UPDATE on the evening of 8/27/2020:

The final #MachDrop push should happen tomorrow (Friday, 8/28) on Spotify. It's expected to be a Rapid Red First Edition.

See the scanned document in @GrumblesTheDog's post for more dealer details. Requests through this program should be accepted by EV certified dealers through 8/30, but there is also a wait-list for possible remaining allocations that your dealer can add you to. https//www.macheforum.com/site/threads/ford-is-opening-up-some-more-first-edition-mach-e-orders.1274/post-30657

UPDATE on the evening of 8/26/2020:

Please see this post from @JCHLi, which shows the details that every dealer should have received regarding how this works: https://www.macheforum.com/site/thr...e-first-edition-mach-e-orders.1274/post-30436

UPDATE on the morning of 8/21/2020:

@benboy12 found the number to call to place your FE order, from this Instagram post: 844.802.6634. @Mantooth called and was directed to call his local dealer. Meanwhile, @MurphyDog called the toll-free number and reached someone who was able to get the ball rolling for him.

So if you're interested in the First Edition, start with the toll-free number and if no luck, try your local dealer:

To order, call 844-802-6634 and ask about ordering the First Edition. Mention the #MachDrop you found on social media. In some cases, they may redirect you to call the Mach-E specialist at your local dealer.

I wonder if they're truly "building more" or just opening up cancelled/non-converted reservations...

I would love one but they do not come in Star white.

I wish they would reach out to those that have reservations/orders in already and see if we want to switch. I didn't go with First Edition at the time, but now I've changed my mind -- especially if it means I could get the Mach-E this year. Colorado's tax credit goes down on January 1st, so it makes since for me to try to get it this year if possible.

Yep. The extra $1500 state tax credit pretty much pays for the extra cost of the FE.

YES!! I would switch from my Premium on order to an FE if that was possible. I also would like to get my MME this year for tax credit purposes. The FEs were already sold out before I reserved my MME. An FE in rapid red would be perfect (except maybe the wheels if they are different).

They are. Call your dealer rep and let them know you are interested. I switched to an FE last week. Originally I thought it was someone that reserved at that dealership that changed their mind but in speaking with my rep yesterday, he told me that Ford contacted him last week to say some FEs are available. So I agreed to switch from a Premium AWD Standard Range to First Edition.

Boy, I sure wish I could get in on this deal. I don't Twitter or Spotify or whatever this references.

For those wanting to switch . . . call your dealer.

For those who have switched like me . . . they cancelled my premium order, and that is all that shows in my Ford owner page - the cancelled Premium. I have asked my dealer if he can have the FE show up there so I can track everything. This was over a week ago. He told me he has reached out to Ford and is waiting for a reply.

So, have any of you other switchers seen your FE show up on your owner page? Have any of you gotten email from Ford (other than your dealer) confirming the order with an order number? I have the order printout from my dealer to confirm, but just with my name and that is all.

Do I have the willpower to wait a year for a GT or will I break down and call the dealership for a First Edition? Found out tonight, News at 5.

I just contacted my dealer and he said he can't switch me to a First Edition. :-( They weren't that helpful after I placed my order, so I am not sure I trust that answer.

Other than different exterior paint color options, what does the FE have over the PE?

Well, my dealer did it for me. But they knew I was interested from the moment my order was placed. I had a fairly early number premium #10004247- so that may have been a factor, but tell them my dealer did it through their regional sales manager.

While it would be nice if they would reach out to existing reservation holders and offer the option to switch, it seems like this is more of a marketing gimmick like when a radio station gives away concert tickets.

I know some people are getting to switch when they have requested but unless Idris Elba is going to be calling people and seeing if they want to switch, I think this is more focused on getting new orders not switching premiums to FE
