Ford has reportedly received 1.30 lakh reservations for its F-150 Lightning electric pickup. Ford had unveiled the electric vehicle earlier this year and the company started the reservation with a refundable amount of $100.

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.
