Ford Will Manufacture Mustang Mach-E In China For Local Customers

Currently, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is produced at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico for North America and Europe. However, the automaker announced today that Changan Ford, a 50:50 joint venture between Changan Automobile and Ford Motor Company, will manufacture the Mustang Mach-E in China for local customers.

The Mustang Mach-E will offer Chinese customers a smart cockpit equipped with Ford’s latest driver-assist technologies and an infotainment system that gets even better over time with advanced firmware over-the-air (FOTA) updates.

The newest generation of the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced driver-assist technologies and SYNC+ intelligent infotainment system will offer L2+ level automatic driving assistance functions, enabling Mach-E drivers to operate their vehicles hands-free on prequalified sections of divided highways. In addition, the vehicle supports all FOTA updates, including vehicle controls, with improvements and new features delivered over-the-air.

Ford is the first automobile manufacturer in China to offer cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology in mass production vehicles and will deploy C-V2X in the Mach-E to help drivers in China anticipate potential driving hazards and improve traffic safety and efficiency.

The Mustang Mach-E manufactured in China will have an estimated range of over 600 kilometers (373 miles). Tuned using Ford’s racing simulator, the automaker says the Mustang Mach-E is an “electric pony” that inherits the Ford Mustang family’s legendary sportscar performance and delivers driving pleasure in a new, all-electric intelligent package.

Ford will also localize production of the Mustang Mach-E’s GT performance edition in China. The GT high-performance edition will adopt a front and rear dual-motor layout, joining the 3-second club with its impressive 0-100 kilometer-per-second acceleration capabilities.

Ford is moving quickly in delivering its electrification commitment with investments of more than $11.5 billion in electric vehicle development through 2022. The localized production of Mach-E in China is a key step in the company’s “Best of Ford, Best of China” strategy to offer Chinese customers industry-leading smart vehicles and advanced technologies. The Chinese Mustang Mach-E will launch later this year.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    It appears that Ford Motor Company is nearly as clueless as Ford Authority.
    Very few Americans want electric vehicles and nobody wants a Ford that was made in China.
    Y’all are losing subscribers and credibility.
