Ford brought some great news for potential buyers of its F-150 Lightning: a whopping £12,100 incentive. That’s right, the electric behemoth of a truck just got a lot more affordable. If you’re in the camp of “I’ve been considering this, but…” – now might be the time to strike.
On the 2023 F-150 Lightning Platinum trim, there’s a £6,100 retail purchase incentive. And if you’re thinking of leasing instead of buying, there’s an equal amount available in Red Carpet Lease customer cash. But if Platinum is a bit too rich for your wallet, don’t worry. The Lariat offers a £6,100 incentive for purchases, and £4,000 for those of you keen on leasing. The XLT got a relatively tame £1,200 off for both leasing and buying. Sadly the Pro model gets not discounts at this point.
The F-150 Lightning still qualifies for the full £6,100 tax credit. Even the high-end Platinum trim, priced a tad above £65,000, can see combined savings up to £12,100 and you can enjoy these perks up until January 2.
Ford’s been seeing a dip in its electric pickup sales. The company managed to sell 3,503 units between July and September, which is a 45% nosedive from last year. Ford says it is not for lack of demand though and is looking to get production up and running, making up for the six-week halt, with a goal of expanding their Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.
For those of you who like a little extra spice, Ford’s not stopping at incentives. The company introduced a new “Flash” trim for 2024. It boasts 320 miles of range, a state-of-the-art tech interior, and a heat pump – all starting at a fiver under £57,000. Think of it as a beautiful mashup of features from the XLT and Lariat trims, offering the best of both worlds.
