Only the basic version of the pickup has risen in price so much

A price comparison for the Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup shocked Carscoops journalists: it turned out that in just 12 months, the cost of a car in the United States soared from $39,974 to $59,974.

However, journalists note that only the basic version of the pickup truck has risen in price by 50%, but the more expensive options have added much less: the Lariat version has risen in price by $1,500, the Platinum version by $1,200, and the price of the XLT variant has not changed at all since December last year.

Ford attributed the price increase to rising material costs, market factors and various problems in the supply chain of components. However, the demand is great: it is reported that the entire volume of the F-150 Lightning, scheduled for production this year, has already been sold out. And earlier, Ford said that the demand for a pickup was much higher than expected.

If cars in the US are generally becoming more expensive, then in China, on the contrary, they are getting cheaper. And there are reasons for that too .
