One of the key components of the Ford Mustang Mach-E is the battery pack for the vehicle, which will be shared with the electric Transit van. To keep the battery pack safe, it is wrapped in a housing that is built by a company called Nemak. The Ford Mustang Mach-E is being produced in North America, as are the battery housings.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E battery housing that Nemak is building is a 2.2 x 1.5-meter structure made of aluminum components. Those components are mainly stampings and extrusions that are joined together using state-of-the-art robotic welding techniques. The battery structure also uses adhesives and self-piercing riveting processes.

getting about 2100 dealerships ready to sell the Mustang Mach-E. Selling the vehicle requires the dealership to get certified, which includes sending technicians for training and buying appropriate tools to work on the vehicles. Ford is also currently training sales staff to answer questions and sell the vehicle.

  1. This news is only about the battery housing. I believe that Ford is using LG Chemical cells to make the real battery for the new EVs and the new hybrids (Escape and Explorer). Ford used Panasonic cells for the Fusion and C-Max Hybrid and Energi batteries, and used Sanyo Ni-MH cells for the original Escape Hybrid battery.

    • I like how Ford is contracting suppliers for motors/batteries/housings/ etc.
      The technology is still in early stages, and breakthroughs could make any part of the process outdated quickly. Changes to the plants, equipment for production, and employee training will be expensive, but being stuck producing older componets that are heavier, less efficient, or more expensive to produce, would be even more costly.

  2. It’s just an example that shows how complicated it is to build a new vehicle and now with electric, it is more complicated. 100 years ago cars were simple and became more complex as technology grew and improved. With EV’s it starts off complicated and complex, a big challenge for today’s young engineers.
