Ford Cites Economies of Scale for Lower F-150 Lightning Prices


Ford says that improved economies of scale, including increased plant capacity, production scaling, and raw materials capacities are all reasons that the F-150 Lightning will see price reductions. Starting in the 2024 model year. Production at Ford’s Rogue Electric Vehicle Plant in Michigan is set to resume this fall as upgrades to triple capacity complete. Ford is targeting 150,000 units of the Lightning annually.

Improving battery raw materials costs combine with those upgrades in scale to adjust prices by nearly $10,000 per unit.

“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.” –Marin Gjaja, chief customer officer, Ford Model e
