CHICAGO, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- The first Mustang Mach-E made in China for local consumers rolled off the assembly line Monday at Chang'an Ford's plant in Chongqing in southwest China.

Customers in China can now place orders for the Mustang Mach-E RWD, RWD Premium, RWD and GT First Edition. The China-built version will be available for delivery to customers in China, the world's largest auto maker and a leader in electric vehicle sales, by the end of this year, the Detroit News quoted Ford Motor Co. as saying on Monday.

Vehicle and battery system warranty, roadside assistance, new retail finance and replacement plans, and a referral bonus, will be available to customers in China who sign a purchase contract before the end of the year.

Ford announced earlier this year it would sell the Mach-E in China via a direct sales network of electric-vehicle stores. Ford is on track to open 25 stores in major metropolitan areas in China by the end of this year, and within five years, the network is slated to expand to more than 100 stores. Enditem
