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.
