I saw on the news the other day that the U.S. Senate Finance Committee advanced legislation would boost the electric vehicle tax credits to as much as $12,500 for EVs that are assembled by union workers in the United States.

It's the $7,500 tax credit plus $2,500 for vehicles assembled in the United States and another $2,500 for cars at facilities whose production workers are members of, or represented by, a labor union.

The catch is that the tax credit will apply to vehicles with a retail price below $80,000.

So that means that depending on which F-150 you order, it should qualify for the full money right? because the Lightning is being built in Michigan and by union workers.

I believe you are correct, but I wouldn't hold my breath, getting anything through the US Senate is like running a marathon on a track full of crazy glue. They seem to be more interested in complaining about everything instead of focusing on moving anything forward. I sure hope they come to their senses and do the right thing for Americans and the American worker.

If approved in its current form, this should apply to all models except the Platinum or the Lariat+Premium with lots of added goodies.

The lariat plus doesn’t have many goodies to add. the only thing You can’t have , other the dealer added nugs is the max tow package. I have been trying to see if that is a software unlock so they put the hdwe in and you just pay to unlock it.

Nope. There is additional hardware that can’t be added after the fact. Not present otherwise.
