The only news here, if it is news, is the 270,000 now includes China. 200,000 was US and Europe.

The only other person who has lied to me more than Jim Farley is my high school ex.

Seriously, this guy just grabs his phone or hops on an interview and says a bunch of vague promises to keep cars moving off the lot ... then backs up none of it.

IDK how people don't find him just as annoying as Elon.

To be fair, he is trying to compete with Elon.

And to achieve that bright future Ford is planning to lay off 8000 employees.
https://news.yahoo.com/ford-plans-lay-off-8-230054227.html

"Ford’s plans come after President Biden, frustrated with the demise of his sweeping legislative agenda aimed at cutting greenhouse-gas emissions and preparing vulnerable communities for natural disasters, claimed the U.S. is in a climate “emergency” Wednesday."

I'm glad the emergency Wednesday is over. 😅

Here in NorCal every other car is a Tesla. Hence the MME is a nice change. Hopefully it will stay that way for now..
