According to reports from the Mach-E forum, Ford now has more than 40,000 reservations for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, representing about 83% of the 50,000 unit production capacity for the 2021 model year.
Granted, not all of the reservations will convert to sales, and the $500 deposit requirement is fully refundable for those that change their mind. Still, Ford has only been accepting reservations for a little over three months and the first year’s production seems to be nearly all spoken for. The Mach-E First-Edition sold out in a matter of days back in November.
The highest registered VIN posted to the site so far was over 41,400, so they are rapidly closing in on “sold out” status. Ford did say the first 4,000 vehicles would be reserved for dealership display and test drives, employee purchases, and crash testing, so in reality, only about 37,400 have been reserved by the general public.
We don’t find this news all that surprising. By all accounts, the Mustang Mach-E looks to be a legitimately exciting electric vehicle, not a car conceived and designed by the need for regulatory compliance.
