Thus far, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has proven to be popular among new vehicle shoppers, consistently ranking as one of Kelley Blue Book’s most considered electrified vehicles, attracting most of its owners from rival brands, and selling for more on the used market than the new one, thanks to a tilted supply and demand curve. Ford Mustang Mach-E sales didn’t let up last month either, according to the automaker’s May sales report, as the EV crossover recorded a large chunk of its annual total last month.
In May, The Blue Oval sold a total of 5,179 Ford Mustang Mach-E EV crossovers, which brings its year-to-date total up to 15,718 units. That’s a significant chunk of sales for one month out of the first five this year, and could likely be a sign that production of the Mach-E has ramped up recently. It’s a large jump from the Mach-E’s Q1 totals as well, which totaled just 6,734 units.
What’s particularly interesting about these numbers is the fact that overall Ford Mustang family sales declined 13 percent in the first quarter of the year, coming in at 20,720 units. Ford sold 13,986 ICE-powered Mustangs in Q1, which was a 19 percent decrease from the same period in 2021, while Mach-E sales increased by two percent. However, it’s worth noting that these results were at least partially affected by ongoing supply constraints.
Regardless, it’s clear that the Ford Mustang Mach-E is resonating with shoppers and likely facing a boost in availability as well. The EV crossover isn’t just popular with consumers, either, as CEO Jim Farley recently said that he believes the Mach-E is a “much better” overall vehicle than the Ford Edge, which is set to be discontinued following the 2023 model year.
