Ford is looking for any space it can to store the F-150 Lightning after production.

Following the start of production on April 26, Lightnings re starting to pile up the company test track in Dearborn, Michigan

Numerous Lightnings have been seen coming from the direction of Ford’s Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, and entering a side entrance at Ford’s Dearborn test track. The numbers have been growing steadily during the first week of may. This may be due to supply chain issues and semiconductor shortages.

A similar scene happened last year, when a mass of F-150s were stored the track once Ford began production of the refreshed 2021 F-150. Currently, numerous lots in Dearborn are overflowing with Ford Broncos, as they await parts to finalize their build. The supply chain issues continue to plague Ford’s assembly operations, and are affecting some of their most high-profile, and sought-after products. Ford’s electrified F-150 is just the latest victim.

This adds a lot to the cost to build a truck. Extra labor in moving it around. Lots of extra labor trying to do assembly outside the assembly line. Cost of the whole truck sitting there not being paid by customer. Think about it every 15 trucks sitting there is one million dollars tied up. What's the cost of capital on 1 million x all those trucks
Bad for everyone.
