Ford is now selling electric vehicles to customers in the U.S. at the lowest price since the company began selling the vehicle in 2014, according to the automaker’s chief financial officer.
Ford said the electric vehicle sales volume reached more than 20,000 units in the second quarter, the most since the automakers inception.
The first three months of 2019 were Ford’s lowest quarter for sales since 2014, when the automans electric vehicles were first launched.
“The first three-month quarter for electric vehicles is the lowest since 2014 and our highest since we launched the EV family in 2019,” Ford’s chief operating officer Bob Ford said in a statement on Wednesday.
Ford plans to ship 500,000 vehicles this year, and the company expects to ship more than 7 million vehicles by 2025.
Ford also plans to bring back the Ford Focus electric car in 2021, which will be its first vehicle to offer a hybrid engine.
More from Business Insider: The Ford Focus will have an electric motor, electric drivetrain, and a range of more than 160 miles.
Ford says the new Focus will be more fuel efficient than the current Ford Fusion Hybrid and Ford Focus Hybrid.
Ford says it will ship 500 to 800 electric vehicles in 2020, which is about a quarter of the automanys current production, and it expects to have up to 7 million EVs in service by 2025, with the first vehicles to be sold in 2021.
As electric vehicles become more popular, Ford says its production of its current lineup of electric vehicles will be halved to about 15,000 a year by 2021, down from 40,000 electric vehicles a year now.
Ford will have a fleet of 10,000 to 15,400 electric vehicles by the end of the decade, down about 40% from its current production.
Ford and its partners will begin offering their electric vehicles at retail stores this fall, and Ford says they expect sales to grow to 30,000 in 2021 from 25,000 today.
