Ford technically started Mustang Mach-E deliveries in December, but some drivers will have to wait much longer. Electrek at learned that Ford has delayed several hundred deliveries of the electric crossover for up to a month for “additional quality checks.” The brand did not say what problems could have caused the checks, but said it wanted to be sure the electric vehicle met the quality levels that buyers “expect and deserve.”
The move comes just weeks after Ford EV frontman Darren Palmer blew up quality issues at Tesla. He promised the Mustang Mach-E would avoid the core production and manufacturing issues that plagued Tesla EVs, like loose bumpers and stuck door handles. Some electric vehicles in the industry have had reliability issues, including power outages.
