The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has thus far been a hit with critics and consumers alike, ranking as one of the top considered electrified vehicles as over 90 percent of owners previously said they would recommend the EV crossover to others. Back in October, Ford said that it was on track to sell 50,000 Mach-Es globally by the end of the year, and admitted it wouldn’t be able to fulfill all of the demand for the EV crossover, as a number of unscheduled 2021 orders were pushed back to 2022. Now, Ford has revealed that it sold a grand total of 27,140 Mach-Es in the U.S. last year, after moving 2,349 units in the month of December, closing out the model’s first full year on sale.

“On the strong success of Mustang Mach-E, Ford jumped into second place in U.S. electric vehicle sales behind just Tesla,” said Vice President, Ford Sales U.S. and Canada, Andrew Frick. “Last year was a foundational year for Ford in the electrified vehicle segment and this year we continue to expand, adding the F-150 Lightning and E-Transit to our electric vehicle lineup.”
To meet the unexpectedly high demand for the Ford Mustang Mach-E, FoMoCo recently announced that it will dedicate 100 percent of its production capacity at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico to the EV crossover, ramping production up to 200,000 units per year by 2023. As Ford Authority recently reported, the forthcoming all-electric versions of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator were originally supposed to be built alongside the Mach-E with a launch planned for 2023, but those production plans have changed and the crossovers have been pushed back to late 2024.
Ford CEO Jim Farley recently revealed that the automaker has doubled its planned annual EV production to 600,000 vehicles by 2024, and expects EVs to account for 40 percent of its global sales by 2030. Additionally, the automaker announced earlier this week that it will also double its planned Ford F-150 Lightning production to 150,000 units by mid-2023.
