Hmmm... BEVs outsell PHEVs by 33% - and with only about half as many models to choose from.

We just bought one of the remaining 2017 models, a white gold Titanium, from Hudson Ford in Hudson Wisconsin.  If memory serves, they still have a 2017 SE on the lot.  Plus a half a dozen low mileage SE loaner cars, all 2017 with 2000-3000 miles each.  They appear to have one of the best inventories of any dealer in the Twin Cities right now.

973 C-MAX Hybrids and 18 C-MAX Energi plug-in Hybrids for 991 combined were sold during May 2018.

Prior month charts and table are removed from older posts in this thread because current month contains all prior data.

 

 

Random Thoughts as the US C-MAX story draws to a close, with the end of production of all C-MAX Hybrid models in early May 2018, after the end of C-MAX Energi production in December 2017.

  • Combined US C-MAX sales of all models during 2012-2018 are just over 140,000 as of May 31, 2018. 
  • I doubt that there are 10,000 C-MAX vehicles in dealer inventory and in the delivery pipeline, so the US C-MAX chapter will close 7 years of production with total sales of less than 150,000, falling far short of two decent months of F-150 truck sales.
  • Although initially marketed as a 'Prius killer', C-MAX Hybrids were never more than niche vehicles, primarily to help Corporate Average Fuel Economy numbers. 
  • Mustang and Focus account for about 50% of retail passenger car sales -- Is it any wonder that Ford is now choosing to prioritize Trucks, SUV's Mustang, and Focus?
  • Other than vague details of a future "Model E" announced to be built in Mexico several years ago, to my knowledge, there are no formally-announced Hybrid, plug-in Hybrid, or full-electric 'C-size' Ford vehicles to replace it.
  • Ford Fusion (and thus Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi Hybrid) are ALSO on the list of passenger cars slated to go away.
  • Will a loyal Ford buyer (is there even such a thing as a loyal brand buyer any more?) wait for the next Ford Hybrid, Ford Plug-in Hybrid, or Ford Battery Electric vehicle, or will they look elsewhere?

We know there is going to be a Escape Hybrid and Plugin in the near future (2019-20), I'm unaware of any other FORD EV vehicles seen yet.

NOTE: Reporting format change - This is the last month I'll post .png screen shots of the table and charts.  

This month only, I've posted the attached table and charts in both traditional screen-shot .png AND now .pdfs, formatted to a 13"x19" landscape page. Next month, updated .png screen-shots will no longer be posted.

I was running out of screen room to capture the ever-expanding rows of the historical table in a single screen-shot.

Note also that .pdf files do require a .pdf reader app on your viewing device. You likely already have such a viewer installed. If not, there are both free and paid apps that will permit you to display .pdf files.

cars.com has 1167 new c-max hybrids in the USA for sale starting at 15,805 like 10,000 off MSRP

 

They only have 57 c-max energis

 

Some of these "new" cars may not be totally new based on me clicking on one link that had a bit over 3000 miles on it.

This should be going down pretty fast now with fewer cars left to be sold. :sad:

373 C-MAX Hybrids and 4 C-MAX Energi plug-in Hybrids sold during August 2018 for a total of 377.

 

As of September 6, 2018, CarGurus.com shows just a total of 663 new C-MAX Hybrids and 33 new C-MAX Energi plug-in Hybrids remaining nationwide. Not every dealership list their inventory with every online service, so this is only one estimate of the new C-MAX cars still available in dealer inventory.

 

https://media.ford.c...8-aug-sales.pdf

https://insideevs.co...ales-scorecard/

 

Total C-MAX Hybrid sales since introduction in 2012 are now just over 100,000.  

Total C-MAX Energi Hybrid sales since 2012 are now over 42,000.

 

With the spectacular ramp-up in Model 3 production and deliveries this year, it's estimated that Tesla has already delivered over 55,000 all-electric Model 3's this year.

Has anyone seen any recent updates on a "C-MAX replacement" or "Model E" originally announced for assembly in Mexico after C-MAX production concluded? Not sure if the just-announced NAFTA-replacement-agreement with Mexico and Canada affected Ford's Mexico product plans. 

 

As part of the 100th anniversary of the River Rouge plant in Dearborn MI, Ford recently announced an F-150 Hybrid is to be assembled there beginning in 2020.

CarGurus.com shows just 422 new C-MAX Hybrids and 21 Energi Hybrids nationwide.

121 C-MAX Hybrids and zero C-MAX Energi Hybrids were reported sold in October 2018, the first month since Hybrid introduction in September 2012 that zero Energi Hybrids were sold.

 

Cargurus.com shows just 272 total new 2017 and 2018 C-MAX in the US as follows: 242 SE Hybrids, 12 SE Energi Hybrids, 2 Titanium Hybrids and 16 Titanium Energi Energi Hybrids. 

Not all dealerships participate in all websites listing vehicles for sale, so this is not a definitive number, but the number of unsold new C-MAXes remaining nationwide is quite likely in the low hundreds.

https://insideevs.co...ales-scorecard/

 

NOTES: I've gone back to posting screenshots for the chart and tables simply because it's faster, and frankly, I'm probably the only one looking at them here.

The table image now includes sales October 2013 to October 2018.

September 2012 to September 2013 no longer appears, but I still have the data in the table stored on my computer. Just too difficult to read a large table of data in print smaller than 9 points.

Both charts still show the full sales history for now.

Because the prior month pdfs still include the full sales history up through September 2018, those attached to the September 2018 sales report I posted will remain in this thread.
