U.S. Ford Motor Company Sales Up 65 Percent In April 2021

Ford Motor Company sales increased by 65 percent to 197,813 units during April 2021 in the United States. Sales increased in the two FMC’s brands, Ford and Lincoln.

“Ford’s retail sales not only increased 57 percent over year ago, but also exceeded April 2019 by 24 percent. Strong customer reaction to our newest products, despite tight inventory, confirms our strategy of investing in electrified vehicles, along with trucks and SUVs,” said Vice President, Ford Sales U.S. and Canada, Andrew Frick. “In April, we not only beat pre-coronavirus sales numbers from April 2019, but we saw record electrified vehicle sales for the month, along with record April Ford and Lincoln SUV sales. Trucks had their best retail performance since 2008.”
