Exciting times for the Mach-E community as the first US deliveries are happening. A couple weeks ago some trailers were seen moving them around to dealers (more here) and early this week Ford has been handing over the keys! This is one of those owners...

While at the same time Ford dealerships are still waiting to get demos they were told they would get back in early December last month. I suspect Ford is delivering a few of them to select dealerships for PR. There are still significant delays with Ford as the Mach-E's are piling up in the Mexico plant parking lot (saw an aerial shot somewhere last week) while they still verify (certify?) the production quality of those vehicles coming off the line. Make sense because if a problem is found then they don't have to issue a recall.

But where are the Broncos??? Ford is the same as it ever was, one step forward 3 steps backwards.
Not sure I follow. Ford revealed the Mach-E in Nov 2019 and started delivering in Dec 2020 (during a pandemic). Bronco was revealed July 2020 and, yes, they originally indicated it would be in production by now (technically it is, just limited). But again, this is during a pandemic, a major microchip shortage and a parts shortage. It's only been one year since the Bronco was revealed. Considering everything that's going on, these delays are not a surprise, nor are they exclusive to Ford. Just look at Rivian. We're coming up on three years this November since they revealed. These are some unprecendanted times and these companies, not just the auto manufactures but ALL their supply partners, need to and have been making adjustments. Seems only fair to expect the consumers to also adjust accordingly.
