They have already discontinued it I believe. These numbers are just sales of what was left on dealer lots.768 Continentals is just sad. I've said for years if Ford would make it an EV, put the suicide doors on it and price it about $175K, they would have a new legend on their hands.
More likely that February's numbers are inflated by all of the "stop-ship" January cars that were delayed into February. That said, in order to meet the annual goal of 50,000, they need a 4100/month run rate. There will be month-to-month fluctuations.I wonder if the chip shortage is the reason for the drop in sales for March? It makes me nervous that cars scheduled for the next few months will be delayed.
it depends on who you askIsn’t the rule of thumb for any two year old car 20% per year.
MSRP x 80% = 56k 56k x 80% = 45k
64% of 63k would be 40k.
A buddy of mine who could walk into a Lincoln dealer whenever he feels like it and just buy what he wants - cash - and is a Ford fan, flat out refused to buy one, despite loving the vehicle. His reason? “Jimmy, it’s an unforgivable crime that they put a drivetrain from a soviet agricultural implement in that car when they have so many good engines and transmissions! Look at what Mercedes puts in the S class and BMW puts in the 7 series!” I think he would have like to have seen the engine from the Mustang Mach 1 mated to the 10 speed automatic or something.768 Continentals is just sad.

Didn’t Ford say they were going to make money from the start on the Mustang Mach E?I remember Ford promising to make 50,000 MMEs this year. I assume that was for global distribution? If Ford sells maybe 35,000 in the US, that doesn’t seem like a lot. I wonder where the breakeven is on the investment, if it’s even possible to calculate such a thing.
That’s impossible if you factor in the R&D cost. Ford made a massive investment in electrification. Now granted, you can only attribute a portion of that to the MME, but I think Ford must be years away from turning a profit on that investment.Didn’t Ford say they were going to make money from the start on the Mustang Mach E?
