After issuing a stop-ship on the 2024 F-150 Lightning in early February, the electric pickup is now shipping from its Rouge Electric Vehicle facility.

Ford spokesperson Emma Berg told Electrek the stop-ship started on Feb 9, and the company planned to ramp up shipments once quality checks were complete. The spokesperson added that it is part of the manufacturing process to ensure quality.

Last week, a memo to dealers (via CarsDirect) found Ford was introducing lower 2024 Lightning prices.

The electric pickup received price cuts of up to $5,500 on certain trims. Notably, the new Flash trim is priced at $67,995, down from $73,495.

Ford’s F-150 Lightning Flash hits the sweet spot with a range of up to 320 miles, a tech-loaded interior with a 15.5″ touchscreen, and a heat pump. Ford’s Tow Tech Package and Power Tailgate are also included.
