way, no how. EVERY headline was “40k Lightning”. A HUGE percentage of the reservations had to be people wanting a 40k Lightning.
You have to consider a good portion of people paying money to reserve a car that's not even going to be available for a year aren't your typical bargain hunters. It stands to reason that a higher percentage of early reservation holders would be inclined to spend on all the goodies than in the general population of owners once these reach general availability.I don’t believe the 10% Pro number for a minute.
