The 27,816 Mach-E Mustangs produced at the Mexican plant exceeded the 26,089 gasoline Mustangs that rolled off the lines of the Flat Rock, Michigan plant.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E, the first electric SUV of the American house, has surpassed its thermal “cousin” in terms of production volumes. According to when communicated by the Blue Oval, in the first five months of 2021, the units produced of the Mustang Mach-E have in fact exceeded those of the thermal counterpart. Specifically, we are talking about 27,816 Mustang Mach-e assembled at the Mexican plant in Cuautitlan in the period between January and May, against the 26,089 thermal Mustangs that came out of the lines of the Flat Rock, Michigan plant. The American house, in this context of the chip crisis, preferred to give priority to recent models such as the Mach-E, so production also benefited from it.
The reasons for the success
Ford is investing heavily in electric mobility. It is no coincidence that Jim Farley, CEO of the house, in the new industrial plan has provided allocations for 30 billion dollars, revising the previous indications upwards by eight billion. The goal, to be achieved by 2030, is to bring electric power to an overall share of 40% of sales. In these first five months, the Ford Mustang Mach-E took the top spot in the Norwegian sales chart and sold 10,510 units in America. It is an excellent result achieved in the country with stars and stripes, even if lower than that of the thermal counterpart, which sold 29,710 pieces. Overall, however, the demand for the Mustang Mach-E: “It’s much stronger than we expected, so we’re out of stock,” Farley said.
