Indeed, that was really quick. Ford confirmed the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is sold out worldwide as of Dec 31. Beforehand the automaker revealed that the model was no longer available in the US. So, if you were planing to put a deposit down for one of the first versions of the electric SUV heading to production, you’ve missed the opportunity. Ford quietly removed the First Edition from the Mustang Mach-E’s configurator back in November, and this week issued an announcement declaring they’ve all been spoken for.
Ford is planing to build around 50,000 Mustang Mach-E models globally in its first full year of production. The rather low figures due to limited battery supplies, Ford previously said.
As for what potential buyers put their deposit fee toward, Ford said the most popular color choice was carbonized gray, tallying 38% of all preorders. Grabber blue was a close second with 35% of preorders. In third was rapid red, which accounted for 27% of preorders.
The $500 deposit comes before the actual $61,000 price (after a $1,100 destination charge) for the First Edition. It will be a pretty well-equipped machine, though, with the bigger battery, all-wheel drive, vegan leather upholstery and other features. The Mustang Mach-E First Edition will sport 332 horsepower and go an estimated 270 miles on a charge.
Outside of the First Edition model over 80% of all customers placing preorders opted for the extended-range battery option, and 55% have chosen all-wheel drive. Nearly 30% have chosen the high-performance GT trim. In one last fun, more than 25% of all reservations came from California, which continues to champion zero-emissions cars.
The closest thing to the First Edition that’s still available will be the Premium trim, which has a lot of the same features but without the honor of coming first. Its price starts at $51,700 but gets expensive quickly with more options. It will also launch late next year after the First Edition. Other more affordable models and the GT performance trim will come in 2021.
