Generally, Ford doesn’t break out hybrid sales from its overall model sales, which can make it a bit difficult to determine just how well a particular electrified vehicle is selling. However, in its most recent sales report for the month of July, the automaker did indeed reveal how many Ford F-150 PowerBoost hybrid pickups it sold, which is an interesting and notable development. That number came to a total of 4,364 units, which helped contribute to total Ford F-Series sales (which includes the Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty) of 63,341 vehicles.
That result represents a 21.08 percent increase for the F-Series lineup, which is notable given the fact that the popular pickup remains a hot commodity among shoppers, as well as one of the most considered new vehicles on the market today. As Ford Authority previously reported, the Ford F-150 PowerBoost wasn’t the only electrified pickup to experience a sales boost either, as the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning recorded 2,173 sales last month – its best result since the EV pickup launched in the second-half of May.
That was good enough to keep the F-150 Lightning atop the EV pickup segment, ahead of its rivals that include the Rivian R1T and GMC Hummer EV. With both the Chevy Silverado EV and Tesla Cybertruck lagging behind in terms of joining that competition, Ford CEO Jim Farley recently took a light-hearted jab at Tesla CEO Elon Musk over the latter model’s numerous delays over the past three or so years.
Meanwhile, Ford recently sent a number of F-150 PowerBoost and Lightning pickups to Kentucky to help clean up the destruction left behind following the recession of historic flood waters in the area, as well as provide mobile power for those that are aiding in those efforts.
