The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition Is Officially Sold Out
Fear not, more versions are available.
Badging the first examples of a new car as special launch editions has become common practice, especially when there's a certain amount of hype involved. Toyota did it with the new Supra, Jeep did it with the Gladiator pickup truck, and Ford offered the same thing with a limited run of First Editions of the new Mustang Mach-E. Now, just six weeks after that last model's reveal, the order books for the 2021 Ford Mach-E First Edition are full. Ford declined to say how many First Editions were going to be made, but it did share some interesting stats on the preorders.
The Mach-E isn't Ford's first attempt at an EV, but it's no doubt the Blue Oval's biggest attempt to take a chunk of Tesla's market share so far. Reserving a First Edition required a $500 deposit, and apparently enough people did it to sell out Ford's allocation of the introductory model. A vast majority of the reservations were specified with the Extended Range Battery. That means buyers will get 270 to 300 miles of range, depending on whether they opt for all-wheel drive or not.
Speaking of AWD, just over half of the orders—about 55 percent according to Ford—also chose AWD, although there's no word on more specific combinations such as which number of AWD reservations also went for the bigger battery. Carbonized Gray has proven to be the most popular color so far, making up 38 percent of reservations. Grabber Blue Metallic was a close second at 35 percent, and Rapid Red made up the last 27 percent of orders.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, more than a quarter of all the reservations made so far have come from California alone. Looks like the Mustang/West Coast love affair is still a winner. For those in California—or those that want a Golden State-flavored pony car—the California Route 1 edition is still available. In fact, if you were hoping to get your hands on one of the first Mach-E electric SUVs, hope is not lost. There are four other trims that interested buyers can still put down a $500 deposit on, including the performance-oriented GT and the Premium edition. Though Ford wouldn't share how many First Editions it's building, a spokesperson did say the automaker will limit sales of the Mach-E to 50,000 units globally for the first 12 months of production.
