Price list from April:
The Mach-E, and future electric models in China, will be sold directly by Ford (without dealers). The company intends to inaugurate 25 stores in major metropolitan areas,by end of this year and expand to more than 100 stores within five years.
Ford says that the direct sales approach “is key to the company’s electrification push in the country.” We assume that multiple new electric Ford models are coming in China.
