Ford has indicated that battery supply will limit their first year Mach-E production to only about 50,000 units.

I would guess that a new modern line like they will have set up for this vehicle will easily be able to run at a production rate of at least 4,000 per week.

So, depending at what rate the batteries arrive at, they could complete this 50,000 unit run in only a little over 12 weeks or 3 months.

Will be interesting to see how Ford handles this --- maybe run the line at about 25% capacity or little over a 1,000 per week until
late Spring with First Edition, Premium and Select Model deliveries.
Then make a few tweeks to the line for the GT Models to complete the 50,000 units and keep a slow production rate going over the entire 52 weeks.

I’m already getting anxious waiting for my First Edition arriving.:)

Battery production will run 24/7 at a special line just for Ford at LG's Poland plant. Battery production will be shared with the Transit van so I doubt that all that battery production can be done in 3 months unless they start another production line or increase the speed of the current line. Full capacity of the line was done for cost reasons.

Apparently for the year after they will add another plant for increased production. The Poland plant is exclusive to Ford ONLY. By running 24/7 will keep the costs to the minimum thereby making the car profitable from day 1.
