Ford quarterly U.S. sales increased due to demand for SUV, EV

Ford auto sales in the US during the second quarter increased 9.6% to 475,327 units, benefiting from strong SUV and EV demand in June, the automaker said.

The automaker posted a 117% increase in U.S. electric and hybrid vehicle sales for June.

The automaker’s SUV sales increased 37% in June while its Lincoln SUV sales increased 23.3%.

The automaker sold 12,975 units of its Mustang Mach-E SUV in the first six months of 2021. The company is set to release the electric version of its best-selling F-150 pickup in 2022.

These figures come amid the ongoing chip shortage crisis worldwide.

Ford is among those automakers who has had to temporarily halt production in plants to deal with the ongoing chip shortage.
