The automaker is #2 with a bullet for EVs


Tesla is America’s #1 EV brand. Ever wonder what’s #2? Chances you have gasoline running in your veins and you don’t care, but it’s a valid question. Avis? Nah, wrong industry. Ford? You wouldn’t be wrong.

And how are Ford’s EVs doing in the American market? Here’s the stats for October 2022.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

Mustang Mach-E: Ah, the vehicle that fans of the pony car love to hate! Compared to October 2021, sales grew 7.3 percent to 3,055. Total calendar year sales so far through October is 31,144, which is 43.5 percent better than 2021.

F-150 Lightning: It’s America’s best-selling EV truck with sales of 2,436, which is its best month since it was introduced. Total calendar-year production through October is 11,196.

E-Transit: Ford’s electric commercial van, the E-Transit sold 770 units in October. That’s a 71.5 percent gain from September 2022’s sales. Current tally for the year is 5,157.

Overall, Ford’s October EV market share is up 2.2 percent compared to October 2021. That translates to a market share of 8.9 percent.

Contrast Ford’s EV numbers with aggregate Ford production (not including Lincoln): Ford is down 9.8 percent for October 2022 (compared to the same in 2021), and down 2.0 percent for the calendar year.

Regardless of Ford’s or the market’s ups or downs for 2022, it will be interesting to see how Ford maintains its position as the #2 producer of EVs in the U.S.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.


  1. Never say never!
    I said never….I now I have Cadillac Lyriq on order….since may 18th
    Electric cars are faster have more torque and have lower maintenance cost….still keeping my GMC Truck and my 1967 camaro….just can’t wait to let my Ford Explorer go.

  2. FYi most of the Ford F150 buyers are unhappy with the truck. Cant tow much very far, and will not function in a normal working environment unless used like car. Maintenance costs are yet to be seen, but an unknown battery replacement cost will make it all happen at once. Why no cycle amounts are ever discussed. EV failure is inevitable….
