The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E introduced some changes to the all-electric crossover, including some rather significant price increases. However, the high starting price point hasn’t deterred interested customers from ordering a Mustang Mach-E, as Ford Authority recently learned that the order banks for the crossover’s base Select trim level will temporarily close at the end of this week.
According to sources familiar with the matter, order banks for the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Select will close on October 7th, 2022 at 5 p.m. EST. Additionally, the Build and Price tool for the Mustang Mach-E Select was taken offline on October 6th at 8 a.m. EST. At this time, it’s not clear when order banks for the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E will be reopened.
It should be noted that these closures are temporary and do not impact the Mustang Mach-E Premium, California Route 1 and GT trim levels. The temporary closures for the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Select are being blamed supplier constraints and unanticipated demand for the trim. In fact, the Ford Mustang Mach-E was recognized as the third most-registered electric vehicle in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2022, proving that the crossover has thus far been a hit with consumers.
The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Select is not the only vehicle whose order banks will be closed in response to high demand recently. In September, The Blue Oval elected to shut down order banks for the highly popular 2023 Ford Maverick so it could focus on fulfilling orders from the previous model year that had not yet been honored and meeting demand for entirely news orders as well. In August, order banks for the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro Extended Range, which is geared toward fleet applications, were also shut down for the same reason. Additionally, order banks for the 2023 Ford Transit were also closed in late September.
