Hi everyone,
Looking at getting the base Pro model. Does anyone seen any issues with getting one for personal use?

Any dealer discrimination since I don't have a company?

Just want a "Truck"
For what used trucks are going for, I figure I can pick up a new Pro model if the rebate is still available.

I ordered on 5/19/21

There are many folks on this forum and elsewhere who are looking to get the Pro model. There's nothing wrong with this as it is a lot of truck for the money and a lot of EV for the money. It's a great way to go electric!

the 'Pro' model is simply the entry level model, no difference in drivetrain, suspension, seating, cargo, or anything, other than upgraded amenities and such. There is no difference in ordering a Pro model versus the XLT or Lariat or Platiunum, they all 'drive' the same. If you like vinyl seating, and the standard battery, then you'll be all set. I plan on getting the base 'Pro' model, and that's just FINE with me - I've owned TWO Nissan Leafs, 2014 and 2015 models, and am quite familiar and COMFORTABLE with electric power. I don't see this as 'saving the earth', but as the simplest method of powered vehicles you could possibly own. You plug it in for power. Simple. No more gas stations. No more oil changes. Easy.

also, there is no distinction between someone ordering a 'Pro' model and a business, or 'fleet', ordering a 'Pro' model - Ford doesn't care 'who' buys it, as long as it gets sold. The 'fleet' customers WILL be able to order the 'Pro' model with the larger battery pack, though with it's stock range on the regular battery, it doesn't seem that fleets would even need the extra expense and larger battery - but maybe Ford thinks they will. I imagine that most businesses who might go this route, such as service businesses, are not driving more than 100 miles one way to any destination. Unless they are pulling a load, a trailer, etc., I doubt they'll ever require the extra capacity.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.
