    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    My current car is a Kuga which was made in Valencia. If I remember correctly they have only 1 production line making Kuga, Mondeo and a couple of other models

    Dutch people that ordered a Mach-E?

    Nobody has, except Ford employees working on the car, so you are not alone

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    Just had 3 year service it cost just a little under £400 plus £145 road tax. 4 year service is bigger so will cost more plus road tax so in 2 years it could cost me almost £1,000. Most EV's service intervals are 2 years mostly so my costs would be £0

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    I think people are relying on what their dealers say. I have not had any contact from my nominated dealer at all during this process, all my contact has been with Ford UK. Perhaps it would be better to speak to Ford.fr instead

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    He still announced deliveries for late 2020. I am sorry but this part of your earler post seems to be different that what you are saying above

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    I have said on this forum in various chats that until Ford informed me of a delay in the delivery of my MME then I would expect it before Christmas. Well Ford did indeed inform me that my car would be delayed until early 2021. Now that date can be interpreted many ways. Jan, Feb,Mar. I am now...

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    Send them to mexico. If we are to believe the rumours 60% of 50,000 are coming to EUROPE, that's 30,000. How convenient. When up and running if the production line can make 1,000 a day, that's 4 and a bit weeks production. Could still get to us this year 🤞🤞 Wishful thinking lol

    Mach-E’s Cuautitlan Plant Began Preparing for May 18 Re-Open Last Week

    When you check in with your contact in Mexico perhaps you could ask him if he knows the answer to this poser. We have seen pictures on this forum of numerous preproduction cars on the road testing. Presumably these are road legal. Ford have said that they are really impressed with the quality. I...

    This bothers me...

    Ford are warranting the battery pack for 8 years/100,000 miles ( I think) so what you are saying is that if the battery packs fails within that period then Ford wont be able to replace modules or whole pack. What do you expect them to do, give you a new car?

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    They could always make 8000 or so then hire their own ship. Wouldn't have to worry about schedules then.

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    Now now chaps, no need to get bitchy. It is what it is. Look at it this way, if those of you in the US get yours before we do on this side of the pond then you can 1. wax lyrical about how good the car is and tell us what to expect and 2. iron out the initial snags se we get perfect cars. Thanks...

    Ford Announces Mach-E European Deliveries Delayed Until Early 2021 (No Delays For US Customers)

    The article you quoted is over 4 months old. I would think that if Ford were going to take the stance you are suggesting then they wouldn't have made the MME available in the UK from the start. I would be appalled if they did that now. I have been a Ford driver for 30+ years so if they suddenly...

    This bothers me...

    There is an interview on you tube by Jalopnik with a Ford engineer who says that the battery pack can be removed from the car and then any faulty battery array can be replaced as needed with out replacing the whole battery pack. Depending on the set up of the electronics, which presumably can...

    Delivery in Q1

    Smear campaign by competition. Anonymous source, casts a bit of doubt. I am expecting the worst ( delivery in 2021) but hoping for the best ( delivery before Christmas). Until I hear from FORD with a build/delivery date for MY car, the latter rules

    Interior colour in Europe

    Black is good. RWD comes with 'light' headliner as opposed to the AWD 'dark' headliner so does that mean its grey?
