In November, the total sales of Ford and Lincoln vehicles in the US decreased by almost 8% year-over-year to 146,364. The company reports strong demand, which indicates that the problem is still in the limited supply of new vehicles.
- Ford sales: 140,260 (down 7.9%) and 1,608,965 (down 2.6%)
- Lincoln sales: 6,104 (down 5.0%) and 76,220 (down 5.6%)
- Total sales: 146,364 (down 7.8%) and 1,685,185 (down 2.7%)
In the case of all-electric vehicle sales, Ford once again doubled its sales year-over-year. Last month, the company delivered 6,255 units (up 103%), which is also 4.5% of the total volume.
Ford noted also that its EV sales expanded at approximately twice the rate of the overall EV segment in November and that it is America's second best-selling brand and manufacturer of EVs behind Tesla.
"Ford share of the electric vehicle segment expanded about 2 percentage points over a year ago – standing at 8.6 percent share for the month. Ford’s electric vehicles are conquesting from competitor vehicles at a rate of over 60 percent this year."
Ford's BEV lineup includes three models - the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the all-new Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup, and Ford E-Transit commercial van.

- Ford F-150 Lightning: 13,258 (new)
- Ford E-Transit: 5,811 (new)

Ford F-150 Lightning
Sales of the Ford F-150 Lightning amounted to 2,062 units in November, which is basically in line with the 6-month average. We can guess that about 2,000 units per month simply is the initial production rate.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
The Ford Mustang Mach-E remains the company's top BEV by volume with 3,539 units sold in November (up 15% year-over-year). So far this year, over 34,000 Mach-E were sold in the US.
Ford Mustang Mach-E production
Production of the Ford Mustang Mach-E in Mexico amounted to 8,367 units last month (and 71,712 year-to-date).
The numbers exclude China, where the Mach-E is locally produced and sold.
Ford recently celebrated the production of the 150,000th Mach-E. That, combined with over 142,000 produced in Mexico, indicates that the production in China so far reached about 8,000 units. Such production volume - "a few thousand units" - was also suggested in the Chinese reports in October, by the way of price reductions.
A total of 654 Ford E-Transit were sold in November, which, as usual, makes this model America's best-selling all-electric commercial van.
Ford also noted that so far this year 5,811 E-Transit were sold and that accounts for about 80% share of its segment (all-electric commercial vans).
