Mustang Mach-E order date June 26.jpg


I just spoke to my local Ford dealer for the first time about the Mach-E reservation and the info. he got was that the order bank would be open on July 22nd. I see others are quoting the help line as saying June 26th. I wonder if the later date is because of my reservation number being 10040--- range, or if he just got wrong information.
The order bank will open for dealers on the 22nd for them to become familiar with the product and order system. The customer online system I also heard internally is to open on the 26th for you to go online and do your conversion.

It would seem logical to convert the Gt later, as it is at least a year away unfortunately. Does that make it a '22 model?

Strange that the order bank opens on 6/26 but we won't get the email until 6/30. Guess for those at the forums with inside track, we have a 4 day advantage versus your general public that waits for Ford.

I wonder if the order guide will leak

That's confusing to me too . . . maybe it will just be all the pricing and options, but won't accept orders until 6/30?

It could also be a way of letting enthusiasts try to grab any available FEs first. If we can place orders before the emails go out, if gives those of us who are watching Mach-E news a head start to place our orders.

I believe the order bank is opening earlier so that reservist can familiarize themselves to the exact packaging and what's is included in those packages. At least that's what I was told by Mach-E Helpline.

Maybe. I won’t be posting it because those are specifically marked Proprietary.

But that doesn’t mean I’m not checking our site everyday waiting for it.
I just spoke with the Sales Manager at my local dealership who had a "very long" document sent to him today, but he hadn't been able to go through it all. He skimmed it with me on the phone, and it seemed like it was the "Reservation to Order Guide" referenced here I think? He did mention these dates along with the "deadline" for ordering on certain trims/etc.

I saw a very long, like almost 80 pages, document on how to facilitate sales online / touchless deliveries instead of in-person. I wonder if that was it. But, I hope you're right that it's part of the EV training.

It is keeping with Ford's policy of waiting to give information to those who are most interested in it, for no apparent reason. Perhaps they figure Easter eggs are the latest fad?

Which is rather ridiculous. Hey, if you stumble onto the right page at the right time you're good, otherwise we'll let you know 4 days later because, well, we're not sure.

That was my guess -- that people should be able to go in and see final pricing in the order book, look up options and configs, etc. But not actually be able to place the order until 6/30. Which makes sense because people should have some time to research the finalized prices and options.

Agree and hope that is the correct interpretation. They just want to drive us crazy for another week, but at least more and more news keeps coming out now after so many months or relative radio silence.
