Ford has announced that it is going to boost production of some of its most popular models, which includes the Mustang Mach-E, F-150 Lightning, Bronco Sport and Maverick.
“We have had a strong start to 2023 sales and we are moving to fast-track quality production,” said Kumar Galhotra, president, Ford Blue. “Increasing production benefits both our customers and our business.”
Ford has already started ramping up production of the Mustang Mach-E and it projects that it will build 210,000 units by the end of the year.
