I’m starting a new blog with the data I’ve been collecting on C-Max Inventory. I don’t know of a source for inventory, so I’ve collected data from Edmunds.com and Cars.com. Since January, I’ve followed C-Max Energi dealer inventory and to a lesser extent, C-Max Hybrid inventory.
The inventory according to Edmunds.com within 50 miles of the first 19 cities that Ford shipped the C-Max Energi to last year is depicted in the following chart. There is overlap between the 50-mile radius of these cities, but there are many markets with C-Max Energi inventory, like Utah and Nevada that are not included. (The original 19 markets for EV Certified dealers are Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Orlando, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Richmond, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Tucson, and Washinton D.C.)
Another method to follow inventory is to get data on just one area and assume that the country follows it. I chose 90210 (Beverly Hills CA) after seeing this zipcode being followed by a different auto blog. I’ve followed the inventory for this zipcode with Edmunds.com and Cars.com.
