Something like this would normally be held in person, but since the pandemic ... you know the rest. Dealers won’t be able to physically interact with the car, but this teleconference will allow the Mach-E to stay on schedule. As we know, U.S. deliveries, at least, will still be on time. The only one you can’t get, as far as we’ve heard, is the First Edition, which is sold-out.

When the Ford Mustang Mach-E arrives later this year, new owners will need to sort out their charging situation. Whether charging takes place at one of the 13,500 charging stations that are part of the FordPass Charging Network or the automaker's Connected Charge Station, the Blue Oval plans to have owners covered.

Ford tapped Amazon Home Services to offer installation services. Through the online retail giant, owners can view estimates for installation and book a licensed electrician to install the wall box at home. Amazon will extend its services to also help future owners install a 240-volt outlet for the standard charging cable (Level 2 charging) that comes with the Mustang Mach-E.

Good guy Ford will further sweeten the deal for new owners of the electric SUV. The automaker said each new Mustang Mach-E owner will receive 250 kilowatt-hours worth of free charging at stations that are part of the FordPass network.

1967 Mustang Is the Perfect Blueprint for a Coyote Swap

  1967 Mustang Is the Perfect Blueprint for a Coyote Swap Wicked Fabrication has become the go-to shop for late-model Coyote V-8 swaps, and Byron Tudor’s 1967 Mustang is the latest example.The good thing we speak of is the 1967 coupe that was given to Byron by his girlfriend's sister, Holly. Holly had driven the plain white coupe for a number of years before parking it in the late '90s due to its declining condition and concerns regarding reliability. After having it sit in her garage for nearly 20 years and concluding she was unlikely to get it back on the road, Holly offered it to Byron—free of charge. It was important to Holly that her Mustang go to a good home.

Ford doesn't actually own the charger network, but it will provide free access to 13,500 stations across the US, including Electrify America stations. After the freebies, owners will need to pay standard charging rates, but they won't need to worry about membership fees or anything of the like.
