Ford brand reports 148,967 vehicle sales in September (down 17.5% year-over-year) and 1,331,542 year-to-date (down 6.7%). The rate of decline is lower, which suggests that maybe the semiconductor supply situation is improving.
Sales of the electrified vehicles - xEVs (BEVs, PHEVs, HEVs) - increased 92% to 9,150 (a new record).
"Ford’s electrified vehicle portfolio continues to attract new customers to the brand at a higher rate than Ford overall –at a conquest rate that is 6 points above. September brought another new record for Ford electrified vehicles. Ford’s electrified vehicle sales hit 9,150 –up 91.6 percent over last year."
"F-150 Lightning reservations have now surpassed the 150,000 mark, with over 75 percent of these reservations coming from outside of Ford."
In the case of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, in September sales amounted to 1,578 (1.1% of Ford's total result) - below the monthly average so far this year. The total volume in the Q3 was 5,880.
"Mustang Mach-E retail sales expanded 9.2 percent in September. With 18,855 Mach-Es sold through September, Mach-E ranks second in full electric SUV sales behind Tesla’s Model Y. Over-the-air modem activation rates for Mach-E are the highest in Ford’s portfolio at 97 percent."
The gross stock of Mach-E is at about 5,000 in the U.S. (at dealerships and in transport, we assume). That's two times more than the 2,600 we noted in August.
