The Ford brand reported 153,582 vehicle sales in the United States in May (up 4.1% year-on-year), including very good results for its electrified lineup.
The all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E rated 1,945 units (1.3% of Ford’s total profit), which is almost the same as in April. The cumulative number for the year is 10,510.
It is assumed that the demand for the Mach-E remains higher than the supply, since the manufacturer reports only 10 days on the lots (against 4 days in April and 7 days in March). One in four Mach-E was sold in California.
“With only 10 days to run, the Mustang Mach-E essentially sells out as soon as it hits dealer showrooms. Sales of Mach-E totaled 1,945, with 10,510 Mustang Mach-E sold this year. California is the largest market for this all-new high-performance electric SUV, with one in four Mach-Es sold in the state. “
Total sales of Ford’s electrified vehicles in the United States – xEV (BEV, PHEV, HEV) – stood at 10,364 (up 184% year-over-year). This category includes hybrids, such as the F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid, as well as the Escape and Explorer hybrids.
Ford’s electrified vehicle sales increased 184% in May, hitting a new sales record for electrified vehicles with sales of 10,364 vehicles. The growth came from Mustang Mach-E, which totaled 1,945 vehicle sales. While the F-150 PowerBoost totaled 2,852 for the month, Escape electrified vehicle sales totaled 3,617, up 125% from last year. Sales of the Explorer Hybrid also saw a sharp increase of 132% compared to a year ago on sales of 1,156 SUVs.
Ford also notes strong initial demand for the upcoming Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup, which has received more than 70,000 reservations.
One of the most interesting things is the volume of production. In May, Ford Mustang Mach-E production hit a new monthly record of 6 845.
This is more than three times the number of units sold in the United States. It is assumed that most of them are exported to Europe. Most recently, the Ford Mustang Mach-E registered 1,384 registrations in Norway, becoming the best-selling car in May.
After five months, the production of the Mach-E stands at 27,816 – more than any other Mustang (26,089).
