It's interesting that my 1/7 Lightning order shows Job # 2. Is Job 1 a test run that's on-going now or is this just a typo/place holder on my order form? Sharing for awareness.

It's Job2 for the F150 as a whole.
Ah so like because the F-150 line as a whole is already producing 2022's and the lightning is a major change to that year line it'll be marked Job #2?

Correct. The Lightning may be treated like a unique product, but underneath it is still classified as a P702 like every other F150.

I did a manual / in-person / at-dealership order. This is what they gave me as proof the order was placed. Assuming it came out of their web based dealer ordering (WBDO) system which I think is what Pioneer74 just said. I walk through what I did to do that here:

It's more of an order preview to review and make sure everything is correct. The order is in their system exactly like on the paper but has to be accepted before it is officially submitted.

Newsweek is reporting that: "Currently production capacity stands at 75,00 F 150 Lightning models per year at Ford's Rouge Electric Vehicle Center....A Ford representative confirmed to Newsweek that the company will be slowly ramping up production to the 75,000 mark. ...For the 2023 model year, Ford is targeting approximately 80,000 units per year capacity." https://www.newsweek.com/heres-when-youll-get-your-2022-ford-f-150-lightning-1665122

This is the first number for 2022 that I have seen in print since the 15,000 reported by Reuters some months ago. Does anybody have another source. I'm sure many of us would like to believe there will be 75k of these built in 2022.

Ford seems vague on the wording whether it's 15,000/75,000 calendar year vs model year.
There could be 15,000 MY22 and 60,000 MY23 built this year. Who knows.
My interpretation of that paragraph is that the Rouge plant could physically support production of 75,000/year not that they will hit that number in 2022. I would be very happy if they did, though.

From what I understand at the moment, they will hit around 80K per year beginning 2023 and increasing from there. Palmer is on record saying that 15-18 is inaccurate, however he won’t state how many due to it being a company secret.

Based on all available data, my guess is 32,768 built as MY22

Anyone else care to make up a number?
