Ford says its investment into electrified vehicles, along with trucks and SUVs, is paying off. Electrified vehicles hit a new record sales start, trucks reported best retail start in 13 years, and SUVs posted best first quarter retail sales since 2001, according to the automaker.
Driven largely by the fully electric Mustang Mach-E and F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid, Ford’s electrified vehicle sales increased 74.1 percent to a new record sales start, with 25,980 vehicles sold.
First quarter sales of the fully electric Mustang Mach-E totaled 6,614 vehicles, with days-to-turn of just 7 days. F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid sales jumped 110 percent in March compared to February, making March its best sales performance since launch. Ford sold 7,176 F-150 PowerBoost Hybrids in the first quarter, with 3,949 sold in the month of March.
