Ford’s electrified vehicle sales have mirrored that of the entire automotive industry recently, steadily increasing with each passing month. In fact, the automaker’s electrified vehicle sales – which includes hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and all-electric vehicles – jumped by 195 percent from October to November. Models like the Ford F-150 PowerBoost have steadily gained in popularity with consumers, leading to the hybrid automobile having its best sales year ever in 2021. Meanwhile, Ford also enjoyed robust electrified vehicle sales in the month of December, the automaker revealed in its most recent sales report.
Ford sold a total of 12,284 electrified vehicles last month, which is a new record for the automaker and a whopping 121 percent increase over December of 2020. Additionally, electrified vehicle sales grew over four times the rate of the overall automotive segment for the month, a trend that persisted for the bulk of 2021 as hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles continue to win over consumers.
Currently, Ford has a number of electrified vehicles on sale, including the 2022 Ford Maverick hybrid, Ford Escape hybrid, Escape PHEV, Ford Explorer hybrid, Ford F-150 PowerBoost, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring, and Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring. That lineup is set to expand exponentially in the coming months and years, with the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning and E-Transit due to launch this spring, while all-electric versions of the Explorer and Aviator were recently pushed back to late 2023.
Ford recently revealed that it has doubled its planned production of the F-150 Lightning by mid-2023, will ramp up Mustang Mach-E production to 200,000 units per year by that same timeframe, and is also doubling its planned global EV production to 600,000 vehicles by 2024 as it continues its electrified pivot.
