Ford made a startling announcement this week concerning the sales of their hybrid vehicles. Through May, Ford has sold 37,000 hybrid vehicles. This tops Ford's record for full year hybrid sales of 35,496, set in 2010. Ford also says the 37,000 vehicles sold represents a 375% increase when compared to the same time frame last year.
A good amount of this increase is due to in part to Ford expanding their hybrid lineup. In 2010, the only hybrid you could buy from Ford was the Fusion. Now, Ford's hybrid lineup has grown to the Fusion Hybrid, Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid, C-Max Hybrid, C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid, and the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.
“We’re working tirelessly to get as many hybrids to the market as we can right now to meet this unprecedented customer demand for our electrified vehicles. The success we are experiencing with hybrids is energizing the whole company,” said Ford U.S. sales analyst, Erich Merkle.
