Learned that Ford has delayed hundreds of deliveries of the electrical crossover for “additional quality checks” by up to a month.
The brand didn’t elaborate on what issues might have caused the review, but said it wanted to make sure the EV met the quality levels that buyers “expect and deserve”.
The move comes just a few weeks after Ford EV boss Darren Palmer had quality problems at Tesla. He vowed the Mustang Mach-E would avoid basic production and manufacturing problems that plagued Tesla electric vehicles, such as loose bumpers and stuck door handles.
Some electric vehicles across the industry have had general reliability issues, including electrical failures.
This doesn’t guarantee it’s obvious that Ford wants to make a great first impression.
A successful debut for the first batch could not only ensure healthy sales but also attract potential buyers competing for electric vehicles who are worried about their ride may spend more time in the store than on the road.
