Can someone help me verify or squash a rumor....
My friend in Indiana (I live in Iowa) talked to their dealer who mentioned that the majority of initial reservations have been allocated to people in states that have ZEV policies. If I am understanding this correctly, a ZEV states requires a certain % of a model be low or zero emissions vehicles. Thus, are people living ZEV states more likely to get a 2022 MY Lightning versus the others?

Any clarity or full disposition of the above is greatly appreciated. And again, I have NO FIRM EVIDENCE of the above.

That’s the rumor. It makes sense but it’s hard to know for sure. It’s possible the allocations are based on total reservations and it just so happens that the ZEV states are the most populous so they have the most reservations.

Others have reported they were told the same thing by dealers. It has never been confirmed by Ford and the Ford folks at the DC Auto Show said that they were not aware of any influence ZEV states had on allocations (Questions for Product Specialists at the DC Auto Show?).

I live in a ZEV state and ordered within 48 hours. I have not received an invitation to order. If they are prioritizing ZEV, then people in those states still need a very early reservation.

Farley tweeted that most orders were from California , New York, and texas. Looks more like the most populous states (I don’t see Texas as a ZEV state). The shitty thing about his tweet was he made it seem that ford had no part in directing who got to order, like he was just Reading the news and those three happened to be the top three states, when in fact, they are tightly controlling who gets to order. I can’t imagine too many invitations not getting converting at this point.
