Context
A voluntary alert advising Californians to conserve energy during a specific time frame was issued in mid-June 2021 to “help balance supply and demand” on the power grid during an extreme heatwave in the region. Unplugging electric vehicles during peak usage times was one recommended measure included in a list of power-saving strategies issued by the California System Operator.
and new construction has to be connected tot he grid.. lol @ socialist policies

from an article in Motor Trend...

We reached out to Ford for clarification, and found out that Mustang inventories were impacted by the ongoing chip shortage rippling across the auto industry, particularly in April and May, when Mustang production was actually halted altogether. Sales for those months likely represented a sell-off of whatever Mustang ground stock existed at dealerships nationwide, hence the seemingly precipitous sales slide from April's 8,000 units to 4,436 in May. A Ford representative also confirmed that the Mach-E received some "priority" as a hot new product, but added that the Mach-E's sales represent real orders that are being filled as they come in, which, along with the EV's February sales high of 3,739 units, dispels the notion that June sales were somehow a "glut" drop of pent-up Mach-E orders.
So, yeah, the Mach-E outsold the Mustang, but there are some asterisks. We aren't entering the end-times because an electric Mustang SUV is out-selling the Mustang, because in all likelihood, the Mustang will retake its sales position ahead of the Mach-E as the chip issue subsides. Or perhaps not. We'll have to wait and see; in the meantime, consider it nifty that Ford's EV has enough appeal to even draw close enough to a production-limited Mustang in the sales race.
