Back in July, we reported that the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E production was scheduled to begin at the Ford Cuautitlan Plant in Mexico on October 26th, 2020. Now, Ford Authority has confirmed with its sources that Mustang Mach-E production did in fact start on Monday, as originally planned. Additionally, we reached out for comment on the Mach-E’s expexted delivery dates as well.
The Mach-E is “on schedule to start customer deliveries in late 2020,” Emma Berg, Ford Global EV Communications Manager, told Ford Authority in a statement. This aligns with our report from May, when we first learned that Ford’s first-ever all-electric crossover was on track to be delivered to U.S. customers in late 2020, followed by European customers in early 2021.
The ultimate early version of the Mach-E, the First Edition, should begin arriving at dealerships in late December. The First Edition comes loaded with the Extended Range battery, all-wheel-drive, red brake calipers, and First Edition badges. The initial run of First Edition Mach-Es sold out rather quickly, but Ford later made more units available through a variety of outlets.
Ford’s first-ever all-electric SUV will be packing a ton of cool tech when it launches later this year, including over-the-air update capability, serious winter driving chops, quick-charging capability, a unique door latch system, and the ability to accurately predict range based on real-time data. Plus, buyers will also receive up to five free charges at Electrify America charging stations.
In addition to cutting the prices of every Mach-E trim save for the GT, Ford has also added a bit more power to the lineup than originally expected, and final EPA numbers are expected to be higher than initially stated as well.
