The Ford Authority Take

Ford Mustang Mach-E sales trailed the mainstream electric vehicle segment during Q1 2022 as a result of constrained production and limited availability. Currently, FoMoCo is unable to produce more units of the Mach-E due to the aforementioned circumstances, however, the automaker is in the process of building a handful of new battery plants to help increase production rates. In fact, The Blue Oval announced its goal of increasing Mach-E production to 200,000 units annually by 2023, while doubling Mach-E battery supply by that same year.

It is also worth noting that Ford’s plan to vastly increase Mach-E production followed as a result of the automaker canceling plans to build all-electric versions of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico – where the Mach-E is also built – to better utilize that plant’s capacity solely for the Mach-E. As a result, the Explorer EV and Aviator EV have now been pushed back to late 2024 rather than 2023 as originally planned.

    How can Ford sell vehicles when there’s very limited inventory on dealer lots. Not everyone wants to order a vehicle and then wait months for it’s arrival. This certainly applies to the Mach E, Broncos and especially the Maverick. Then customers considering purchasing an S550 Mustang are somewhat stuck waiting on the new S650 and is it worth the wait. It seems like Ford skipped over the 2022 models with so few available which makes me wonder other than the new Lightning EV, Raptor R and S650 Mustang. What’s in store from Ford for their 2023 lineup.

    1. Marc

      I’m with you. And all the dealer markups
      Seen 2 Mach E mustangs both were marked up $20k over msrp.
      It’s either order and WAIT, or pay far over MSRP. No way.

    2. Bob Tasa

      I am with you Don. We have never had this issue before in HISTORY of American car sales. Ford, like others, have outsourced everything until there was no actual company left. Now they need to ramp up production to fill demand and can’t.

  2. Joe

    Middle America can’t afford the $829.00 per month which is the average monthly payment for a Mach E. They will not get to 200K, and with everyone one trying to build EVs, watch material prices sky rocket and push them farther out of reach.

  3. Bob Tasa

    You want the Mach E to sell? Well what does it cost? Can you buy it at MSRP? What is MSRP anyway? I agree with Joe is right, 829 a month is out of control. Make a Maverick EV with LFP batteries for 30K without a 10K to 30K markup and you will have to build more factories, hire more people and have a lot of new Ford converts. Ford’s biggest problem, they can not build enough vehicles fast enough at a good price point. I would have bought a gas Maverick if you could buy one and if it didn’t cost as much as a Ford Ranger.

    I am saving my money ( at higher interest rates ) and waiting for the recession to come. By then I will have more money to spend, on a cheaper vehicle, because there should be plenty of them available by then.
