hi there,

living in germany, but driving US Ford since 21 years now. Actually a Mustang Bullitt 2020 from new, a ˋ67 GT-A 390 Mustang and a ˋ68 Lincoln Continentel coupe.
In germany the goverment do a lot of things to speed up solar energie at every home place, so it is the logical step for me, to try an order of a Lightning truck.
There is no information of Ford germany to offer an F Truck officially in germany. Hopefully I can organize one by myself.

One of the first questions will be, is it possible to place an order, or a reservation, online? Or is it a must to talk to a dealer?
I talk to a Dutch import/export dealer what‘s possible - he told me, I can spend $40k over sticker, plus tax, plus s/h, plus plus plus… total of something $165k🙈

So, I will to the long route, reading, asking around what to do and… wait like a lot of other members

thanks for helping hands in advance

Both reservations and orders have been online but a dealer must be identified. Unfortunately, Ford stopped taking reservations when they reached 200,000. There is no word on when reservations might open again. Orders are only being taken from reservation holders and those conversions require an invitation from Ford.

Your current option would be to:
1. find a dealer demo (mannequin) and purchase it from the dealer
2. find a truck that a buyer ordered but did not take delivery and purchase it from the dealer
3. find a person who bought a truck and is flipping (reselling) it and purchase it from them.

Good luck.
