Increased Plant Capacities & Efficiencies Lead to Lower Ford F-150 Lightning Prices

Ford F 150 Lightning Xlt At Beach
Ford is leveraging expanded plant capacity, continuous production and cost optimization efforts, and favorable battery raw material cost improvements to drive down the MSRP of the F-150 Lightning® for its entire customer base.
The Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Michigan is temporarily shuttered to complete essential plant enhancements, aiming to triple the annual production rate to a targeted 150,000 F-150 Lightning trucks, set to begin this fall. These plant upgrades, coupled with ongoing enhancements in battery raw material costs and sustained progress in production scaling and cost management, are facilitating price reductions across the F-150 Lightning range. As a result, customers can anticipate enhanced availability of their customized trucks as early as October, with an MSRP closer to the initial Lightning pricing.

Shortly after launching the F-150 Lightning, rapidly rising material costs, supply constraints and other factors drove up the cost of the EV truck for Ford and our customers, we’ve continued to work in the background to improve accessibility and affordability to help to lower prices for our customers and shorten the wait times for their new F-150 Lightning.
