I'm a home builder from the Okanagan Valley region of British Columbia, Canada. I was very excited to be invited to order my 312A XLT standard range on Feb 1st. Once it arrives, I'll move my 2014 Silverado into the business fleet and bump out the oldest truck, a mid 90s Ram hemi. I'm a first time EV buyer.

Questions:
  1. the standard and optional equipment lists I was given at the dealership aren't conclusive on the matter of charger supplied. Is the Connected Charge Station (48 amp) provided standard with my model? I'd like to get my electrician working on roughing in a charger at my home.
  2. my dealership sales person says there will be no further word now until my order is plucked by the factory, and that this could come anytime in the next 2-10 months. I'm unfamiliar with the process here - does my order (with deposit) guarantee I'll get a 2022 model Lightning, or might I be bumped over into MY2023?
Thanks in advance to all who respond. Looking forward to exchanging views and ideas as the excitement builds toward those first vehicles being delivered.

1. You will be getting the Ford Mobile Charge Cord. It is a 32A charger with a 110/Level 1 (slow) pigtail and a 220/Level 2 (overnight) pigtail. You could start with this 32A charger by having the electrician install a NEMA 14-50 outlet. The other option is to purchase a faster charger and have it wired in.

2. With a Wave 3 order, you should be fine for getting a 2022. What trim did you buy?

Thanks, I ordered XLT. Leather is a bit much for a work truck. Really all I wanted was the heated seats and wheel, but the Pro was already sold out, so a moot point. My typical daily driving doesn't amount to much over 100 km/60 mi, so the 32A charger should fit the bill. Not having to shoehorn a 60A circuit into my fairly cramped home service is attractive - that would probably require a load switching device.

Are the mobile charge units available as a standalone purchase? Might be good to have one in the truck all the time so I can't forget to take it with me on the occasional out of town trip. 55+ brain, the issues are real.

The Ford Mobile Charge Cord is available for purchase but there are also other mobile chargers that are cheaper and may provide better options depending on your needs.
