The Ford Mustang Mach-E is entering its second year of production, believe it or not, and Ford is celebrating the 150,000th year of assembly Mustang Mach-e with optimism its electric vehicle future. The milestone Mustang Mach-e rolled off the line at Ford’s Cuautitlán (coo-ow-teet-lán) stamping and assembly plant in the state of Mexico, where production is growing with Ford’s plant expansion.
The American automaker is adding new battery and chassis lines and an additional assembly line to the plant to massively boost production of its electric vehicles. Ford says it wants to produce 600,000 electric cars a year by the end of 2023 and then 2 million by 2026. It is now Mustang EVs It takes 10 days from the start of assembly to a dealer batch, but that number could shrink as we approach 2026. Of course, the global production target is the 2 million mark. includes foreign-made electric cars and those made in North America. Increasing production could help Ford maintain its new spot as the top-selling electric car maker in the U.S., only trailing behind. Tesla.
Currently, these North American EVs are the Ford Mustang Mach-e and Ford F-150 Lightning, manufactured at the Rogue Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford wants to reach a similar milestone F-150 Lightning pickup truck like Mach-e’s; The company plans to produce 150,000 Lightning EVs per year by 2023.
The F-150 Lightning still has time to catch up to the Mustang Mach-e, which went into production almost two years ago. Indeed, debut In the case of Ford’s electric crossover, it seems like it happened a lot more recently, but we’re dealing with the global pandemic and transition situation in the automotive industry.
It may also be that the Mustang Mach-e still seems relatively rare to many. Or at least it seems so to me, for whom the sight of Mach-e is so rare that when I see it in the wild I still jump up and direct my eyes at the EV. I like the Mach-e; it is a good alternative for many Teslas what i see Texas roads.
According to Ford, this novelty and popularity has also come as a surprise car manufacturer myself:
“When we put the pony on this Mustang, we knew we were going to have skeptics. What we didn’t know then was how popular this car would become,” said Darren Palmer, vice president of electric vehicle programs for Ford Model e. “I love seeing Mustang Mach-E vehicles on the road and talking to customers, and I’m seeing more and more of them.”
And the Mustang Mach’s steady growth is only going to get more steady and accelerating now that Ford is bringing the electric car to 15 additional markets, including New Zealand, Brazil and Argentina. The EV is now sold in 37 countries worldwide, up from 22 in the first year of sales. This number of export countries could increase further if Mach production in Cuautitlán and elsewhere becomes even more streamlined.
