2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Select Order Banks Close This Week

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.

    probably so they can hike the prices like the Lightning. two 5K plus price hikes in as many months. what a joke. Next they will say they are seeing major demand when they purposely limit supply. of course those not getting what they want will demand it. The rest of us shake our heads and look elsewhere.

      Exactly. EVs are insanely expensive and Americans have made it clear they won’t buy them.

    The sales numbers are abysmal for the MachE. We are lucky companies like Toyota refused to slow ICE vehicle production. This is why Ford’s financial numbers continue to suffer compared to manufacturers who are refusing to move to EVs.

      LoL despite a lead on hybrid, Toyota slept on EV. They now have a major EV development offensive underway. This was shown by Mr Toyota several months ago after TC realized it wasn’t only Tesla, but VW and Ford had stolen a march on them.

    Price of gas is climbing again. With solar panels, I plug in the EV and drive for free. Meanwhile Toyota produces some of the worst gas guzzlers available. I’m not betting on old tech.

    As long as the price is as high as they currently are people will just hang on to their ICE vehicle or buy another brand. Everybody doesn’t want a crossover suv. A car works nicely for most. They also don’t have to deal with the long trip planning hassle related to charging.

      Charging hassles will resolve themselves in the next couple of years.

      Remember mid to late 1990’s cell roaming? Couldn’t call someone outside of their zone without knowing where they were, who the area providers were and having a list of codes to dial into the zone.

      Sometimes you had to try several to maybe get connected. It was a hit and usually miss hassle.

      As soon as cell phones became ubiquitous, standards came in, and bigger players bought up smaller players, coverage, convenience, simplicity and utility improved and costs went down.

      So will it be with charging networks.

      And it will happen faster because infrastructure investment money is there to incubate and spur its expansion.

      Not to mention pooling of networks is underway and common connectors are coming too.
