Insideevs is reporting that Mach-e production increased > 50% in March to 6700.

When are the European deliveries beginning? Also, the Mach-es from China factory started rolling out last month. I think global sales will pick up in April/May.

Chevy Bolt: Chevy has huge discounts on these old Bolts. With Costco reward of $3000 & other rebates, one can get it for just about $100/mo if he gets all the govt. rebates and discounts.

Chevy Bolt had its best first quarter ever 9,025 sold, up 54%.

That's a lot of sales especially without any Federal Tax credits to help.
You can buy a brand new Bolt at basically 50% off right now

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.

They have already discontinued it I believe. These numbers are just sales of what was left on dealer lots.

European deliveries - delivery eta is currently starting mid May.

The mache's are currently in Antwerp - at the moment 1500 which arrived in the last couple of weeks. There's 5 to 10 weeks of qc going on including software fixes to the 12v batteries.

And then there's more ships on route to Antwerp right now.

Some of these are orders that were built in December so there's a lot of unhappy customers and many cancellations.

Ford's reputation in the UK has taken a hit because of all the delays and lack of communication. and the price of the mache has gone up due to our idiotic goverment making a sudden decision without thought.

Future sales figures are unlikely to excite until the cheaper electric cars from ford come out due to our government's changes to subsidies.

I suspect the drop in sales is because many Mach e were shipped to Europe this month. This report is only US sales figures.

Isn’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.

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.
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.

it depends on who you ask

Car Depreciation: How Much It Costs You | CARFAX

says 20% then 15% so it would be 70880x0.80x0.85 = 48,198 (or 68% value held overall), but look at the mileage on that car - under 10,000 miles. This is very close to 60% which I guess is in the same ballpark sort of, but with that mileage? feel painful.

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.

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.

Didn’t Ford say they were going to make money from the start on the Mustang Mach E?
