We now know when the craze will start.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E may have divided opinion when it was revealed, but it's proven to be rather popular with buyers, and with a GT version that is quicker than a Porsche 911, its appeal is only growing. With more power and sharper, more aggressive styling, the electric crossover is sure to be a big hit. But when will this exciting model be available to order? According to a new post made on Mach-E Forum, orders will open next week. Thanks to a leaked letter to Ford dealers, we can tell you that the GT will be available to order from Wednesday, April 28.
An excerpt from the letter that Ford sent to its dealers reads as follows: "The 2021 Mustang Mach-E Job 2 (including Mustang Mach-E GT) order bank, order guide, and price list will launch on the afternoon of Monday, April 26th. Customers will be invited to convert Mustang Mach-E GT Reservations on April 28th."
The letter also encourages these dealers to revisit the rules that Ford has set in place for pricing, so dealers shouldn't be taking too many liberties with mark-ups. Of course, with a car like this that will be in high demand, there will also be customers who will consider selling their reservations at a premium.
The letter also clarifies something for buyers: "Some customers may believe that they can ensure an earlier build date by placing a new retail order and canceling their reservation. This is not true. New retail GT orders will likely be scheduled into the '22MY. The best way for customers to get their vehicle as soon as possible is to follow the intended reservation-to-order process."
The arrival of the GT model is great news, but some forum users have pointed out that Ford has experienced delays with other vehicles like the Bronco. Nevertheless, we remain confident that Ford is getting back on track, and soon we'll get to experience that extra power from one of this year's most important EVs.
