Ford is still playing mum on numbers of Ford Mustang Mach-E EVs that have been sold. We do know that enough people reserved the First Edition model that Ford listed it as sold out earlier this week. We had also learned that Ford could make 50,000 of the EVs the first year with battery packs being the constraint. Considering the Mach-E will launch in North America and Europe at the same time production will be split between both countries.
The expectation is that the U.S. will get at least half of that production number. A Ford engineer had told an EV advocate called Kelly Olsen that about 500 Mach-Es would be offered per state with a larger portion expected to go to California as the largest consuming state for electric vehicles.
Another interesting tidbit about volume for the Ford Mustang Mach-E comes in a response from Ford about how long its full $7,500 federal tax incentive would last. Ford said that the tax credits would last about a year from the time the Mach-E launches. Ford has over 80,000 vehicles left it can sell before its $7,500 tax credit phases out and about a year of sales of existing electric cars before the Mach-E goes on sale.
That would add up to indicate that Ford expects to sell 25,000 Mach-Es in the States in its first year of availability. Whether or not there will be any Mach-Es on dealer lots of people to walk in and buy remains to be seen. We have no idea how many of the EVs have been reserved as of now.
