Has anyone seen an update on adding a receiver hitch for bike racks? I’ve scoured but no actual confirmation on this.
I think you're going to have to wait for Mach-Es to be delivered to consumers so that the aftermarket can get their hands on one to see if it is possible.

I did but I took those as possibilities not official so I wondered if there was anything certain
You will not see anything official from aftermarket suppliers before the cars are released. They don't have earlier access to the vehicles than anyone else. Even after they're released, it will likely be a little while before they can get their hands on one to see what's possible.

Agreed. In fact I spoke with the folks at Torklift April. They basically offered us that the first person to bring in a Mach E would get a free hitch because that first vehicle would be used to develop the hitch everyone else would need. I'd jump on that but Kent, WA is a long drive from the east coast for a trailer hitch.

Ah but think of the write up on the forums here of your epic cross country road trip in a Mach-E!

Yeah, I just saw that. Calling it an SUV was already a stretch. Now it’s just silly.

At least they're sticking with the tow hitch being available in Europe. That should mean that there are mounting points that aftermarket options in the US can use.
