LG Chem. The first bunch of batteries (8,000 IIRC) come from Korea with the rest from the new plant in Poland.
LG Chem's plant in Wroclaw has been open since 2018, same plant that Mercedes-Benz EQC, Jaguar I-Pace, etc. cells come from.

Crazy some of the recent news on how battery tech is progressing... one concern I have is if newer battery tech will lower the value of the current crop of EVs.... over time...

BorgWarner doesn’t make the motor, they just add the different parts into their integrated housing.

I haven’t seen anything about the motor itself, whether its Ford built, or Ford designed and outsource built, or just a motor from a third-party supplier.

BorgWarner’s iDM is available in three scalable designs: iDM90, iDM120 and iDM160. connections between conductors, improving reliability and robustness."

I read the article. However, the iDM unit for the Mustang Mach-E is custom.

From Borg Warner press release.

“BorgWarner announced today it is building a power-packed Integrated Drive Module (iDM) for Ford’s new all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV. The iDM comes complete with a BorgWarner thermal-management system and gearbox integrated with a motor and power electronics from other suppliers, and showcases the company’s system integration expertise.”

Designers really need to make it easy to swap out a battery given the pace of change in battery technology
