According to a Ford press release, the company’s EV sales for September 2022 tripled when compared to the same month in 2021. That had it selling 4,691 EVs during the month, which represents a 197.3% increase.

Leading the Ford EV sales are its F-150 Lightning. The EV has sold a total of 8,760 units since making its debut in June. Adding to that, the Mustang Mach-E saw sales increase by 47.3% year-over-year.

Ford Gains Momentum in the EV Space

Ford notes its increase in EV sales is boosting its market share in the space, which rose by 3.1% in September compared to the same time last year. As a result, it currently holds a 7% share of the EV segment.

Andrew Frick, vice president, Sales, Distribution and Trucks at Ford Blue, said the following in the news release.

“Ford continued to see high-demand vehicles turning at record rates in September, while developing electric truck and van leadership and extending our overall truck leadership.”

Ford stock is seeing decent trading volume today with some 40 million shares on the move. That’s not bad compared to its daily average trading volume of about 67 million shares.
