I ordered mine for a Premium RWD on 03/13/21. But as of today I still have not received the Build date yet. So I contact to my local dealer and talked to the sales manager. He told me they are going to have 3 more new shipment on 04/17 for their stocks. If I interested I can switch my online order with their new stocks. So I did and I just processed all purchase agreement this morning then by the time the car arrive on 04/17 I can just pick it up and all documents has been processed. I am glad I contacted my dealer so I dont have to wait for 12 weeks. Now I will have my Mac-E in 2 weeks instead.
So if you guys have a same situation like me I would suggest contact to your local dealer and ask if they will have the shipment coming then trade with your online order.

Ordered mine 3/7/21, and got my order number. I'm hoping towards end of the year. We'll see.

Added my entry. Ordered 3/20, Infinite Blue Premium RWD EXT
And now the agonizing wait...
This will be my first American car, all previous were Japanese.
I ordered an identical build on 3/15. I'd be very curious when you get a build date. If you don't mind, keep me posted, and I'd be glad to do the same.

Can anyone explain to me why Ford is shipping the Mach-E to dealerships, when they have customers ready to buy waiting six month for a vehicle.

I didn't know they were shipping to dealers for retail sale. I assumed all the cars offered were from orders that were cancelled. I'd like to hear if they've opened this up for dealers to order directly for retail sale.

If you figure out any of Ford’s hidden mysteries please share. They seem to have a program dedicated to alienating as many customers as possible.

Using the VIN tracker on this site I have identified several that say they are stock orders. I have also noticed that some VINs are not recognized by the tracker. Not sure why that is.

If they're stock orders that really ticks me off too! Every time I check the VIN orders it lists the person's name who initially ordered the car. A few times I couldn't find the VIN (my VIN won't come up on our VIN checker anymore) but does on Ford's Order Tracker. If you have the order number in addition to VIN number check Ford's Order Tracker; it's more accurate and you'll find out who ordered the car.

The first one is almost a carbon copy of my order. The only difference is the interior protection package.

These two don't have a production date yet:

The first one, which is already on the way, is RWD/SR/IB/OB.
The other two are AWD/ER/IB/SG.

Incredible! We're waiting months and they just jump the line. What's wrong with this picture???!!! I wish I had some clout at Ford but we're just dumb customers I guess with no recourse.

It certainly seems like Ford could at least give us dates. I'd rather not deal with the dealer that is getting the one that has already been shipped, but I might if it's going to be 6 months until I get the car I ordered.

I have a theory that GM managed to plant some people in the Ford team that planned the MME rollout.

I’m only half kidding.
