Here’s how many EVs Ford plans to produce in 2023
Ford said in a press release
Friday it will “boost production of its popular EVs” after a “strong start to 2023 sales.”
Here are the EV production targets Ford looks to meet by the end of this year.
- F-150 Lightning: 150,000 annual run rate
- Mustang Mach-E: 210,000 annual run rate
After propelling Ford to number two in US EV sales, selling over 39k, Ford aims to nearly double the hourly production of its Mustang Mach-E.
Despite the production halt, the automaker says overall F-150 Lightning production is on track to triple this year, selling 3,600 through February.
Kumar Galhotra, president of Ford Blue, says the increase “benefits both our customers and our business.”electrek's Take
This isn’t the first or second time Ford has announced it will increase production of its popular EVs after a positive response.
Two years ago, Ford said it was planning to double production
to include 55,000 electric vehicles (three times its original guidance) in 2023.
Now the company is aiming to manufacture over 360,000 EVs this year. Although it may sound like a significant increase, it’s still not enough. The demand is there. The issue is keeping up with production.
The Lightning is an incredible vehicle; hopefully, Ford can get back on track and deliver this year once the issues are fixed. There are a lot of customers waiting for Ford vehicles to be delivered.
