The conspiracy theory part of me would point out that this begins the precedent of selling trucks only to people who "need" them, which has been a behind the scenes goal for a lot of environmental types for some time.
I doubt they make any money specially an EV build at a union plan.

I wonder if something like this will happen to Ford:

The F-150 lighting with current incentives is cheaper than their gas counterpart the XL starting at $36,650 2WD. If Biden get his new EV incentive bill going it will 10k + 2.5k because of union run plan so the Pro short range would start at 27.5K . I hope Ford secured lost of batteries.
