Ford just announced that they're reassessing when their North American plants can resume production.

Ford is not planning to restart their in the US, Canada or Mexico by March 30. At this rate it's looking like the Mach-E launch is getting delayed.

The following statement may be attributed to Kumar Galhotra, Ford’s president of North America:

Ford’s top priority is the health and safety of our employees, dealers, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. In light of various governments’ orders to stay and work from home, Ford is not planning to restart our plants in the U.S., Canada and Mexico on Monday, March 30 as originally hoped.

We are assessing various options and working with union leaders – including the United Auto Workers and Unifor – on the optimal timing for resuming vehicle production, keeping the well-being of our workforce top of mind.

We will provide additional updates as details are confirmed.

I never believed the 30 March date anyway. We’ll be lucky they get going in time for Trump’s Easter promise.

With the battery production from the LG Chem plant in Wroclaw, Poland
being the limiting factor in only about 50,000 Mach-E's for the first year,
here are a couple of encouraging articles on their mega-factories status.

It'a one thing that they're still producing batteries, which is surprising. But the fact that they're increasing productivity is insane.

Nearly every car manufacturer has a shortage of batteries, it is THE bottleneck, so when possible increase productivity;)

That's true they should be as productive as possible, but I wouldn't have expected that it would happen during a global pandemic lol

The Poles have a different history than we do of enduring really adverse times.

About 75 to 80 years ago, Poland was savagely slaughtered first by the Germans and then by the Russians --- resulting in approximately 6 million combined Civilian and Military deaths and the country decimated.

The Wuhan Virus probably seems like a mosquito bite in comparison.
