The first 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning was officially delivered to a customer in Michigan at the end of May. Still, other reservation holders were not that lucky. Although rolled off the production line, many Lightning electric trucks were quarantined outside the manufacturing plant for months.
We’ve written about dozens of them parked on the side of Ford’s test track at Dearborn, all because of the missing components. The situation doesn’t seem to ease, as F-150 Lightning pickups are still held in parking lots.
Pictures obtained by Ford Authority show many electric trucks parked in a Michigan-area parking lot. They are probably waiting for components to get back in stock and installed. The intriguing part is that many trucks in the pictures have their frunks open.
Ford Authority sources are unsure if these pickups are customer models, test fleets, or something else entirely. We can only speculate that they are just about to be reunited with the missing components, and the frunks were opened to perform the required operations. According to Ford Authority, the F-150 Lightning is currently missing chips for the backup camera and the windshield wipers.
