“This isn’t the first time we’ve 3D-printed a vehicle part, but this one is different,” said Harold Sears, technical leader for additive manufacturing. “It highlights a special connection with the customer and is really exciting because it showcases the potential to personalize. When you think additive manufacturing, you think of making parts, assembly fixtures, or jigs to help build a vehicle, but this is another place where additive manufacturing can shine.”
Ford initially sold out of the Mach-E First Edition before offering a second batch to customers. The company has not disclosed how many First Edition models were ordered, but each was powered by electric motors producing 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque.
