There have been some dealers telling their customers that hybrid vehicles are delayed and won't be available for 6-8 months. Some saying there are thermal issues.

I want everyone to know they are NOT correct.

Hybrid scheduling and production continues each week.

OKTB (okay to buy) is pending EPA testing.

Information straight from the Maverick team.

I was told that late October, most likely November and possibly December are when I can expect my hybrid XL. Is that still a reasonable time frame given what you know?

Thanks.

Earliest date would be early November if they got released next week. Allow 4 weeks from factory to your dealer.

Thank you Tim for all the work that you put into this. It's great to hear the news from a reliable source then just hearsay.

Tim, thank you for putting this message out! It's troubling how much misinformation is being put out by some dealerships (or more accurately, some salespersons)! This should be troubling to Ford, as this misinformation will cause some to look to other vehicle manufacturers for their vehicle purchases!

What you say makes sense, considering that the Hybrids do not list their EPA fuel mileage ratings yet.

Do they need a tester? I am totally available. I can’t understand why this is based on the escape and still not OKTB
Ford already copied the numbers once for the CMAX from the Fusion. They could do this as the CMAX was based off the Fusion. Didn’t work out for them at all.
