That's somewhat of the subtext to which I was referring.

I'd speculate that Ford's profitability isn't coming from (or being enhanced by) the EV market - I.E. If Ford (or any other OEM) was EV-only, profitability measures may have to have a different standard of comparison.

Is there another EV-only manufacturer to which to compare?
