2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Production Up Sharply In April

The Ford Mustang Mach-E has faced considerable demand since its launch, to the point where The Blue Oval has struggled to keep up amid various supply chain shortages and rising commodities prices. The automaker paused production at the Cuautitlan Assembly plant early this year as it works to expand its capacity in that regard over the coming years, and as a result, built a grand total of zero Mach-Es in January. However, FoMoCo turned things around by producing 360 EV crossovers in February and 7,381 in March, but 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E production really picked up in April, according to the automaker’s most recent sales report.

Last month, 11,858 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E crossovers rolled off the assembly line at the Cuautitlan plant, which is a significant 4,477 more than March, as well as a month-over-month increase of nearly 61 percent. That total also means that Ford has built 19,599 Mach-Es in the first four months of the year, though given the quick rise in numbers, that figure should grow quickly moving forward.

The benefits of this ramp up are numerous, aside from simply making the Mach-E easier to find on dealer lots. Earlier this month, Ford dropped Mach-E prices following multiple increases – making it more competitive with its main rival, the Tesla Model Y – and rolled out a new lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) battery pack in its standard range models, which is less expensive to produce.

Now, the cheapest Mach-E is less expensive than the most affordable Model Y, though there are other considerations – including range and performance – shoppers will consider. Regardless, with production quickly ramping up and a supply chain that continues to stabilize following years of issues, prices look poised to continue to fall moving forward.

    Less expensive batteries, Material cost saving, higher production & lower sales price with tax incentives. sounds very positive.

    Comparing apples to apples for stats and features, the premium AWD extended range compares to the Model Y AWD. Tesla has a $9K price advantage without IRA and $13.5K with IRA. Ford need to treat this seriously and do something to mitigate this advantage or watch inventory pile up in dealer lots while Tesla grabs market share. Lower prices $2K more for Select and offer 0% for 72 month financing for all Mach E.

    The real problem here is Ford has to sell all their EV’s at less than it costs them to make them. A lot less. Farley even admitted that it will take many years to turn profitable, if ever. So, regardless of what kind of low MSRP they slap on them just to move them, they are nowhere near being able to compete with Tesla.

    You are not competing when selling at a loss, so it makes no sense to compare MSRP’s of Model Y with Mach-E. The Mach-E MSRP is lower than Model Y because buyers recognize the Model Y is far superior and are not willing to pay Model Y prices for a Mach-E.
