So, after 100 orders the trends are holding pretty stable:

Premium Model still at an overwhelming 80% of orders --- 80% of 20,000 = 16,000 for N.A.
First Edition Model at 15% of orders or about 3,000 for N.A.
Select Models only 4% or about 800 for N.A.
Ca Rt1 only 1% or about 200 for N.A.

I do think the Select and Ca Rt1 choices are under represented here in this first 100 order listing and will come up a few % --- remember they have until Dec 31 to complete the reservation to order process.
Since FE reservations mostly went to enthusiastic folks, I suggest they probably are over represented in the sample here.

Don't forget the unloved GT. At an estimated 30% of reservations, the non-GT reservations for N.A. are only 14,000 -- not 20,000. (Assuming that Ford does hold that 20/30 split for N.A./E.U.
Yep, that’s a valid point --- GT orders won’t be showing up on this list until at least Dec.
I would guess, the First Edition N.A. orders will all be built before the GT orders are even accepted.

I was able to place my order this morning for a Premium AWD SR in Infinite Blue with an order number of 10031xxx. My only concern is that the next step is for my dealer to accept the order. But they are completely clueless about the Mach E. I called them last week and they said they had zero info about the MME and that orders likely wouldn’t start for at least a year.
Mine just did almost the same thing today after I placed the order. My dealer didn't even know the ordering option was open! I got a call from the online person after placing my order asking what I would like to know about the Mach E and how interested I was in purchasing one. I had to explain to her that it was the order from the Ford website and it was the real thing. She then stated, "really, they're not even on the lot yet".

Also keep in mind that 30% of the reservations Ford has said is for the GT. So if you are reservation holder 50,000 and you ordered a Premium, you are really no worse than #35,000 in line. Probably a little better than that when you factor in some cancellations and some people taking too long to convert their reservation to an order to be in the first batch.

I think a N.A. Premium holder is in a lot shorter line than that. Remember only 20,000 of the first year production are going here and something like 4,000 of them are GT reservations that won’t be delivered until mid 2021.

When they get production cranked up to even close to 1,000 units a week, they will easily push the First Edition’s out in just a few weeks. And the Premium N.A. orders should be done well before the end of the year. I think that is why Ford very recently changed their info that the CA RT1’s and the Selects may have 2020 deliveries instead of 2021.

I agree with your timing.

I do wonder how accurate the original projection of 20k US and 30K to the EU is now. Ford can't really control who orders from where unless they took x number of reservation numbers that are going to EU dealer lots regardless if EU customers preorder them or not. Reservation numbers are now over 70K which of course is over the original 50k max first year production.

Ford has indicated from the start that the 60/40 allocation was driven by EU compliance requirements -- it had nothing to do with volume of pre-orders and was not intended to reflect that much greater demand for the vehicle in the EU.
Therefore, how the orders are playing out shouldn't change that mix. What may change the mix is whether the delay to get MMEs to the EU in 2020 may affect Ford's incentive to push that many vehicles there. In other words, if MMEs can't be delivered into the EU in 2020 anyway, maybe Ford will shift some of that allocation to the U.S. and push for more to the E.U. in the early 2022 model year.

I submitted my order yesterday and my dealer indicated that it was accepted on their end, I don't see that reflected on the website. Should I be worried? I want to do everything I can to get the car as soon as possible.

Thanks
