Last night marked one of the biggest unveils in the history of Ford with the Mustang Mach-E EV going official. The electric crossover is offered in multiple versions with extended-range flavors offering up to 300 miles of driving on a single charge. Ford has announced that the Mach-E reservation site is now open.
That means that fans of the Ford Mustang Mach-E can go over to the reservation site now and plunk down their $500 to reserve a Mach-E. Ford has made it clear that a reservation won’t guarantee you a vehicle when they start to ship in late 2020. Reservations can be placed on any of the Mach-E versions, including the limited-edition First Edition version.
Ford notes that the special GT Performance Edition will be available in spring 2021. The fine print Ford is listing says that the deposit only allows the configuration of a vehicle. The reservation process is not an order and isn’t a purchase. Those who reserve get to finalize their configuration next year when the ordering window opens.
Available models that can be reserved and configured range from the base Select SR RWD with a 230-mile driving range up to the GT AWD that starts at $60,500. The GT Performance Edition AWD version that will be available later hasn’t been priced. It is expected to sit above the GT AWD and presumably will have a higher price to boot.
Power numbers and performance vary with models, just as with the Mustang. The base Select SR has 255 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. GT AWD buyers get 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque. The Mach-E reservation site is here.
