Ford Mustang Mach-E Production Delayed Due to Chip Shortage

The global chip continues to throw wrenches in Ford’s production plans

  • Deliveries will now be delayed by at least six weeks.

  • Even Mach-Es produced in July will be held back.

  • Ford will offer order holders an extra 250 kWh of complimentary charging.

The perfect storm of high demand for new vehicles and parts unavailability continues to ravage automaker production plans. Ford had already slowed Mustang Mach-E output in July but now order holders, not to mention potential buyers, will need to wait a long time to take delivery of their new EV.

The global chip shortage has not put a stop to Mach-E production, in this case. Rather, the vehicles are assembled but incomplete due to missing microchips. Ford has informed hopeful Mustang Mach-E owners that delivery delays have been extended by at least six weeks, according to insideevs. As a sign of appreciation, Ford will offer an extra 250 kWh of complimentary charging on top of the already included 250 kWh.

Volvo has not been spared as it will halt production at its Swedish plant due to the same chip issue. The hope is that output will return to normal before the end of the week.

“Production at Torslanda will be paused temporarily from this evening due to a material shortage linked with the semiconductor issue,” Volvo said as reported by Automotive News Europe.
