😁 Today at 12:14 pm, my dealer, Perry Ford, confirmed that my reservation has been entered into the order system and I have an Order ID. I made my reservation through the dealer in early January and am the first order they've placed.

At this point, I don't know what, if any, impact my reservation number has on my place in the production queue, once production begins.

My car is the Premium RWD extended range with the Star White Metallic tri-coat paint. I didn't change anything from the reservation but, again, have no idea how or if that may affect my place in the production schedule.

I think we did hear something about dealers being able to place orders starting today.

Are these vehicles for the dealership? I having trouble with the concept of an "order" made without your signature/electronic signature or other indicating you are in agreement with this action.

I think it is the OPs personal vehicle that was ordered since he/she didnt make any changes so it sounds like the dealer was authorized to place the order?

On the Ford.com website when viewing the reservation details, there is a tiny "177" next to the $500 deposit paid notation. Click on it and a message reads "Reservation does not guarantee vehicle delivery nor priority for ordering a vehicle."

So, I would presume that your order will be processed in order received at the assembly plant since it is a Premium model which we believe are being assembled first. The FE is a premium model so by default it is included in the previous statement...

A delaler I spoke with today told he is able to put in orders to the system. didn’t so it through him though since I don’t trust the guy..

the dealer I had my reservation with originally said the order bank opens on the 30th and i can turn reservation into order there. Still waiting to hear back about test drive and if the order is refundable/non-binding. (GM to confirm he said)

Spoke with dozen of Florida dealers today and 99% of the are clueless, it’s sad.

The vehicle is my personal vehicle. I don’t work for a dealer. I had to sign and date the order today. The dealer had my reservation number from when I reserved through them.

I had been told by the Mach E helpline that once a reservation was placed through a dealer, I couldn’t convert to the consumer online web system (aka WBDO). Turns out that seems to have been in my favor by a few days.
Happy for you, but I’m sure this will make some of us who reserved very early a bit crazy. I reserved online 10 minutes after the reveal and my dealer is so far clueless.

No need to rush or feel crazy. Just because the order was entered before yours is not what determines build priority. If you convert your order yourself or if the dealer does it for you, your reservation timestamp will stay with the order. Your reservation timestamp will determine your production sequence priority when the scheduling is finalized.

Agree that's a bummer for you. You really were early on, although my number was pretty low -- 3,055, if I'm decoding the sequence correctly.

And, although some have commented, we're not really sure how much a reservation number will drive a place in the production queue. For example, if you were to wait a while to confirm your order, would that jump you ahead? I don't know. Ford hasn't exactly covered themselves in glory by communicating the process details. This forum is great through. That's how I was able to "educate" my dealer and get my reservation converted quickly.

Sure hope that holds true. Fingers crossed. Are you hearing anything about the ability to pick up a FE if you have a premium?

I would guess many of us like myself will not hear anything until the 30th. Still no evidence that my small town dealership has installed Level 2 chargers which is another requirement.

I'm not doubting you, and it certainly seems fair, but how did you find out about the process? One issue is obviously "how long" someone can hang around to convert a reservation and have that timestamp slot them into the queue.

There has to be some kind of drop-dead-date to hold an unconverted reservation in line. My guess is that it's whatever the production lead time is. We don't know what that is for the Mach-E, 8, 6, 12 weeks once production starts?
