2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Outsold ICE Ford Mustang Last Month

Sponsored

Last month, Ford Authority reported that 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E production had exceeded that of its ICE-powered Ford Mustang counterpart just a few months after the EV crossover entered production at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico. However, that milestone came with a bit of an asterisk, as regular Mustang production at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant has been largely affected by the ongoing semiconductor chip crisis. Regardless, the Mach-E has reached yet another milestone by outselling its ICE brethren for the very first time in the month of June.

Mustang Brand Sales Q2 2021 - USA

MODEL JUN 21 / JUN 20 JUNE 21 JUNE 20 YTD 21 / YTD 20 YTD 21 YTD 20
FORD MUSTANG -50.46% 2,240 4,522 -5.43% 31,950 33,786
FORD MUSTANG MACH-E * 2,465 * * 12,975 *
TOTAL +4.05% 4,705 4,522 +32.97% 44,925 33,786

Ford sold 2,465 Mach-Es last month compared to 2,240 units of the regular Mustang, which is indeed a notable feat despite the automaker’s aforementioned production woes. Regardless, the Mustang has outsold the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E year to date with 31,950 units moved versus 12,975, though it’s worth noting that Mach-E production didn’t fully ramp up until February and March. The Mach-E is also turning in just 11 days, meaning customers are scooping them up as soon as they hit dealer lots.

The Mach-E’s success was also a big factor in Ford’s 117 percent increase in electrified vehicle sales in the month of June, which capped off a first-half record for the automaker. In total, Ford moved 56,570 electrified vehicles, including the Mach-E, 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost, Ford Escape Hybrid, and Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid making up the bulk of that number.

Despite the Mach-E’s early success, Ford has been quite adamant that the regular Mustang isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Neither is the V8-powered Mustang, which figures to stick around for the foreseeable future, as Ford Authority reported back in May. As long as customers continue to buy ICE-powered Mustangs, Ford will continue to build them. But at the same time, there are clearly more than a few folks interested in electric pony cars, too.

We’ll have more on the Mach-E soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Mustang Mach-E news and ongoing Ford news coverage.

    Can we get real here. The “Mustang” Mach E is NO Mustang. The Mach E is a nice looking and fast electric crossover that Ford did a good job with, but to compare sales to the current ICE Mustang is wrong. It was wrong for Ford to call this a Mustang just for marketing purposes.

    Isn’t this the Mexican mustang? I wonder if dealers in CA selling these Mexican Mustangs over MSRP? These things must be so popular they are driving the value of the old fashion mustangs down?

      Sounds racist where it’s built has nothing to do with anything and it’s lowering the value of other Mustangs, the market will be fine

        What??? The woke’s have gotten to you, get a grip on reality, stop smoking your crack. If it is made in MEXICO it is a MEXICAN made product, just like if it were made in Canada it would be a Canadian product, I’m guessing you’re from northern CA? By the way, is Mexican a race???? I was under the impression it was the country of origin. Where something is mfg, has a lot to do with the product- for example, if a product was mfg in Nazi Germany, those using their money to purchase, in a tangible way de facto supported nazi’s. It is clearly understood. I remember when there was a “world wide” boycott on South Africa, no one wanted to support appartheid. Those purchasing chinese goods, with all of china’s concentration camps, are de facto supporters of concentrations camps. Your post is strange, it isn’t clear what you mean, when you state, “and it’s lowering the value of other mustangs, the market will be fine.””””” Do you mean it is lowering the value of other mustangs, or do you mean it is not lowering the value of other mustangs??? Just because of your strange, unclear use of English, does not mean I am a racist, but, rather, looking for clarification, in what appears to be a mish-mash of words.

            Mexican made (made in Mexico) sounds racist, Stop labeling things….sounds as if I was right you’re a woke crack smoking fool. I get a kick out of your “counter posts”, they are never factually based, nor do they ever present verifiable facts, just parrot AOC. You should take more than one class, forget the woke anger management-how about a history course or two, along with a class dedicated to communication, leave the BS for your crowd get togethers in SF. I realize presenting facts “is not a good look” with in your group, or with your “significant other”, but that’s okay. I will continue with verifiable facts, and leave the “what looks good?”, “sounds racist” and Stop Labeling Things, to little fellas like you.

                “Mexican Mustang don’t just sound racist it is racist, ford don’t call it that””””” I didn’t realize Mexican was a race, but I do know how to speak and write English. By your post, you do not, now that isn’t a racist remark, it is a fact. “””Ford don’t call it that”””” That is pathetic, I think you meant to say, “Ford doesn’t call it that””, but I’m not going to second guess an illiterate, who knows what you meant? Just out of curiosity, if a Ford is mfg in Canada, thus making it a Canadian Ford-the country of origin-is saying so out load a racist remark?? You have spent far too much time with your crack pipe. “”Mexican Mustang don’t just sound Racist…”, did you mean to say, “Mexican Mustang does not just sound racist”???? Again, a functional illiterate is easy to spot.

      First of all with all this shortage crap going on of course the Mach E is out selling the ICE Mustang. Ford isn’t supplying ICE Mustang stock like they used to. I work for a Ford dealer i will tell you first hand, we have over FIFTEEN Mustang Mach E in stock, TWO brand new ICE mustangs and ONE Pre owned. Not to mention this is not even in the same category as the ICE Mustang.

    Mexico, Canada, and the United States are all American nations, so the Mach-E is as American as the original 1964 Mustang.

      Yes, good for you, the Americas, geographic features, hahahaha. North, Central and South America are all geographic features on the world map. They are not countries, just as North America has more than one country, so do the other Americas, hope this helps, as you seem confused, and don’t fully understand the difference between land mass, and political boundaries.

    Maybe worth mentioning that real mustang sales were down OVER 50% due to said chip shortage?

    Reply
    1. royl

      I wonder how many chips it takes to make a mach-e? More or less than a real ICE mustang? If more, or equal the number, ford is opting to make one over the other. It would be nice to know.

    Well if the number of available ICE Mustangs for sale or being built due to plant shut down, practically nil, I can see why on the lot models of other vehicles would out sell.

    As for this ugly Mach E thing, all I have to say is people bought the AMC Pacer too. People buy the Porsche Panamera. Both of these vehicles, UGLY, in most people’s eyes. Mach E, Fords ugliest thing ever. Not sure who made the final decision on that design, but it’s obvious, you can’t design a car in brail.

    The Millennial Mustang I’m sure is being bought mostly by hipsters and young families. It’s a suv family car. Only the sport’s car enthusiasts will “ PONY UP “ for the ICE Mustang. Hopefully we will keep the real Mustang alive until 2035.

      And beyond! After 2035, he who controls electricity, will control the world. I’d be remiss if I did not point out, 1975 pres. carter (up until then-the worst pres in American history) singed into law the metric act-we were suppose to be 100% metric by 1985-I see how that worked out. There is no telling how much tax payer money was spent on this. My guess, democrats made a lot of money on signs ads etc, God only knows where all that money went….2035 is a date set by those that have a near zero expectation of living that long, kicking the can…..

    Carter did not take office until January 20, 1977.

      You are so right, Gerald Ford signed it, Carter pushed it with “public service ads”, none the less, under the carter years, all across America, we started seeing mph/kph signs etc., for all of the time carter was in office- this was the same time we lost our embassy (Carter took decisive action-boycotted the olympics), oh, and we decided to “shorten” the agreement with Panama, and gave away the Panama canal (now the chinese operate it), and things like that, but, in the end, the 1985 date came and went, a long time ago. Similar to obama’s line in the sand, it didn’t mean much, I’m guessing the 2035 thing will come and go in much the same fashion.
