Details On Ford Mustang Mach-E Availability Surface

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

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.

  1. “.. Ford listed it as sold out ” That cannot be true as the Mach-E is not on sale yet. Ford should have posted that the First Edition reservations were all taken. This is the same mistake that Tesla did before any of their models were sold, since they don’t have salesrooms or dealers.

    So watch out if someone posts that “Tesla has sold out their Cybertrucks”. It is the same lie according to the point of the viewer.

  2. Hear me out on this, personally I’m still not on board with this whole push for “Electric vehicles” I understand the technology is there, but as with everything else, it’s gonna take YEARS for an all electric vehicle to be completely dominant over an I.C.E. and that means constant trial and errors, going back to drawing boards, and etc. I mean we are talking about over century’s worth of work for the gas engine to become as reliable and durable as it is today, and this new technology with electric motors is JUST beginning. It’s only been like what 10-15 years of hybrid technology? My point is it’ s gonna take at least 30-50 years to even see a major incline of reliability for electric vehicles. Now heres where I come to grips with the idea Ford has for an electric vehicle, why would you use an Iconic Pony car nameplate such as the Mustang and stick it onto a compact crossover? The mustang was NEVER a crossover, it has ALWAYS been a 2 door coupe and fastback, I just don’t understand. To me they should’ve brought back the “Model E” nameplate from the dead back in the 1920’s and use it for something like so, wouldnt have that been an interesting move to go with coming into the 2020’s? Or is it just me? Bottom line is, Ford made a risky move to use a mustang nameplate that has been an icon for the past 50 years and just taint it with a crossover.

  3. Tyler, it seems as though Ford might have figured something out that you might have not yet 😉 consumer have the freedom to dismiss the fact that mobility has changed but Ford is looking into the future and not seeing themselves in it! What a wakeup call it must have been for Jim Hackett.
    So… they repurposed a whole plant, invested 1/2 billion $$$ in an EV partnership and are using their Pony to jump into this changed market … not in 30-50 years. Today.
    I hate to be in the shoes of other legacy stragglers.

  4. Ford will be using an ad covenant to prevent dealer mark ups. Anyone who breaks the covenant loses big money. Also there will be no discount. Invoice equals MSRP and the is no holdback.

  5. @Tyler: You forgot to mention the scourge of hippies with their long hair and rock’n roll music that’s ruining our good ol’ US of A. When was the “theory of development relativity” formulated that bound development timetables across all technologies to that of the ICE. Who cares what anyone does or doesn’t call their EV, the segment is driving (pardon the pun) exciting and valuable innovation in a field (again, pardon the pun) that has been around since Edison and Tesla, which is already capable of providing energy more efficiently than traditional ICE technologies (in domestic class automobiles at least). When was ICE technology deemed the only acceptable (or cool) source of automobile motion? Should mankind stop exploring alternative engine technologies in automobiles because ICE’s were used first? My guess is you’re still moaning about the negative impact of smartphones and microprocessors ? Respect for having to walk 15 miles, uphill, in the snow, to get to school each day while growing up ?

    • @Hungdaddy: Lol fyi I’m only 21, so all of them old jokes made me laugh a little, putting that aside, you missunderstood what I was getting at. I never said I was totally against “Electric Vehicles” I was saying im not on board with it yet, theres still much more room to improve before it becomes completely dominant over an I.C.E. My whole thing was why put a nameplate on something for many decades was always a 2 door pony car, and stick it on a crossover that couldve been named differently. I have no room for hate here, but to me Ford shouldve named the vehicle differently like I mentioned before, they couldve called it a “Model E” for example.

  6. Pointing out ignorance doesn’t equate to hate. Your focus is in the wrong area. Automobiles and the automobile industry is on the cusp of a technological revolution, a revolution which was ignored by traditionalists to its own detriment. As with most revolutions, the EV revolution has gained momentum and grown in popularity under the radar of traditionalists. Generating interest and support for being part of the future by cashing in on the nostalgia of a well regarded legacy is a far smarter option than to risk all that investment and the “Mustang” name becoming a legacy only.

  7. Pointing out ignorance and engaging in debate does not equate to hate. You’ll be calling me a Nazi or racist for disagreeing with you next. Your focus is in the wrong area. Automobiles and the automobile industry is on the cusp of a technological revolution, a revolution which was ignored by traditionalists in Detroit to its own detriment. As with most revolutions, the EV revolution has gained momentum and grown in popularity under the radar of traditionalists. Generating interest and support for being part of the future, by cashing in on the nostalgia of a well regarded legacy, is a far smarter strategy than to risk all that investment and the “Mustang” name becoming a legacy only.
