The Ford Mustang Mach-E has remained in high demand since its launch over a year ago, though like every other vehicle on the planet at the moment, supply chain issues including the semiconductor chip shortage are making it difficult for FoMoCo to meet that demand. Many that have ordered a 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E have found themselves waiting a considerable amount of time to take delivery of their new vehicles recently, and now, the EV crossover’s build and price page is showing a current wait time of 32+ weeks.
That’s obviously a significant delay that means anyone placing an order for a 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E today may not take delivery of that vehicle until just before the holiday season starts in November. It’s the longest delay for the Mach-E that we’ve seen to date, and the addition of the “+” leaves open the possibility that anyone ordering one now may not even get a 2022 model year vehicle. Previously, the site showed wait times ranging from 20-28 weeks.
Currently, buyers only have the option to build and price a 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E in Select or GT trims, as 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. Additionally, Ford dropped Active Park Assist 2.0 from Job 2 production of the 2022 model year Mach-E and are instead equipping models with the Active Park Assist Prep Kit, which allows dealers to install the feature at a later date when it becomes available. As a result of these production issues, finding a deal on a new Mach-E is difficult, but not impossible.
On the bright side, the Mach-E GT is enjoying quite a bit of success as the high-performance model continues to resonate with customers, which is also likely helping to drive a robust 72 percent all-wheel drive take rate across the Mach-E range.
