According to Ford’s July 2022 sales announcement, the automaker’s sales of EVs were up 168.7 percent for the month. The 2,173 deliveries of the F-150 Lightning were the best month yet since the truck’s launch. The Blue Oval also moved 526 examples of the E-Transit. The automaker claims this model holds 95 percent of the electric van market.
Ford is gearing up to introduce the next-gen Mustang on September 14 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The pony car will continue to be available with a V8 engine, and it’ll allegedly be available with around 500 horsepower (373 kilowatts). The 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Ecoboost powerplant will also still be part of the lineup. Buyers can still get a manual gearbox, too.
Rumors continue to swirl about the possibility of a hybrid powertrain. An electric motor would reportedly power the front axle, making this the first all-wheel-drive Mustang ever available from the factory. This variant allegedly wouldn’t be available when the new pony car launches, though.
