Ford has offered up some details on the Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition reservation process. The one thing that many wanted to know was exactly how many reservations Ford has received for the Mach-E. Ford isn’t sharing that detail currently. Still, it’s nice to get some insights into what consumers are reserving.
Ford confirmed that reservations for the Mustang Mach-E First Edition are officially full, something we mentioned a while back. Ford did note specifically that the Premium edition and the GT are still available to pre-order. The interesting tidbits offered are about the Mustang Mach-E First Edition vehicles that have been reserved.
Ford says that Carbonized Gray has been the most popular color option, with 38 percent of those who reserved a First Edition choosing that color. Grabber Blue Metallic was a close second with 35 percent, and Rapid Red was the third most popular color at 27 percent. Over 80- percent of users who reserved the Mach-E are choosing the Extended Range Battery.
Ford says that about 55 percent of all who have reserved a Mach-E have opted for the all-wheel-drive version. Almost 30 percent of those who reserved the vehicle have chosen the Mach-E GT. As you might have expected, more than 25 percent of all MAch-E orders have originated in California. While reservations are full for the First Edition of the EV, the GT and Premium versions are still available.
We wish Ford has stated how many reservations it has had. A large number of these users will certainly drop out before they finish the purchase process. We still suspect that the Mach-E will have markups added to the sticker price. When we asked a Ford spokesperson about potential markups, the response was they aren’t aware of any markups.

Most of us have to wait until late 2020 or early 2021 to order and buy our own Mach-E unit. I will probably wait until middle 2021 to do so.
I agree…sometimes being an early adopter is NOT a good thing. Also should be less expensive options to choose from. I will wait until they have the full self driving feature available.
