Ford Sold More EVs in the US than Ever Last Month

Ford placed second in the US for its electric vehicle sales in May.

  • 6,254 EVs sold in the US in May place the automaker has the second biggest seller of EVs in the country

  • Electric vehicles have accounted for 4,3% of all Ford vehicles sold in that period

  • This number includes the first 201 units of the F-150 Lightning to be delivered

Ford has big ambitions for its lineup of electric vehicles and its efforts to promote it are paying off: the company placed second in terms of EV sales in the US last month.

The Dearborn-based automaker saw sales of its electric vehicles surge by 222% last month compared to May of 2021.

This translates to a total of 6,254 EVs sold in a month, which is a record for the company and accounts for about 4.3% of the total number of Ford vehicles sold in the United States during that same month.

This is fairly impressive considering the automaker currently only offers 3 electric models, compared to more than 16 that are powered by gasoline or diesel.

Furthermore, the company’s total sales have actually regressed by 4.5% in the first five months of the year when compared with the same period in 2021.

Despite this, all three of the electric Fords have experienced their best month yet, with the Mustang Mach-E shifting 5,179 units, which is a 166% increase and the E-Transit delivering 874 units.

The F-150 Lightning couldn’t help but set a new record since May was its first month of sales, but it also had a good showing with the first 201 units having been delivered in the last two weeks.

Ford recently claimed that it aims to become the number one manufacturer of EVs in a few years, ahead of Tesla. The company still has a long way to go to achieve this goal, but it is on the right track since its EV sales grew four times quicker than the rest of the US EV market last month.
