Ford Delays Launch of Bronco, Mustang Mach-E

May 20, 2020

Ford will be delaying the launch of the all-new electric Mustang Mach-E and the revived Bronco by several months, according to The Detroit News.

The company restarted North American production on May 18 and is attempting to minimize the lag caused by the closing of its facilities.

“We’re not going to do any additional delay to these launches beyond the impact of COVID-19 as a mechanism to conserve cash,” Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s head of product development and purchasing, told the Detroit News. “Given our inability to work in the assembly plants during the shelter-in-place restrictions, it will have an impact to program timing, in terms of launches. But we expect the launch delays to be commensurate with the duration of the shutdown period.”
