What hitch receiver options and specifications should we expect for the Mach-E?
Carrying bicycles make more sense then actual towing.Ford's stated they're not releasing a trailer hitch option for the U.S. version of Mach-E. But they are for Europe, due to higher demand for it there (for bicycles, for instance). So I'd assume that in the U.S., you'd need to go to a third party for this.
Hitches in Europe are often quite different than in North America, so buying OEM European parts probably won’t be feasible. The weight distribution of trailers is also usually different in Europe, which is why the same vehicles often have higher towing capacities over there. I think our best bet will be to wait for an aftermarket hitch and hope that it doesn’t look terrible. Hopefully somebody will come out with a stealth hitch like this that fits.If Ford offers the hitch in Europe, you could possibly buy all the parts from Ford to add the hitch yourself.
That's a good sign that aftermarket companies are already thinking about hitches for the Mach-E. Of course, it will take them some time to design them after they get their hands on a Mach-E. After looking around, Stealth Hitches actually look like a better system than Ecohitch. Hopefully, they'll both be options shortly after the Mach-E is released.EcoHitch web site now has an option for 2021 Ford Mach-E.
So it appears we shouldn't be concerned about availability of aftermarket hitch options.
