In April, Ford brand U.S. sales increased 62.7% year-over-year (from challenging 2020 year) to 187,345.
The all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E noted 1,951 units (1% of Ford's total result), which is noticeably less than in March and February. We guess that it might be related to the export of Mach-E to Europe.
The company explains that Mach-E is turning in just 4 days on dealer lots (compared to 7 days a month ago), at an average of $45,800. In other words, demand far exceeds the current supply of cars in the U.S.
"The fully electric Mustang Mach-E is turning on dealer lots in just 4 days, with a majority ofbuyers only considering a fully electric vehicleas their purchase. Ford has sold 8,565 vehicles and sales continue to grow. Order banks now open for the high-performance GT Mach-E version."
