Ford to Move Electric Car Production to Mexico, Tags U.S. Plant for Driverless Car

Ford Motor Co. plans to produce a future electric car in Mexico rather than make it in the U.S., reversing plans announced in January to make its Flat Rock, Mich., assembly plant near Detroit its main electric-vehicle production site.

Instead, Ford will convert that suburban Detroit factory into a manufacturing hub for future driverless vehicles, a top company official said. And it plans to create a dedicated assembly line for electric vehicles at its plant in Cuautitlan, Mexico, with production slated to begin in 2020.
