According to Farley, Ford's targeted production run rate of the Ford F-150 Lightning is 150k units annually by this fall.

Is the plant to be shut down for a few weeks to further improve production? I thought I read somewhere that in June and July there would be a brief retooling period.

Even if the facility is nearly ready, training and staffing more line workers would be the other hump to overcome.

This was the original plan, how it was affected while the line was down during the battery investigation, I'm not sure, it would be nice if they were able to accelerate the transition adjustments for the added space already or during that period, maybe an insider could fill us in on that detail.

Will trucks assembled but waiting for additional parts be completed during that time?
Yes. They usually don't bring them back to the plant to do that work.

NOOO.... I have a June 12 build week. Guess it will not be finished till August then :cry:
Would you mind sharing your VIN via PM, I would like to track it and get the build week stat's?

BTW, production week 6/12 concludes 6/18, they may have a low volume week and tapper work near Friday the 16th to get everything down the line and out of the way for any line final adjustments coming the following weeks.
