If you were hoping to buy this particular version of Ford's electric SUV, you're out of luck.
It was just over a week ago when the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E made its world debut before being shown to the public at the 2019 LA Auto Show. Unsurprisingly, demand for Ford's first-ever electric SUV appears to be high because the Mustang Mach-E First Edition has already sold out. Ford didn't announce how many First Edition models it intends to produce, but the Mustang Mach-E's reservation website lists the limited-edition SUV as "sold out."
Ford wasn't joking when it said the First Edition "won't last long." It's worth noting, however, that more reservations could become available if customers refund their $500 deposit. During the first year of production, Ford plans to produce 50,000 units of the Mustang Mach-E.
Starting at $59,900, the Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition is available in three exterior colors, including an exclusive Grabber Blue Metallic body color. Unique contrast stitching, special "First Edition" scuff plates, red brake calipers, and brushed aluminium pedals further distinguish the limited-edition SUV.
The First Edition is only available with AWD and an extended range battery with an EPA-estimated driving range of 270 miles. With AWD, the standard Mach-E produces an estimated 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque, enabling the electric SUV to hit 0-62 mph in around 5.5 seconds.
With the First Edition sold out, buyers now have four trims to choose from: Select, California Route 1, Premium, and GT.
Deliveries for the First Edition and Premium versions will begin in late 2020, while the entry-level Select and efficient California Route 1 trims are slated to arrive in early 2021. These trims will be followed by the range-topping Mach-E GT in spring 2020, which develops 459 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque and does 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds in the Performance version, matching the Shelby GT500's 0-62 mph time.
