Ford has basically said that hybrids were going to be constrained to 35 percent. Curious what our membership has ordered so far. Might give us a clue as to how long hybrid ordering will be available.
Maybe I am still reading that sheet wrong but I don't think it is stating that those are constraints. It is saying that is what Ford plans to build and that is what parts they are ordering. If the orders they actually receive differ from that plan then they have a problem and parts become a "constraint".Frankly, I can't comprehend how the XL is constrained at 15 percent.
I guess we will see as the poll matures but yeah, that's pretty much the opposite of the "plan". Wonder whether the "plan" is based on history, astrology or available parts.............The poll results are pretty daunting, pretty much the exact opposite of Ford’s planned production ratio. Methinks this won’t end well for us hybrid folks…
Prob only bought limited account of that interior.Frankly, I can't comprehend how the XL is constrained at 15 percent. Common sense says it takes less resources to build than an XLT or Lariat. So Ford is trying to upsell to higher profit vehicles, I get it. But I doubt anyone just wanting cheap basic transportation is going to spend another 5 or ten thousand dollars. Just sell what people want Ford.
