2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E On Track To Out Sell The Chevrolet Bolt

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. Ford recently revealed that the Mach-E program is already profitable, and that the EV crossover is on track to record 50,000 deliveries by the end of the year. But while the Ford Mustang Mach-E continues to pick up steam, one of its rivals – the Chevrolet Bolt – is quickly losing ground.

Through the end of October, Ford has sold 21,703 units of the Mach-E, compared to 24,810 Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUVs. However, there’s a big catch – GM has suspended Bolt production and sales through the end of the year as it works to produce replacement parts for existing owners affected by the a battery fire recall that has plagued that model for some time now. That recall spans 140,000 vehicles across the 2017-2022 model years and is expected to cost GM upwards of $2 billion.

Taking this into consideration, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is on pace to not only catch up with the Bolt in terms of sales by the end of the year, but surpass it by around 3,000 units, as GM Authority recently pointed out. As Ford Authority reported earlier today, Mach-E sales totaled 3,709 units in November, an 8.4 percent increase over October.

This revelation would be another feather in the Mach-E’s cap in its first full year on sale, which has been full of them. As Ford Authority previously reported, the EV crossover has appeared on Kelley Blue Book’s top ten most considered electrified models list for two consecutive quarters, and recently joined Consumer Reportslist of recommended vehicles, too. On top of that, FoMoCo recently revealed that over 90 percent of Mach-E buyers said they would recommend the EV to other customers.

    Hmmm.. No brainer. Only Berkley, CA could love such an ugly car like every bolt ever made. The Mach-E has better range, all wheel drive, hauls balls, and doesn’t look like a toad. Chevy’s losing future market share fast.
