2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Luggage Test | Escape for the weekend
Ford's electric gem proves its crossover prowess
Rest assured, there's a lot more coming down the pipe from Autoblog about the exceptional 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. As we prep those pieces, however, here's a quick...
Ford Is Giving Mach-E Buyers Lease Extensions
Ford is offering lease extensions to current customers looking to buy time until the arrival of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E later this year. As a result, those with a current Ford lease could have a good reason to wait for the...
FORD TO FULLY IMMERSE THE MUSTANG MACH-E WITH AN ONLINE BUYING PROCESS
If we look at zero-emissions cars as the modernization of the everyday car, then we can look at the push towards online sales as the modernization of the dealership experience. For the longest of times, the dealership...

"The vehicle, which will be designed and engineered by Ford in Cologne-Merkenich, will add another compelling nameplate to its own all-electric Mustang Mach-E, which will be introduced in 2021."
The way that was written it sounded almost like they were going to add another model to the Mustang...
It's not just Ford but FCA just hit fresh 52 week lows too. The transition to EVs is going to be messy to the bottom line of many automakers and then of course the macro issues like coronavirus will hit everyone. I still think Ford is good in the long term but it will take a while.
Ford created this map showing the number of Mach-E orders by dealer with the most popular paint color choices by state.
I have a hard time differentiating between the different gray/silver choices., which just goes to show you... we need MORE color choices that are not part of the GRAYscale!
Good pics! You make a good point about the PR benefit for providing it via OTA update. Also my guess is if they wanted to launch with it, it would have had to been ready to demonstrate by now. This gives them almost another year to make sure it's fully baked before they have to show it in action.
Agree with this. They aren't losing money on each vehicle sold but I doubt all the development costs will be recouped from the first Mach-E sold. It's all wrapped up in Ford's EV plans for the future so it's impossible to carve out the total cost of the Mach-E, with the creation of Team Edison...
Definitely. If Ford is moving to all EV like everyone else, they will need Ford Performance to get heavily involved in EVs. I just hope Team Edison is already working closely with them to push the limits of performance starting with Mach-E.
The big question is if (and which) new features will be FREE
This is my fear too despite what the OP posted that there will be no cost for OTA updates. I remember reading somewhere that Ford is going to mimic Tesla's model and if this this the directly it is slowly moving towards (a paid one...
So it sounds like they can't even rate cars for safety if they are still in the pre-production phase I assume because changes are and can still be made. If that's the case I would think we won't see it rated until end of the year earliest?
