Torklift is popular with Tesla owners in the Seattle area. They offer different hitch options with the Stealth hitch being specially popular. The product page doesn’t say which options are available but I assume it is the standard hitch.

Is there any information on what the Mach-E is rated for towing?
0 in the US, a copy of the owners manual is on the site somewhere.
I think I’ve read somewhere between 1400-1500 on EU versions

The next question becomes, if you get a hitch like this put on, and go to the dealer with a problem some time later, are they going to go out of their way to make it seem like you towed a boat and damaged things, voiding the warranty, when you really just put a bike rack on the back? I don't know that anyone here can really answer that other than Ford or the dealer, but that is the part that makes me the most nervous about one of these aftermarket hitches.

If you read the small manual that comes with the vehicle you will find that Ford does not recommend towing anything. To my surprise also, I thought that I could flat tow the Mach E behind an RV. NO......you can't do that either.
Damage to the motors may result. Only if you pop it on a dolly trailer.
Maybe things will change a bit later.
I would like to be able to take my bikes to the trails also.

1650 in the EU which is a joke when one considers the HP and torque on the vehicle.

How do these types of hitches work if you go with a Ford Options lease? Assuming it's a no go? Again, just looking to throw some bikes on the bike or maybe a hitch ski rack.

I would have to see it on the vehicle before I would consider purchasing it. Like you, @ajmartineau, I would just want to use it for a bike rack. My only concern is how it would look with the reverse light.

Options is not a lease. You own the car, so you can do what you want with it. It’s possible they could consider it “damage” and charge you for it if you turn it in, but I doubt it.

I believe the Mach E can pull a jet ski or two easily. I will look into it for the hitch to carry couple bikes myself. What Ford doesn't want for someone to pull more than 1000lbs of stuff.
Ford knows that in Europe customers want to pull something light going on vacation. Americans.... that is another story. We all here go big..... really big. It is our nature. We over do it all the time.
