Known as the first car company to automate production line and produce new cars so efficiently for the masses, Ford has a slew of achievement to begin with. Started in 1903 by Henry Ford in the land of auto, Detroit, Michigan,Ford incorporated a moving assembly line undercutting the production time massively. Ford also introduced daily wage and 8 hours working shift. It is the true American car company, that survived two world wars, the great depression, and 2008 financial crisis without going into bankruptcy.
Ford at one point had various other car companies such as Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo Automobile Division under its umbrella along with significant shares in Mazda Motors. But going into the new millennium, Ford had a slew of financial problems which rendered ford to sell those companies. Ford retained Lincoln and Troller while selling off the rest of its assets.
Currently, Ford has 13.7% of market share of vehicle sales in US (2020 figures) which is on decline compared to the previous year. Ford family owns 2% of share but still retains 40% of voting right.
Fast forward to the 3rd decade of 21st century, Ford now has the consistently best-selling pickup truck in the USA. Ford vehicles now with their reliable brand image and shift towards carbon neutral operations and EV adoption, have now come up in par with the competition.
Ford currently focuses on SUVs (Bronco, EcoSport, Escape, Explorer, Expedition), Pickup trucks (F-150, F-250, F-350, Ranger) and Cars (Mustang, GT) while pushing for electrification of the fleet with newer models with PHEV and hybrid add-on on the current models. While push for the hybrid and PHEV models were on rise, fully electric fleet of cars such as Mustang Mach-E came just on 2021. Nevertheless, electric fleet of Fords are to be seen on the road.
A true American icon which went through a century of hardship now is on the verge of transition. Shifting away from gas powered engine to hybrids, PHEV and electric fleet would be the way for future.
