2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Production Has Started

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 capabilityserious winter driving chopsquick-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.

We’ll have more on the new Mach-E soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Mustang Mach-E news and 24/7 Ford news coverage.

    Even Tesla builds electric cars in the USA…

    Parts content percent determines if “American made.” Not assembly plant location not global corporate company headquarters not even if paid with hard earned American(US) dollars.

    IMHO it’s based on global HQ of manufacturer (and its suppliers). If you follow the supply chain of Toyota in USA, it leads to many Japanese-owned suppliers, even though most components are made in USA. All profits accrue to Japan (as well as decision-making). Though they invest in USA, Japan wins.
