Ford Will Build Another EV Based On The Mach-E In Mexico

Ford’s first phase of North American electric vehicle production includes Kansas City and Dearborn plants, along with Oakville, Ontario, and Cuautitlan, Mexico.


  • The Ford E-Transit Will Be Built At Kansas City Assembly Plant

  • This is part of Ford’s $3.2 billion EV manufacturing footprint.

  • Ford’s invested $11.5 billion in electrification through 2022.

  • The E-Transit arrives in late 2021. The electric F-150 is planned for mid-2022.


We are only weeks away from Ford unleashing the Mustang Mach-E electric SUV and although there’s been much said about the vehicle, it’s only a small part in Ford’s huge EV plans. They’ve just announced that the E-Transit will be assembled at its Kansas City Assembly Plant.

While this is good news in every respect, Ford has also revealed that they will produce an additional electrified vehicle at the Cuautitlan, Mexico plant where the Mustang Mach-E is currently being assembled. There are no further details on this vehicle other than it will share the Mach-E’s platform.

The Ford E-Transit will be fully introduced this Thursday is expected to hit the road in late 2021. This commercial electric vehicle has potential for serious volume and, although it hasn’t been yet said, could spin off various passenger versions.

Speaking of volume, Ford hopes that the electric F-150 will literally take off. And it looks like it will as they will be increasing production plans by a full 50% and will add an extra 200 jobs to the previously planned 300.
