Consumer interest in electrified vehicles was steadily growing long before gas prices surged to record highs, a fact that Ford has taken full advantage of in recent months by launching a number of new models. Ford electrified vehicle sales have continued to grow with each passing month as well, and most recently surpassed 20,000 units through February, according to the automaker’s most recent sales report.
Ford electrified vehicle sales are up 55.3 percent through February, a new record for the automaker as they continue to grow at a greater pace than the overall segment across the entire automotive industry. In terms of individual models, the Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid totaled 5,657 sales, the Ford Escape Hybrid and PHEV came in second with 5,457 combined sales, the Ford Maverick posted sales of 5,431 units, and the Ford Mustang Mach-E accounted for 4,371 units.
What’s particularly notable about these numbers is that they don’t include the Ford Explorer Hybrid, Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring, and Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring plug-in hybrid models, meaning that FoMoCo’s electrified vehicle sales year-to-date are even higher, though generally, the automaker doesn’t reveal individual hybrid sales – only total sales figures for each model. Meanwhile, the Mach-E continues to help push electrified vehicle sales to new heights as well after the automaker sold 27k units of its EV crossover in 2021 as the overall market grew by a whopping 89 percent to nearly a half-million vehicles.
These numbers continue Ford’s surge in electrified vehicle sales, which totaled 12k units in the month of December including both Lincoln PHEVs and the Explorer Hybrid. Meanwhile, owners of other brands continue to flock to The Blue Oval’s variety of offerings, as Ford’s electrified conquest rates grew by 13 percentage points over last year to 54 percent.
