  1. Will we ever be able to order the $39k Lightning?

    No worries. Ford is a big enough company, has been in business long enough, and has enough riding on the Lightning that they will proceed exactly as planned and announced. We’ll place our orders soon, and some of us will take delivery next spring. Patience!
  2. Despite Reports, Ford Says Its F-150 Lightning Is Not Delayed

    No worries. Ford is a big enough company, has been in business long enough, and has enough riding on the Lightning that they will proceed exactly as planned and announced. We’ll place our orders soon, and some of us will take delivery next spring. Patience!
  3. RV Trailer Towing With F-150 Lightning - Considerations & Discussions

    I have to second your last point. I’m certainly not an EE, but it’s hard for me to understand why these chargers would have lots of issues. Everything electrical at my house? Always works. Home EVSE? Always works. Credit card reader at gas pump? Always works. Maybe just teething issues, bound to...
  4. F150 Lightning and new EV credits bill

    What if I withdraw some money from the 401k? I know I’m missing out on future gains that way, but wouldn’t that increase my tax liability?
  5. 3 Weeks Away From 2022 F-150 Lightning Order Banks Opening

    They could just price the Platinum at 80K now. Then, if BBB comes in with a (somewhat) lower cutoff price, they could pleasantly surprise folks that ordered Platinum by dropping the price accordingly. Just wildly speculating of course.
  6. 3 Weeks Away From 2022 F-150 Lightning Order Banks Opening

    It’s understandable that they’re doing it, trying to maximize $, but I agree that it looks a little shady. At least at some point they’ll have to release the configurator so they can start planning their production runs. They should already know that waiting on congress to do its job is….going...
  7. Dealer said my reservation is #14 out of 667, but I'm a little doubtful . . .

    That would make the most sense if they prioritize customer satisfaction over quick $.
  8. Nissan wants in on electric pickup space - reveals Surf-Out Concept

    Yeah I was hoping for a EV surprise during the Ranger reveal last week, but….not quite yet. We’ll get there soon.
  9. Nissan wants in on electric pickup space - reveals Surf-Out Concept

    50% “electrified” in ten years? They’re writing their own obituary here. Time for a major change in upper management.
  10. 80A Charge Station Pro

    Somebody at Ford knows. They aren’t sharing right now, wish they would. I guess you could call them, be sure to share what you find out!
  11. Build back American bill passes [ CLOSED DUE TO DELETED POLITICS POSTS]

    The only people that will see their taxes go up is those making over 400K/800K filing married. Not “poor “ in my book.
  12. F-150 Lightning Order Bank goes live in January - according to our Ford rep's email

    Certainly on the higher trims. Not so much on the Pro. As they add more options they also increase production line complexity, so there’s a point of diminishing returns for them in there somewhere.
  13. F-150 Lightning Order Bank goes live in January - according to our Ford rep's email

    Ford won’t change the already announced pricing. Reputation and all that. They’ll just make it up on the other trims and upgrade options where they left themselves plenty of wiggle room by not announcing anything yet.
  14. F-150 Lightning EV Tax Credits & Rebates - Discussions & Predictions

    Appreciate your concern re Dem election prospects, but let’s not forget that everything that’s in BBB is the exact stuff that Biden/Dems ran on last year. And won by a landslide, so I’m not too sure about this political suicide thing. We’ll see soon enough.
  15. F-150 Lightning EV Tax Credits & Rebates - Discussions & Predictions

    Exactly. Always gotta leave some room for negotiating so you can still get what you really want in the end. And, IMHO, the EV credit is one of the less important pieces of BBB for our society overall. A “nice to have “.
  16. Seemingly inexpensive NEMA 14/50 option may have just gotten pretty expensive afterall

    My JuiceBox is plugged into a 14-50 receptacle that’s hooked up to only the two hot wires and the ground wire. No neutral. Works just fine. Probably not to code though.
  17. F-150 Lightning Order Bank goes live in January - according to our Ford rep's email

    Well, last day of spring is June 21st. So, technically, they might deliver, like, a dozen or two in spring. Yay Ford….
