Ford Using VR to Train Techs to Service 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E
Ford is using the all-new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, the first ever all-electric Mustang SUV, to usher in another all-new capability – using virtual reality to train technicians on how to service the all-new all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV. Not only will this new VR practice allow technicians to train and practice servicing all-new 2021 Mustang Mach-E all-electric SUVs, but will also open the doors for the practice to be used for all new Ford models – thereby eliminating the need to physical models for training. So, let’s check out just how Ford is using VR to train techs to service the all-new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric SUV.

Explaining How Virtual Reality Helps Ford Techs Learn to Service and Maintain the All-New 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E All-Electric SUV
It’s not surprising that Ford decided to begin the practice of using virtual reality to train technicians on servicing and maintaining their new cars, trucks and SUVs with the all-new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric SUV. Its complex systems are new for Ford, and with the model not arriving until later this year, VR is an easy way to get training started without having to worry about having a physical model available. But you don’t have to take our word for it. You can hear it straight from the experts at Ford and their partners at Bosch.
“Technicians will be immersed in a simulated and gamified world, meaning they won’t need to rely on actual Mustang Mach-E vehicles to learn about its components, including the electric SUV’s new high-voltage system. This new virtual reality training tool allows technicians to understand the components and steps required to service these high-voltage systems, then confidently perform diagnostics and maintenance.”Dave Johnson, Director of Ford Service Engineering Operations
“The virtual reality training solution is about new technology that builds efficiency. By improving the diagnostic process, technicians are able to perform maintenance and make repairs faster and more easily.”Geoff Mee, Director of Operations for Bosch
