  1. "Beginning in 2019, five more models will start local production in China, including Ford’s first pure electric SUV globally, to better meet the demands of Chinese customers. By the end of 2019, all new Ford vehicles sold in China will have 4G LTE connectivity, increasing Ford’s edge over the market’s fierce competition. And in order to support this ambitious growth, Ford will rapidly improve its engineering and R&D capabilities in China." https://www.at.ford.com/en/homepage/news-and-clipsheet/news/2019/3/2019-changan-ford-dealer-conference-aims-to-win-the-future-toget.html Mach E starts production by the end of the year in China. Debut must be soon...
  2. Ford China released that the Mach E starts production by the end of THIS year. So it needs to be shown off pretty soon.

    Ford has plenty of open land in SE Michigan is it needs to build a autonomous conversion center plant.

    Ford Otosan-Commercial Vehicles

    Of course, they produced over 375,000 units of the Transit family.

    So although Ford Otosan has the capacity for 15,000 heavy trucks, they only produced just than 5,800 last year. About 1,400 units were exported from Turkey.
  6. Im guessing you just mean in the US? Because globally its the Excelle GT/XT
  7. China also produces the Edge.

    They might have sold that many in the US that year, but not in Brazil.

    Joe, It was never ever anywhere that close. Given the previous sales of the plant, that was likely the capacity of the entire plant for Fiesta, Cargo I and II, and F-Series. Ford even ended F-Series production at the plant for around 3 years before bringing it back around 2014.

    F-Series sales in Brazil totaled 2,389 units and 690 units in Argentina. In addition, the plant produces the Cargo (both generations) and the Fiesta: Cargo II sales totaled 3,964 units in Brazil and 1,973 units in Argentina. Cargo I sales totaled 2,953 units in Brazil and 625 in Argentina. Fiesta sales totaled 16,069 units in Brazil and 14,269 in Argentina. None of this is something to write home about. And just to show you how bad that plant had fallen: Fiesta sold over 100,000 units in Brazil/Argentina in 2005! The 170k unit figure is likely the plant's total capacity.

    Ford Announces Next 5 Models

    I could also see them holding the Mach E and doing the Escape hybrid in DC and then the normal Escape in NY. Kind of what they did with the Explorer.

    It's an educated guess. I believe the original escape Hybrid was shown in DC too, so it kinda makes sense.
