Ford released their December 2021 and full 2021 calendar year sales figures. The automaker continues to knock it out of the park especially in the EV market. December 2021 sales were down compared to December 2020. But that is mostly due to the headwinds Ford faced with the global supply chain issues. This impacted all automakers and Ford was no exception. However, even in the face of those challenges Ford still had a strong finish to the year and an impressive year overall, taking the best-selling trophy in several categories.
Ford truck lineup: Ford F-250, Ford F-150 Lightning, Ford F-150, Ford Ranger and Ford Maverick.
F-Series Does It Again
Ford is aiming to be the top EV automaker in the world. And based on the numbers they may have a real shot at it soon. Ford EV sales grew 36 percent faster than the segment overall in 2021. They hit a new sales record for the month of December and 2021 as a whole. Only Tesla sold more full electric vehicles than Ford in 2021. Tesla has been in the EV game a lot longer, but Ford is making great strides. With all the investments Ford has going into the EVs they could topple Tesla as the number one EV automaker at some point. The F-150 Lightning and E-Transit sales will begin this year. We expect with that the gap to Tesla will narrow further.
