Ford Mustang Mach E Nearly Sold Out, 83% Reserved

by Denis Gurskiy

When Ford decided to use the Mustang name for an electric crossover, there was some concern that the electric car would not have the support, but it seems like those concerns were overblown as reservation numbers continue to climb.

The Ford Mustang Mach E is looking to be a great addition to the electric car ecosystem and will look to do battle with other electric crossovers such as the Tesla Model Y and Hyundai Kona Electric.

Ford has stated that they will produce 50,000 of the Mustang Mach E for the first year. Thankfully the reservation numbers seem to be in sequential order, so we are able to track how many Mach Es have been reserved based on who has the highest number.

Users at the Mach E Club have been doing just that and posting their reservation numbers to better gauge where Ford is at with reservations. The lastest user to post his reservation number was 414XX, meaning that about 83% of Mach Es have been accounted for.

Keep in mind that these are simply reservations and can indeed be canceled. But given the fact that we are already in the 40,000 range of reservations with the car still many months away is a good sign that Ford will be able to sell out their first-year run, even with accounting for the number of people that reserved and won’t end up buying.

Reservations for 41,500 Mustang Electrics (.83% x 50,000 Production Plan) pales when compared with the 435,000 down payments that TESLA’s Model 3 gathered within days of its introduction. Ford may be excited to have reached 83% but more than likely, they knew that they would be lucky to sell 50,000 cars. Frankly, the the Mustang Electric fares poorly in comparison with the Model 3, and how many potential buyers will overlook that they would be limited to short trips without access to the TESLA nationwide fast-charge system? As reality hits the ICE-aged manufacturers that they are facing a KODAK time in their history, watch them begin to lobby the government for “full compatibility with and access to all (read TESLA) charging systems.

The two cars reach an entirely different audience. Ford has never attempted to sell cars online before this as their customers are still used to the traditional dealership experience. You have to understand, Ford already sells millions of cars annually. All they have to do is convert their already existing customer.

Through partnerships, Ford’s charging network is already close in size to Tesla’s. The Supercharger Network is just one of many fast charging networks out there.
