Ford sold 11,000 electrified vehicles in November, more than three times as much as the previous year, raising its market share in the electrified vehicle segment to 10% from 5% the previous year.
Increased sales were driven by its Mustang Mach-E model which has become the US’ second most popular electric SUV after Tesla’s Model Y and its F-150 hybrid pick-up truck.
In the year-to-date Ford sold 63,000 cars, 749,000 SUVs and 919,000 trucks. The F-series truck was the best selling truck in the US for the 45th year in a row and Ford’s SUVs set a record for November sales.
EV sales accounted for 3.6% of the US market in 2Q21 according to a study from management consultancy McKinsey, with a total of 160,000 cars sold versus 54,000 in 2Q20.
The White House has set a goal that 50% of all new US vehicle sales in 2030 be EVs.
