Ford brand reports 153,582 vehicle sales in the U.S. in May (up 4.1% year-over-year), including very strong results for its electrified lineup.
The all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E noted 1,945 units (1.3% of Ford's total result), which is almost the same as in April. The year-to-date number is 10,510.
We guess that demand for the Mach-E remains higher than supply, as the manufacturer reports only 10 days on the lots (compared to 4 days in April and 7 days in March). Every fourth Mach-E was sold in California.
"With just 10 days to turn, Mustang Mach-E is essentially selling as soon as it hits dealer showrooms. Mach-E sales totaled 1,945, with 10,510 Mustang Mach-E’ssold this year. California is the largest market for this all-new high performance electric SUV, with one out of every four Mach-E’ssold in the state."

Ford Mustang Mach-E production - May 2021
One of the most interesting things is the production volume. In May, Ford Mustang Mach-E production reached a new monthly record of 6,845.
That's more than three times the number of units sold in the U.S. We guess that most of them are exported to Europe. Just recently, Ford Mustang Mach-E noted 1,384 registrations in Norway, becoming the best-selling car in May.
After five months, Mach-E's production stands at 27,816 - more than all the other Mustangs (26,089).
