Ford to move planned electric auto production to Mexico from MI

07 December 2017, 09:20 | Hattie Nash

Ford Motor Company says it will shift future production of a forthcoming electric vehicle to Mexico instead of building it at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in MI as it had planned. That vehicle will now be made at an existing Mexico facility. "It's not like they're not putting money into the U.S".

Ford still plans to begin to build the battery-electric crossover in summer 2020, but it will be assembled at its plant in Cuautitlan instead of Flat Rock, according to an internal memo obtained by Automotive News. It scrapped plans for a new small vehicle plant in Mexico because demand for them is so weak, not to shift any manufacturing back to the U.S. GM plans to launch its automated driving services with a heavily modified Chevrolet Bolt EV, demonstrated last week on the streets of San Francisco. The autonomous vehicle is expected to debut in 2021. Mark Truby, the company's communications chief, said in an email to Bloomberg that Ford is investing an additional $200 million and adding 150 jobs as part of the plan.

A Little Bit Easier! Apple Officially Launches Apple Pay Cash
In June 2016, Apple Pay users gained the ability to make cash withdrawals from Bank of America ATMs using their iPhones. Sending and receiving money from friends and family is now secure, faster and more convenient than ever with Apple Pay.

The company, along with every other automaker, is making a major push into self-driving vehicle technology. Since it's cheaper to produce cars in Mexico, it makes sense to build the electric SUV there.

Ford will build its next generation all-electric vehicle in Mexico, rather than at the plant in MI where it promised to build it. So now we're back to making cars in Mexico?

European Union sues Czechs, Hungary, Poland over refugee quotas
If the member state still refuses to comply, the Commission may then decide to refer the case to the Court of Justice. A relocation plan was launched by the European Union in 2015 in response to a large influx of migrants and refugees.

"Automakers have been out of the line of fire of late with so many other issues brewing in D.C.", Krebs said, adding that the impact of the president's planned changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement represents an "unknown" for Ford as it shifts the electric SUV to Mexico. The company's software provides services useful to autonomous ride-hailing businesses, including networked data streams between vehicles and operators. Ford's autonomous business will "serve leading companies, such as Lyft, in the movement of people and goods".
