Ford Motor Co (NYSE: F) on Wednesday reported a sequential bounce in Mustang Mach-E sales in March, even as gas-driven versions of the cars dropped appreciably amid semiconductor shortages and production halts.
What Happened: The Dearborn, Michigan-centered corporation marketed 2,363 Mach-Es in March, a jump of about 18% more than February but a decrease of 10% yr-on-calendar year.
Ford began selling the Mach-E, its first all-electric crossover, in December 2020. At the time, the automaker sold just a few units of the design.
For the very first quarter of 2022, Ford sold 6,734 Mach-Es, 1.8% better than a 12 months previously. Gross sales, however, fell 18.7% from the fourth quarter of 2021.
The Mustang Mach-E competes with Tesla Inc’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model Y compact crossover.
