Reservations vs Production: Where do you stand?

I pulled together numbers reservations by date vs. production estimates but realized they were a bit buried in a thread. Note that this does not speak to reservations numbers that are a much more complicated issue. I recommend you ignore the number and just think about the date of your reservation.

Comparing reservations with planned production numbers:
  • 20,000 in 12 hours (May 20)
  • 44,500 in 48 hours (May 21)
  • 70,000 in about 8 days (May 27)
  • 100,000 in about three weeks (June 9)
  • 150,000 in about 4 months (September 16)
  • 160,000 reservations in 5-1/2 months (November)
These numbers don't include fleet reservations (https://electrek.co/2021/11/19/ford...shh2Zl63SfECsu-GqYEY5YpWCAeBmCcyW7DSCycajv7hc)

Production estimates:
  • 2022 15,000-30,000 (unofficial with best guess close to 20,000)
  • 2023 55,000 (August estimate)
  • 2024 80,000 (August estimate) 160,000 possible? ( Ford's November statements)
August estimates from Ford Said To Double F-150 Lightning Production Target Already
The November story has Ford doubling production again within 24 months, which I read to be 2024 production (Ford plans to double EV production in two years).

Then there is the question of conversion. Ford is expecting an 80% conversion of reservations to orders.

All in all, that means we are probably looking at a reservation to production comparison of:

My salesman said I and 3 others was at #2 some at #4 and #5 and other at still at #19 anyone know what is means?
I didn't understand what he was getting at. I reserved Dec 12, 2021 so I asked how I could be at #2 when I knew others must have reserved way before me. He then said I wasn't #2 to order but I was #2 for something. Then stated I maybe be able to order next spring. I still think I'm out 1 1/2 to 2 years.
Yes I think thats what he said. So what does that mean as far as time frame to order? LOL
