Bad news for those in the market for the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Ford cannot deliver the fully electric SUV to the Netherlands this year. Business drivers therefore miss the more favorable addition percentage applicable this year.
The Dutch market introduction of the Ford Mustang Mach-E was planned for the end of this year, but Ford will not meet that deadline. A few months ago, the first reports surfaced that production was delayed, of course also because of the corona virus. Tweakers reported this morning that the Mustang Mach-E will definitely not come to the Netherlands before the end of this year and Ford Netherlands now confirms this news to AutoWeek. “In the United States we may just be able to deliver before the end of the year, but of course they have to ship to Europe from there. We can certainly say that it takes too long to get here before the end of the year. to be the year, “they say.
The delay is of course a disappointment especially for the business drivers with an order for a Mustang Mach-E. In 2021, the addition percentage will increase from 8 to 12 percent. Undoubtedly many hoped to be able to drive a Mustang Mach-E below the more favorable percentage, but that kite does not work. That can add up, if we look at the provisional prices for the Mustang Mach-E. Two months ago, there was already a lot of interest in the Mustang Mach-E, when the counter stood at 1,500 orders. This is likely to include many business drivers, although the importer states that a significant part of the orders also come from private individuals.
The question now arises: what does this mean for people who have already ordered the Mustang Mach-E, but want to abandon it because of the missing 8 percent addition? Ford Netherlands says it will probably be able to tell more about this later in a response to AutoWeek, but already indicates that the dealers will at least contact the relevant customers.
