Ford To Bump Mustang Mach-E Manufacturing To 270,000 A Yr

Ford introduced this week that it has constructed its 150,000th Mustang Mach-E at its Cuautitlán meeting plant in Mexico. That will appear to be small potatoes to some, particularly since Tesla says it plans to fabricate 20 million electrical automobiles a yr by the top of this decade. Nonetheless, gross sales of the Mach-E have made Ford the second bestselling electrical automobile model within the US.

The Mach-E isn’t just for North America, although. It’s offered in 37 nations, together with Venezuala, Brazil, and New Zealand. Actually, throughout a latest journey to Spain, I observed billboards promoting the automobile in Barcelona and once more within the Canary Islands. Who would have guessed you would purchase one in Tenerife?

The corporate says it’s accelerating Mustang Mach-E manufacturing and focusing on international annual manufacturing price of 270,000 as a part of its plan to scale to a price of 600,000 electrical automobiles yearly by the top of 2023 and a couple of million by 2026. The excellent news for EV advocates is that 8 in 10 Mustang Mach-E prospects within the US and 9 in 10 prospects in Europe have changed an inner combustion car with a Mustang Mach-E. Demand within the US is so robust that the automobiles stay in seller stock for under about 10 days earlier than discovering a purchaser.

“Once we put the horse on this Mustang, we knew we’d have skeptics. What we didn’t fairly know then was simply how fashionable this automobile would change into,” mentioned Darren Palmer, vice chairman for electrical automobiles at Ford’s EV division generally known as Ford Mannequin e. “I like seeing Mustang Mach-E automobiles on the street and speaking to prospects, and I’m seeing increasingly more of them.”

Development in international gross sales of the Mach-E is inflicting Ford to improve its Cuautitlán Stamping and Meeting Plant to fulfill the demand. A Ford insider instructed me the corporate initially anxious nobody would purchase the Mach-E, so the choice was made to construct it in Mexico and goal a modest run price of simply 30,000 automobiles a yr. The success of the automobile has been a welcome and nice shock for the corporate.

“The plant is buzzing,” says Deborah Manzano, Ford’s director of producing. “There’s a brand new battery line, new chassis line, further meeting line, we’re actually maxing out the area to make extra Mustang Mach-E automobiles. We most just lately added a brand new paint store, too. Nothing is standing nonetheless for lengthy!”

The Mustang Mach-E is a High-Rated Luxurious Electrical Automobile in line with Edmunds and has received a number of business awards. AAA named it the finest total automobile for 2022. That’s all effectively and good, however nothing could possibly be higher music to the ears of Ford executives than the sound of all these automobiles flying off seller’s tons nearly as quick as they’re unloaded from the vans that ship them.
