Great to hear. You can still order by just going to Ford website. If you are outside the US, there is a different process for your country.I am eager to get a Mach E. My current lease doesn't end until July 2021. Is it too early for me to reserve the GT if I am looking for delivery in the summer of 2021? TIA.
The GT will not be available then.Not too familiar with how reservation works...
If the vehicle is ready say... in winter or spring of 2021, does that mean I would have to either buy it or get the deposit refunded, and lose my place in line? Hard for me to guess the inventory on the GT come summer 2021.
The estimate from early reservations was 35% of North American orders were for GTs. The reservations database only shows about 8%. If we assume 20% of NA orders are GTs, out of 20,000 NA vehicles, that's 4,000 2021 GTs. Even if it's 35% that's 7,000. If they keep production at 1,300 cars per week, the whole GT run will only take 3-6 weeks.Based on the fact they have moved the delivery date expectation to late summer, and you would be presumably behind anyone else whose already reserved the GT you wouldn't likely get it until late 2021.
However Ford has never given any indication on how many reservations or orders have been placed for the Mach E never less the GT version.
So really, who knows.
Have you reserved one yet? If so, the date or number of your reservation will help on the guess.I am going to get a Premium so any guesses for last quarter of 2021?
Don't really know, but typically Sep-Nov would be the start of the next model year. I would guess getting one of the first 2022's would fit that timing.Yeah, me, too. My lease is up 10/2021. Would like delivery between 9/2021 and 11/2021. Before the snow flies!
I realize it would be a guesstimate but it would give me an idea. I'd work with my dealer once I get ready to order.
First... Welcome!I'm new here and have a similar question as to timing on when to order a Select. I also have a lease that expires July 2021 (although I believe I can do a three-month extension) and I'm getting the impression that I should probably be moving now. Until finding this forum, I must admit to being *completely* uninformed about the process for getting in line--I've been absorbing a lot, but there's also a lot to learn so I appreciate the guidance.
My guess would be to watch and wait for a while. If you order now, your Select might arrive early in the year. Placing an order sometime in the October to December timeframe might be best. I certainly think all non-GTs will be produced by June or July.First... Welcome!
Trying to time it for a July delivery is a tricky one. My gut feel from what we've seen so far is that placing an order now would probably show up before July. It's also possible that all reservations will have been filled by then and people will just be able to walk in and buy from lot inventory in July.
But OTOH, if the Mach-e proves to be a hot commodity (and it appears it could be), there could be orders rolling in every month, and they could end up selling out all 50,000 2021's before July.
A typical next model year release is around September, but that can easily shift many months +/- for a specific model. We really have no idea what that will be for the 2022 Mach-e. Or whether they'll have online reservations for it. I've assumed that was just for this 1st-year release, but Ford probably doesn't even know that yet.
I'd probably just keep following info here, and when it gets closer, start talking to your dealer.
