Regarded as a formidable player in the electric pick-up truck space and one that could be strong rival to the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck, Ford's F-150 Lightning reservations are a good indication of the popularity of such vehicles. A recent report also stated that Ford doubled its production target for the F-150 Lightning due to the strong demand. The automaker has planned to spend an extra $850 million to meet the target for the EV. The F-150 Lightning truck will be launched next year.

The reservation figures for F-150 Lightning, however, are still far behind those of Cybertruck which had already touch a million by the time the Ford EV had been unveiled.
