2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E deliveries are expected to begin in the U.S. any time now, but it appears that the first batch of EV crossovers has already landed in Norway. We know this because Ford’s Norwegian division posted a few pictures of a trailer-full of Mach-Es on its Instagram account. However, this is an interesting development, as Ford said way back in May that European Mach-E deliveries would be delayed, meaning the U.S. would receive them first.
That clearly isn’t the case now, as this picture of still-wrapped Mach-Es rolling across a snow-filled landscape proves. This delivery arrived in Antwerp, Belgium a few days ago as part of a large shipment that came from Veracruz, Mexico, a few hours away from where the Mach-E is produced at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant.
Regardless, it makes a lot of sense for Ford to prioritize Mach-E deliveries in Norway. The country is currently leading the rest of the world in EV adoption, as all-electric vehicles represented 40 percent of new car sales in 2019, compared to the U.S., where just around two percent of buyers opted for an EV last year.
For those awaiting the arrival of a new Mach-E in the U.S., this sighting should signify that it’s going to happen any day now. Ford previously stated that deliveries in the states would begin in December, so it’s only a matter of time before that happens. Production of the new EV began at the Cuautitlan Plant in late October, as Ford Authority previously reported.

However, Mach-E deliveries weren’t expected to begin in Europe until 2021, so this news seemingly accelerates that timeline a bit. Regardless, those looking to purchase the rather quick GT Performance Edition will still have to wait until late summer of 2021 to take delivery of that particular model.
