2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Retail Orders Paused For Some Models

Ford Motor Company has been faced with a bit of a good problem in recent months as demand for some of its newer and hotter models has exceeded its production capacity. This has forced the automaker to stop taking orders first for the 2022 Ford Maverick back in January – while some 2022 orders may get pushed to the 2023 model year – as well as the 2022 Ford Bronco, which will see its order books closed next week. Now, that same phenomenon has also impacted the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E, as sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that FoMoCo has already ended retail orders for certain trims.

The automaker stopped taking retail orders for 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium and California Route 1 trims back in February due to strong demand, though order banks remain open for Select, GT, and GT Performance Edition models. Also, those that have an existing order placed for a Premium or California Route 1-trimmed 2022 Mach-E can still modify those orders, even though order books are now closed.

Demand for Ford’s EV crossover has exceeded supply for some time now, with some unscheduled 2021 model year orders were previously pushed to the 2022 model year as the automaker continues to battle the semiconductor chip shortage and other supply constraints, in addition to unexpectedly high demand.

Meanwhile, Ford is looking to vastly expand its Mach-E production capacity to 200k units per year at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico by 2023, as Ford Authority reported back in December. Previously, FoMoCo planned on building all-electric versions of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator at that same plant but nixed those plans in order to focus on expanding Mach-E production over the next year or so.

      The Big Three can’t make cars anymore. Isn’t it obvious? Its not the parts shortage that is an issue anymore. Its their inability to make cars people want to buy. They are refusing to make electrics.
