Since going on sale late last year, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has clearly resonated with shoppers and critics alike. Aside from racking up a number of awards including Car & Drivers 2021 EV of the Year, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has outsold and outproduced the ICE-powered Ford Mustang, held the title of the best-selling vehicle in Norway, and attracted most of its buyers from other brands. Thus, it should come as no surprise that the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is also turning incredibly quickly on U.S. dealer lots.
Ford recently revealed that the Mach-E is turning in an average of just 12 days on dealer lots, which is impressive. Additionally, Mach-E sales were up 15.8 percent in July over June, and the EV crossover has sold well enough through the first half of the year to take second place in the rapidly expanding battery-electric sport-utility segment.
Ford notes that its newest products, including the Ford F-150 PowerBoost, Mustang Mach-E, Ford Bronco, and Ford Bronco Sport are conquesting at a rate that is almost 14 points higher than the automaker’s overall lineup. As Ford Authority reported earlier today, Ford has a whopping 70,000 units currently in its order bank, which is ten times higher than last year, and that number doesn’t include the Ford Maverick or Ford Bronco.
Overall, Ford sold a total of 9,103 electrified vehicles in July – a 57.5 percent increase year over year – of which the Mach-E represented 2,854 units. What makes these numbers more impressive is the fact that Mach-E production at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant was recently impacted by the semiconductor chip shortage, causing delivery delays of at least six weeks for orders produced or scheduled between July 5th, 2021, and October 1st, 2021.
