We have a date for when the order bank opens.
Ford's first electric vehicle, the Mustang Mach-E has been making some major waves in the American motor industry and has opinions split regarding its looks, the fact that it uses the Mustang name, and everything in between. Despite its controversial personality, people are frothing at the mouth to get their hands on one of these cutting edge vehicles. The Mach-E, which is set to go up against the likes of the Tesla Model Y and even the Porsche Taycan is promised to offer Tesla-rivaling tech and even complimentary charging.
The good news is that, according to Mach-E forum, Ford has set an opening date for the Mach-E order bank.
A user on the forum writes: "I just spoke to my local Ford dealer for the first time about the Mach-E reservation and the info he got was that the order bank would be open on July 22nd. I see others are quoting the helpline as saying June 26th."
Another user goes on to say that they're opening up to get the dealers familiar with the product: "The order bank will open for dealers on the 22nd for them to become familiar with the product and order system. The customer online system I also heard internally is to open on the 26th for you to go online and do your conversion."
On paper, the Mustang Mach-E seems to deliver the goods: with a power output of 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque for the base model, and up to 459 hp on GT models, the Mach-E won't be a slouch. The standard 75.7 kWh lithium-ion battery or 98.8 kWh extended range battery will offer a competitive range, with the latter offering up to 300 miles in rear-wheel-drive guise.
So if what the Mach-E forum users are saying is true, then we should be able to start placing orders for this historic Ford car as soon as the end of June. These are exciting times indeed.
