I've seen more than three Ford executives getting their vehicles. I don't think theirs are in this count since they are company cars. Some were delivered before OKTB.

Company cars are included in the sales reporting per Ford. Execs that don't "lease" their car but simply drive a pool car for a week or two to check it out aren't counted as a sale, but a manger taking home their yearly lease car is.

U.S. sales volume reflects transactions with (i) retail and fleet customers (as reported by dealers), (ii) government and (iii) Ford management.

Interesting. I don't know what to make of the 3 then. We heard about at least two deliveries in Dallas, plus there's Palmer, Frischmuth, Buzz, and Cannis who've shared pictures of theirs (mostly Grabber Blues). I assume there are even more whose photos I just haven't found yet (or they aren't sharing).

It's possible it's a "pool car" they've taken home and Tweeted about, rather than actually taken delivery of. Darren's post that got shared on here sounded like it was truly "his" car, so I figured he was one of the 3. I doubt Ford is delaying management lease sales reporting, FCA got in legal trouble a few years back for "discrepancies" in sales reporting and I'm sure Ford paid close attention.

Or maybe only production cars are counted. All of the execs I mentioned got cars built prior to oktb.

Correct, only customer saleable cars can be counted. If the car is technically a prototype and will be scrapped at the end of its life, it won't get recorded. The Mach-Es that go for crash testing or durability testing won't be counted as a sale. That's why I think some of the execs must be posting about long-term loans of prototypes rather than "their" cars they get through the traditional management lease channel.

Follow up...apparently the premium in Dallas is being sold to someone today.
