So the Rogue facility is a new building. It must have been built with production in mind, although Ford is building a larger facility to move production to in 2 years. What do we think that means about the line for the first two years of the Lightning?

Did they build a full body and paint shop in the new facility? Or would they use the truck assembly sitting next door to build the body and paint, then take them next door to finish production where the frame, battery and motors maybe are assembled?

A brand-new assembly line was set up for the Mustang Mach E and both paint and fit and finish have been excellent. Not sure if the bodies are all built and painted together but it would make sense for them to do so. I'll see what I can find out.
