The First Chinese Ford Mustang Mach-E Has Been Built

As Ford Authority reported back in January, Changan Ford – a 50:50 joint venture between Changan Automobile and Ford Motor Company – is producing the Ford Mustang Mach-E in China for local customers. This endeavor got off to a rocky start following a bit of a mixup regarding the Chinese zodiac, but regardless, orders opened up back in April, and Ford is even building dedicated Mach-E stores in the country. Now, the automaker has announced that the very first Chinese Ford Mustang Mach-E has rolled off the assembly line in Chongqing.

In addition to marking the start of Chinese Ford Mustang Mach-E production, FoMoCo made a few other announcements regarding the EV crossover that should be of interest to customers in that country. Orders are officially open for Standard Range rear-wheel drive, Long Range rear-wheel drive, Premium, Mustang Mach-E GT, and First Edition models, for starters.

Those that place a deposit for a new Mach-E and sign their purchase contract before December 31st, 2021, will receive a host of additional benefits including roadside assistance, a vehicle and battery system warranty, a referral bonus, and a retail finance and replacement plan. First Edition buyers will also get a custom, limited-edition gift package to boot.

The Chinese Long Range rear-wheel drive Mach-E can achieve a maximum range of 619 kilometers (385 miles) on the China light-duty vehicle test cycle (CLTC). The Mustang Mach-E GT, on the other hand, produces 359 kW (481 horsepower) and 860 Nm (634 pound-feet) of torque, which can propel it from 0-100 kilometers-per-hour (62 miles-per-hour) in 3.65 seconds.

Pricing for the Chinese Mach-E starts out at 265,000 RMB ($40,495 USD) for the Standard Range Base RWD model, 309,900 RMB ($47,356) for the Extended Range Premium RWD, 339,900 RMB ($51,940) for the Extended Range Premium AWD, and 379,900 RMB ($58,053) for the Mach-E GT First Edition, which is available in Grabber Blue.

    After living in China for 15 years, this is not the kind of vehicle that the chinese public are interested is, especially chinese women, which have a huge decision making and money handling capacity. Ford could have done better with their initial EV investment, then making a vehicle like this, which has a nitch market, and requires Ford to push it throughout the world to meet sales targets and return on investments since they cannot do that in North America.

      Can you give more insight why this is not the kind of vehicle Chinese like? I thought they were into big American cars like Buick, but that was 10-15 years ago. Do they not like Crossovers?
