So was just doing my usual check of the Ford UK Website, and I noticed on the Mach-E vehicle comparison page it says delivery is now “Spring 2021” :(

This is a change from the previous “Early 2021” which kinda inferred Jan - March timeframe. This new text makes me think April - May.

You could say “Well that’s just for new orders” - “they’re bound to be later” - but it’s showing Spring on the First Edition models as well which have been sold out for reservations since last January.

I do sincerely hope I’m wrong on this!

Yes i saw this the other day too. At least it gives time for more manufacturers to launch their models and see what alternatives there are.

I noticed this the other day also. I have it on good authority that the 'spring 2021' date is for NEW preorders only. Existing preorders are still being planned for delivery 'early 2021'. No idea on what/when the line was drawn between existing/new preorders. I supposed we will just have to wait and see.

Well guys, after having had my preorder in the system for 5 months I have finally heard from my dealer, albeit after firing off a rant on their website. Turns out ,so they say, that when Ford passed on my details to them they misspelled my email address so consequently they haven't been able to send me updates. Just seems odd that I have been getting one or two emails from Ford. Never mind, I'm confirmed as being in their system which is good and with the right configuration. Bring it on.

I’ve not heard anything from my dealer. Think I’ll call them in the morning...... so did you get any useful updates? I’m guessing prob not!

Last time I spoke to my UK dealership they were super lovely, and told me that my order was pre-loaded into the proper ordering system, but didn't have any firm news on when the next steps might happen. They seemed pretty clued up, and thankfully because our deposits from ford.co.uk website were actually processed by the dealership, we don't have the complication of money being refunded and recharged like they do in the USA.

Just seems like a waiting game right now - everything has gone quiet - the website isn't being messed with regularly like it was before. Hopefully something is imminent.

Didn't get anything that I didn't already know unfortunately. Just happy that they finally got in touch.
