The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has been gaining in popularity with new vehicle shoppers since its launch late last year, and in spite of the semiconductor chip shortage, it quickly outproduced and outsold the ICE-powered Ford Mustang after just a few months of being on sale. Now, on the eve of earning Car and Driver‘s EV of the Year award and turning a profit early in its lifecycle, Ford has revealed that the EV crossover is on track to record some impressive sales figures by the end of the year.
Mach-E Brand manager Lisa Teed told Automotive News journalist Michael Martinez that the automaker is on track to deliver 50,000 units to the U.S. and Europe by the conclusion of 2021, which is an impressive figure. Regardless, it also seems very achievable given the fact that Ford has sold a grand total of 18,855 Mach-Es in the U.S. alone through the end of September.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E sales in the U.S. grew by 9.2 percent last month, totaling 1,578 vehicles, serving as a rare bright spot in Ford’s lineup while the automaker’s overall sales dropped 17.7 percent. Additionally, the Mach-E has proven to be quite popular in Europe, where it has held the distinction of being Norway’s best-selling vehicle for multiple months this year.

The Mach-E’s sales growth is good news for Ford as it continues to invest heavily in electric vehicles and battery production facilities. The crossover will soon be joined by the E-Transit and 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, as well as a host of future models including an electric version of the Ford Explorer and possibly even the Ford Bronco, while Ford is also working on creating two new EV platforms that can be used for a number of different types of vehicles.
