And then one other tiny little point…

Your $1500 payment on the Lightning is based on a 5-year loan, while the $760 payment on the F150 is based on a 3-year lease. So, you know… 😉
HOLY COW!!!!! That makes it so much worse!!! That would make the Lighting $2500 a month.

But hey, that grille(?)sure looks a lot nicer for '23... 😁
I hadn’t noticed the difference, but the 23 grille does look better in the pictures.

Also, it's a non-refundable tax credit that does not roll over, so unless you have at least 7500 of tax liability, you don't get the full credit. Though I can't imagine anyone dropping $88k on a truck does not make well over that threshold.
Any trucks/suvs priced over $80k don’t qualify under the new rules. There’s also an individual income limit of $400k as well. Half of the rebate is tied to where the materials are sourced and the other half to where the battery is made. Until more of the battery plants come on line in a year or two, only cars from Tesla, some GM’s, VW’s, and maybe some Fords will qualify for the rebate or maybe half of the $7,500 rebate. Because most of the raw now materials come from China most vehicles will lose half of the rebate until that material sourcing changes to countries that we have a free trade agreement with.

From the article:

“Ultimately, a lot will also depend on guidance that will have to be issued by IRS. At first glance, it appears that almost no cars will qualify, but some might end up squeaking in," Sam Abuelsamid, principal research analyst at Guidehouse Insights, told Ars. Without knowing more, it's impossible to be definitive about which EVs will qualify for at least $3,750, but the list may include Ford EVs that use cells from Georgia, the locally produced Volkswagen ID.4s, GM EVs that use its new Ultium cells, and Teslas that use cells from Nevada.

At this rate in 10 years we'll all have 8+ year long car notes or riding public transportation.

And it has heated seats now. 😃
I have to add them on mine. All trims in any EV should have heated seats and heated steering wheel. The regular heater kills the battery, the 12v accessories use very little power.

The 2023 Lightning will not be offered with an AM radio in any trims. I wonder if the deletion of AM radio's will be across all 2023 Fords? This is the PRO model build.
