150,000th Ford Mustang Mach-E Rolls Off Assembly Line

Launched back in 2020 as a 2021 model year vehicle, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is at the forefront of The Blue Oval’s push toward an all-electric future. Extremely high demand has made the electric ponified crossover a hot seller, with new units of the Mustang Mach-E flying off dealer lots in an average of just 10 days in September 2022. The Mach-E also gained market share in the third quarter of 2022, placing fourth in its competitive segment, while also ranked third in new EV registrations. Now, The Blue Oval announced that it has officially produced the 150,000th example of the Mustang Mach-E.

Every single one of the 150,000 Ford Mustang Mach-E crossovers on the road today were built at the Ford Cuautitlán plant in Mexico. With this milestone achievement, Ford is that much closer to its goal of producing 600,000 electric vehicles by the end of 2023. In fact, The Blue Oval plans to have two million EVs on the road by 2026, thanks in part to recent investments in the automaker’s EV efforts.

The Mustang Mach-E appeals to first-time Ford owners – approximately 73.3 percent of the crossover’s customers in the U.S. are brand new to the automaker. It has also proved popular among millennials, with three in ten Mustang Mach-E owners belonging to the millennial generation in the U.S., while almost half of Mach-E owners in China are between the ages of 27 and 37.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E has also been awarded a few accolades since its introduction. It has been praised for its exemplary safety in a series of crash tests by the NTHSA, proving that it holds up quite well in a variety of impacts. However, while Consumer Reports recognized the EV crossover as one of its recommended cars in 2021, the publication recently stripped the Mustang Mach-E from its recommendations, citing reliability concerns.

    LoL. I misread the subhed as “poonified” and thought for a moment, is that even a thing?

    My humorous misread aside, I think the article is wrong about Ford Mex being the exclusive production location of Mach-E.

    To wit, from Ford’s own press release:

    “Chongqing, China, Oct. 18, 2021 – The first Mustang Mach-E manufactured in China officially rolled off the assembly line today. Manufactured at Changan Ford’s manufacturing plant in Chongqing, the locally-produced Mach-E will be available for delivery to customers in China by year-end, providing them with the driving pleasure associated with the electric SUV.”

      Right. If 150k have actually been built in Mexico, curious how many more were built in China.

    OK doing some math here, about 46,000 sold in the US and the rest have been sold around the world. Well done Ford. Now can you make a cheap Maverick EV for under 40k total and have factories that can produce them in quantity? Heck can you even make the current Maverick in quantity.

      Do they have plant capacity to produce them? Yes they do.

      Can they get the sub components to do so? No they can’t.

      Would they like to have the components to produce them? Are they working hard toward that end? You betcha.

      Does that change reality? Nope.

      After 2 years it’s not that hard to understand.

    Consumer Reports recently dropped the MachE due to the many quality issues it has. My local dealer already bought back two of them. Meanwhile 50,000 Super Duty orders were placed on the first day alone.

      Please name the dealer. I want to call them to see if this is true.

        It is true, and I will not call them out as they are good people and don’t need to get punished by corporate. They also had one Lightning come back for quality issues. Our salesman quietly told us to stay away from EVs if we want long term reliability.

        The quality issues with EVs at Ford are very public, Consumer Reports recently dropped the MachE it was so bad.

          More likely your salesman did what salesman do, he promoted what he had available to sell.

          Why would corporate hassle a dealer for buying back vehicles (if that ever happened)? Dealers do that all the time, it’s called the used car business.

          If there were problems with the vehicles, forcing a dealer to buyback, believe me, the principal would be on the horn to Ford to get things sorted the second hand would haven’t yet begun to move in a stopwatch.

          It’s also not unheard of for corporate to ask dealers to let them know of problems so Ford itself can buy back and tear down for analysis (this was recently demonstrated by Ford where they were looking for vehicles with the leaking fuel injector problems.)

            Nothing is available new, order only. We had many options when ordering. Where have you been?

      I’m 65 years old and see things thru a different prism. Those words written, it really ticked me off that 150,000 EV Mustangs have been produced, of which I’d estimate 96% were toys for wealthy people to play with. Our last new car buy was 10 years ago … we wanted a Maverick XL Hybrid … no dice for the ’21 model year, same story for the ’23 model the dealer really didn’t do their job, we’d waited for a ’23, and the turd didn’t get the order done in time. Farley’s playing to the ego community for EV’s have cost him more lost sales than he will ever know. 150,000 Middle Class Maverick customers would have been more happy than that 96% whose bought an EV Stang to play with and park in their toy box garage. MY wife has Multiple Sclerosis, we needed that Maverick XL last year, we need a vehicle that can haul a wheel chair and or needs, the Maverick can do that. But Farley, don’t worry Hyundai fould one that will work for us, and on 6 days, not 6 months in can be under our car port.

        96% really? Seriously? Is your prisim really a statistical crystal ball?

        Why didn’t you go for broke and make it like 96.6 or 96.8%?

        That decimal point would add so much authority to your ideologically driven SWAG.

    Really Ford ? You’re reporting 150,000 EV Stangs. I can think of 150,000 Maverick buyers who really needed their vehicles. Somebody’s Gotta Say It … the EV buyers I’d estimate 95% buy one as an toy, a toy to park in the toy box (lib garage) and brag about. Those Maverick customers … they are like me, middle class, needed a new vehicle (over 10 years since we bought a car) and can’t get the one we wanted, a Maverick XL, w/trailer hitch, all weather floor matts, and bed mat … nothing fancy … but no, Jim Farley has to play to the leftest who wants just another toy … at least 150,000 of them. As mentioned earlier I haven’t been able after two years to get either a Transit Connect nor a Maverick, but don’t worry your competition has plenty “in stock” that will fill the needs of a customer whose wife suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and needs a vehicle that can easily haul a wheel chain. Yeah Ford, there are actually people out there who operate an buy on need, not ego. If you think this is a fabrication, think again, it’s true, the local dealer botched our Transit Connect order we did in early July ’22 by forgetting to place the damn order, yeah Crossroads Ford of Dunn did that … and did nothing, they didn’t even make an attempt at getting a’22 Transit Connect nor our second choice a Maverick Hybrid like we actually need. I’m driving a ’13 C-Max Hybrid, I’m a Hybrid owner through an through, but that will change due to Farley’s miss- management of resources.

    Sorry to hear about your wife and your dealer dropping the ball on your order, but do you realize how crazy all the leftist lib communist talk sounds?

    Now it may just be a product of inarticulate frustration but if you really think some lib is trying to screw you by buying a man EV car and parking it in their garage, you do you need to sit down and question how you came to believe so much nonsense let alone write it.

    This is an impressive milestone for the whole amount of “Mach” (EV) already produced. I am pretty confident that figures will soar up ; due to global concern on global warming issues. Meanwhile I am helping Cuautitlan ‘ s assembly plant on assembly processes translation issues that ease procedures.
