The Dutch importer indicates that the problem is known and that there will be a software update that will solve the potential problem. The update can be installed over-the-air (OTA) or at the dealer when it becomes available. In total, there are about 4,800 Mach-E Mustangs in the Netherlands, the importer reports. Up to and including May 2022, about 4,500 Mustangs have been delivered in the Netherlands, which means that almost all copies of the Mustang Mach-E require a software update.
Ford previously called on American car dealers to temporarily stop selling the Mustang Mach-E. According to Automotive News, among others, the brand is recalling nearly 50,000 units in the United States because of a possible problem that could cause a main switch of the batteries to overheat. As a result, the Mustang Mach-E may refuse to start or even stall while driving.
The electric family car, which is mainly reminiscent of the famous Ford sports car in terms of styling, came on the Dutch market in February 2021.
