By Main Street Sentinel Staff
Ford Motor sales are up in the second quarter of 2022.
The company reported 483,688 cars and trucks sold this year, rebounding from a drop in 2021 sales caused by pandemic shortages. Sales of Ford’s F-Series pickup trucks have more than doubled since 2021, and sales of the Mustang Mach-E are up 72 percent.
Previously, automakers including Ford were strongly affected by the pandemic shortage of computer chips necessary for car manufacture, and many were forced to close plants.
Since bringing its plants back online, Ford has started production of the electric F-150 Lightings. 2,296 have been sold since April 2022.
