The automaker Ford Motor reported on Monday the delivery of 4,353 electric vehicles in June 2022, an increase of 76.6% increase from the same period in 2021. The automaker said that, going into July, both F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E dealer stock is higher than last month, positioning both for a stronger July sales month.
F-Series sales were up 26.3 percent over a year ago, representing 37.9 percent of Ford’s overall sales mix – up from 32.0 percent in May. F-Series has been expanding its truck leadership through the first half of the year, outselling its second-place competitor by about 40,000 trucks, Ford said. Almost 60 percent of F-Series retail sales came from previously placed orders and as it continues to turn at record rates.
“Amid industry-wide supply constraints, Ford outperformed the industry driven by strong F-Series, Explorer and new Expedition and Navigator SUV sales. Combined, these vehicles represented just over 56 percent of our sales in June – up about 8 percentage points from May. F-150 Lightning was America’s best-selling electric truck in June in its first full month of sales, while our overall electric vehicle sales were up 77 percent over last year.” – Andrew Frick, vice president, Sales, Distribution & Trucks, Ford Blue
Recently, Ford said it will recall 2,666 U.S. and 220 Canada F-150 Lightning trucks due to a software issue that may result in a failure to provide adequate warning of low tire pressure, Reuters reported. Ford added that there were no accidents or injuries connected to the recall of the recently launched F-150 electric truck.
