The production of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning kicks off on April 26. The truck has been in pre-production at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan, for a couple of months, but this will really pace things up.

Ford states that employees and even some Lightning customers will be at the plant that day when the first electric F-150 rolls off the assembly line.

Regardless, Ford is positioning this as “the first-ever full-size all-electric pickup to go on sale.”

The F-150 is highly popular in the industry and it is much anticipated. It’s been America’s best-selling pickup for 45 years in a row, and a study from 2020 claims the F-150 to bring in more revenue than any other American consumer product besides iPhone. Even if you’re not into trucks, the Blue Oval pickup has a substantial impact not only on our country’s roads but also its economy.
