The company started production of the machines last month, and now the machines have begun to arrive to customers. The very first such lucky person is captured in the photo above.

A resident of Michigan booked a Platinum Trim Lightning package on May 20 last year, and he received the car on May 26 of this year, that is, almost exactly a year later. Interestingly, this person owns a Tesla Model 3, has already posted a Cybertruck deposit, and was considering buying a Rivian R1T.

Since the Ford F-Series is the best-selling car in the US, it’s no surprise that the company has amassed a huge amount of pre-orders for the electric version, and right now Ford can’t say exactly when it will be able to fulfill all these orders. This year, the company is going to produce only 40,000 cars, despite the fact that orders have been collected at least 200,000.

Including subsidies, the car in the US starts at $40,000.
