Dearborn, Mich., Jan. 4, 2024 – Ford continued to broaden consumers’ options in 2023, solidifying its leadership in gas vehicle lines with its best-selling trucks and vans, while also accelerating sales of its electric and hybrid vehicles to new records.

Ford’s electric vehicles posted record Q4 sales to cap off a record EV year. Ford sold 25,937 EVs in Q4 (up 24 percent over Q3 sales) and 72,608 vehicles for the year (up 18 percent). Growth came from America’s best-selling electric truck, F-150 Lightning (up 74 percent for Q4) and Mustang Mach-E sales of 40,771 for the year – up 3 percent for the year and its best year of sales since first launched in 2021.

Ford’s E-Transit was America’s best-selling electric van nameplate in 2023 on sales of 7,672 – up 18 percent over 2022.

“In a year of challenges, from a labor strike to supply issues, our amazing lineup of gas, electric and hybrid vehicles and our fantastic dealers delivered solid growth and momentum. We have the products that customers want,” said Jim Farley, Ford president and CEO. “I am especially proud Ford remained the No. 2 EV brand in America and our next-gen, digitally advanced new EVs are on the way.

“Now we are spring-loaded for 2024 with new versions coming of our most popular trucks and SUVs, a full year of new Super Duty and Mustang, and a big year for Lincoln.”

Total Ford hybrid sales accelerated at year’s end with record Q4 sales of 37,229 vehicles – up 55 percent. For the year, Ford hybrid vehicle sales were up 25 percent on record annual sales. Ford has both the first and second best-selling hybrid trucks in America, with Maverick Hybrid sales totaling 52,361 trucks, a 67 percent gain and more than half of Maverick’s total sales in 2023. Total Maverick sales were up  26.5 percent. The F-150 Hybrid posted sales gains of 41 percent over a year ago on 2023 sales of 50,103.

Ford America’s Truck Leader

For the 47th year in a row, Ford F-Series was America’s best-selling truck and America’s best-selling vehicle for the 42nd year in a row. It’s a streak that spans four generations and has lasted longer than the entire lifespan of many other popular consumer products. In addition, the Ford F-150 Lightning was the No. 1 selling electric truck and the F-150 Hybrid the No. 1 selling full-size hybrid truck for 2023.  In total, 750,789 customers chose a new Ford F-Series truck in 2023.

Ford again was the No. 1 selling truck manufacturer for Q4 and for full year 2023, providing customers what they want with electric, hybrid or gas-powered trucks. Ford sold 1,081,777 trucks and vans in 2023 – up 13 percent and outselling the second place’s total pickup and van sales by more than 65,000 for the year.

“Ford has the vehicle a customer wants – that has been key to our success in 2023, with our continued dominance in trucks and SUVs. We saw strong gains coming from gas-powered vehicles and record setting sales for our hybrid and electric vehicles,” said Andrew Frick, president, Ford Blue.  “Customers know they get choice when they come to Ford. None of our competitors offer the powertrain choices that Ford has become known for in trucks. And it will continue with the launch of the new F-150 later this month.”

Ford F-Series expanded its lead in 2023, on sales of 750,789 – up 15 percent over the previous year and outselling second place Silverado by about 200,000 trucks. Gas- and diesel-powered F-Series sales were up 12 percent, while top selling F-150 Lightning and F-150 Hybrid achieved record sales for the year – up 55 and 41 percent, respectively.
