I received my Mach E X last Tuesday. The car is perfect. It drives perfect. It has zero quality issues that need to go back to dealer for. It charges much faster than my Bolt on 240. It wants to be driven swiftly. And it is fun. Don't sweat it. They have their reasons to delay and you should appreciate them if it saves you a trip to the dealer post delivery

You win some kind of prize - you are the first forum member to report receiving the Mach E as far as I can tell!

This deserves its own thread! Congrats!

There is a "Produced" status.
only the internal system, not with the VIN tracker
Yep. The customer has total access. The customer's customer just has access to whatever info is made available on the public side.

Photos? Do you know what the reason for the delay is? Did your car get fixed....or is this a hoax?

And have they tried to DCFC charge it yet? We're all very curious how that's working on an actual production car, how long it's taking, and what power levels are being achieved!

I received word today that the stop-ship was lifted as of this morning. Do not know the specific issue, but I have to believe it was a software issue. Not unprecedented for Ford to do these kind of holds. My 2019 Nautilus sat for quite a while before finally being allowed to ship.

Was that an email from Ford? Anything you can share here?

Not for those in the general population, there is not. Ford's own tracking leaves a lot to be desired. I figured I'd at least have something similar to Domino's tracking technology. I don't need to know each person's name who is working on my car, but it would be cool if they could scan in a QR or bar code as each car comes into each different work station to let the consumer know what step your car is at.

Currently, Ford's Public Vehicle Tracking offers... Order Confirmed, Scheduled for Production (which they then added a date, which means it is completed, but there's no way of knowing that from the information they provide), built, shipped and delivery.

It's so confusing that most of the terminology they've used so far has actually meant what the general public would assume it means. Scheduled for Production means to me that it will get started this week, to Ford it means it's completed that day.

Built to me means it's completely assembled, and awaiting shipment. To Ford, I'm assuming here because mine hasn't gotten there yet despite being "done" for 8 days; built means shipping has begun I guess.

Shipped to me means the date it started shipping, like the day a regular package arrives at UPS and gets a tracking number. I guess to Ford that means the day it arrives at your dealership. I guess delivery to Ford means you've taken delivery and it's now yours. Overall it looks like Ford is checking things off as they complete that step rather than ever letting you know when they begin the process, which to me defeats the purpose of a tracking app. If I wanted to be misled by a tracking number I'd send more packages with FedEx or USPS and watch their tracking numbers do nothing for several days and then watch it say delivery attempt failed, please call customer service.

I think it would be a lot to the consumer to be able to know exactly when your car starts going down the assembly line. I'd love to know on X day that my car has gone to the body shop, or paint, or interior, finishing, etc. I know it's a much smaller scale but when I order a pizza from Domino's I know who started preparing my pizza, when it went into the oven, when it's being boxed, and which delivery driver has taken it and often can track the delivery vehicle on a map. I'm not asking for all of that, but something better than the current system would be very much appreciated.

There is not a conveyor belt that runs from the plant to your dealer; it is effectively a "batch processing" system that moves lots of cars to intermediate locations where they are separated and batched to a destination closer to your dealer. Cars have to go on a railroad car carrier. That carrier has to be pulled down the track by one or more locomotives. There is not an infinite supply of either. Empty car carriers and locomotives have to be available in mexico in order for the cars to be loaded up and "actually" shipped. According to my dealer the Ford database is listing my car as being on a car carrier that is parked near the plant awaiting a locomotive to take it along the first leg of it's > 3000 mile journey. Cars built after mine are in the parking lot awaiting an empty car carrier to arrive so that they can loaded.

And to that effect Ford VV is still showing a stop ship for at least my MME.

Yeah I don't think the stop ship has been lifted for all cars: only for cars that have been inspected/fixed.
