Ford does not intend to miss out on success for production issues. In the coming months, it will therefore greatly increase the production capacity of certain models, including its two electric stars, Mustang Mach E and F150 Lightning.
Without registering Tesla’s exceptional results, Ford’s flagship electric models, Mustang Mach E and F150 Lightning, are among the models registering strong demand in North America. In the camp of thermal models, there are also the Bronco Sport and Maverick.
The production capacity of all these models will therefore be increased, more than symbolically. For the Mustang Mach E electric SUV, the Cautitlan plant (Mexico) will evolve to be able to produce up to 210,000 units per year by the end of the year. Double the current numbers.
3 times more electric pick-ups
As for the pickup, Ford had clearly underestimated the appeal of American customers for an electric pickup. Accustomed to selling more than 600,000 F-Series per year (F150 plus the Heavy Duty F250 / F350 / F450 models), he had planned to produce 50,000 units of the electric version. After selling 15,617 last year, 3,600 units were produced in January and February, with longer waiting times for customers. Knowing that production was interrupted in mid-February due to problems detected on batteries, and should resume on March 13.
For the F150 Lightning, production will therefore triple to reach 150,000 units annually. This would already represent almost a quarter of the annual volumes of F150.
Ford is losing money on every Mustang Mach E sold due to rising material prices
