Buyers of Ford Mustang Mach-E, one of the most anticipated electric vehicles of the year 2021, will have to wait longer than expected for deliveries. Buyers will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the new EV crossover as the car manufacturer has been hit by a stop-sale order. The reason why Ford Mustang has been hit by the order is something that the company is not talking about. The Dearborn-based company only said that it is conducting some additional quality checks. However, it stayed clear of answering questions about the order.
“Mustang is committed to delivering the best quality of vehicles to its customers and this is why we are doing some additional quality checks. These quality checks are being conducted on hundreds of Mach-E models that were built before dealer shipments started,” a spokesperson of the company said. “As part of the quality check, Ford Mustang doing everything to ensure that customers get the quality they expect and deserve.” Experts believe that delaying deliveries is the right if Ford Mustang wants to fix certain things as it will help the company better compete with electric vehicles of Tesla.
For the uninitiated, Mustang Mach-E is currently the second most costly sport utility vehicle with its price starting at USD 42,895. This is excluding the destination charge. But the MSRP of the electric vehicle will come down to very completive levels because of the potential savings which include USD 7,500 federal tax. Mach-E is being assembled at the Mexico plant and has been received some good reviews in comparison to its rival – the Model Y. However, the Mustang Mach-E is not the only vehicle of the company that is facing quality-related problems at launch. Ford faced some trouble with Lincoln Aviator and Explorer. Some early productions of the F-150 too have been stopped from delivery and are being repaired at the Kansas City and Dearborn plants.
