Same here ("carbonized"), after multiple failures of the site to update my profile and charge my card (and I had to come to this thread to find the page, since on Ford.Com, the Mach-E is not listed in the "Electrics" section and a search on "mach-e" returns no results - brilliant!).Reserved in gray, GT trim.
I noticed UTC time stamps as wellOh good, that reservation thing actually worked properly for someone. On my confirmation screen it said my “Reservation Date” was “NAN/NAN/NAN”. I wish I took a screenshot.
Grabber Blue First Edition. In the email confirmation it said my reservation date was 11/18/19, which was a neat trick considering the 11/17 launch event was just ending...
Black Premium reserved 11/17- AWD
I have two questions for you guys-
1. do you think it will really be late 2020- any chance it's sooner? odds of it being pushed back?
2. leasing vs. buying? I always buy but I wonder if these things will hold their value. I guess that's the gamble with being an early adopter of something!
as a car guy for many years, I feel like I have figured out the lease vs buy thing in other contexts but a new model and a pure EV throws a monkey wrench in things for me- I know how many miles you can get out of an ICE car but resale values on EV's are a little trickier to predict for me. one clue will be the lease #'s when they come out- that gives a clue to the anticipated depreciation. We'll see! I'm really excited though for a ground up designed EV from Ford as opposed to TeslaI would be surprised if it's sooner. I think it would be more likely that its pushed back. HOWEVER, this is a big launch for Ford. Hopefully they have done their due diligence and wouldn't publicize a late 2020 launch if they didn't feel confident in pulling it off.
I am in the same position when it comes to lease versus buy. However, I have always bought imports which tend to hold their value longer than domestic vehicles. However, I feel like EVs in general could be a gamble on depreciation, regardless of manufacturers. I am open to leasing but drive an average of 17k miles a year. I am not sure if Leasing would make sense in my situation. I am definitely open to it. I wish Ford would do something like Care by Volvo (basically a lease that includes insurance and maintenance, $0 down, and can swap out every 12 or 24 months).
