F150 Lightning night

Ford Motor Company has notified customers hoping to place an order for the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck that they will have to wait a little longer.

The automaker was hoping to open the order book next week, but in an email to customers today, that date has been pushed back to December 2021.

Several customers shared an almost identical email on Facebook which were later posted to the LightningOwners forum. The email says that despite the delay in being able to place an order, the F-150 Lightning is still on track for a mid-2022 release.

The F150 Lightning was first announced earlier this year. The electric truck has proven popular, amassing more than 150,000 reservations as of the most recent update last month.

Also last month the automaker announced that Lightning pre-production had begun at their new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan.
