Ford invests heavily to build EVs, next-gen Mustang at Flat Rock plant

Ford on Wednesday said it will increase the investment it plans for its Flat Rock Assembly near Detroit to add production capacity for its next-generation battery-electric vehicles and next-generation Mustang. The announcement that Ford will invest more than $850 million through 2023 in the plant, which currently builds the Mustang and the Lincoln Continental, also means the addition of a second shift and 900 incremental new jobs. The announcement that it will use Flat Rock to build EVs, part of its planned $11.1 billion global investment in electric vehicles, is a bit of a roller coaster ride for the plant.
