Hey folks!

I'm a complete newbie when it comes to ordering cars online to get queued for production, so I just had a question:

I just ordered a Mach-E California Route 1 - grabber blue. I'm being told it'll probably be a 2023 model when I get it. Your stories of ordering and wait times here scare me a little. What realistically happens now?

Thanks in advance.

Now what-? A very long frustrating wait. Your from CA so being an EV state will help with your priority. My guess- July

I wish I was from California, but alas, I'm from NC. I know this state is really pushing EVs, too...so hopefully I can get it before Christmas. :)

Ford is also increasing production, aiming for like 200k a year I think. Assuming no hiccups I think its likely you'll get it this year. Ford didn't change people to 2022 till October last year. They didn't start building till Jan. Granted there is the odd story of people who ordered way longer ago and still don't have one. There are also people who somehow get one quicker. Either way, I'd say your likely to get a 2022.

That makes me feel a little better, thanks!

The reference is to states that have adopted California's ZEV standards.

California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, and Washington, as well as Washington, DC.

These states get preference.

So far from what i can tell most of the 2022 orders are on track to hit their 20 or 28 week timeline. My 2022 CR1 is on track to go from order to delivery right at 20 weeks.

That gives me potential hope!

Travel on a slow boat around the world, read war in peace (in Russian), have a baby. Those are all things I could have done during my 9 month wait. :D
And yet you did none of those. So, are you an underachiever? 😂

Contract agreements with the dealer? No ADM assurance in writing? Hopefully that would be a non issue by then, but if there’s a wait list for folks ordering now, I wouldn’t take chances.
