If you are thinking of buying a 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E in the select or premium trim in the next few months, you may want to order sooner rather than later.
According to Ford Authority, the Detroit-based automaker plans to close the order book for the Ford Mustang Mach-E Select on March 1 and Premium trim on March 2. However, the California Route 1 and GT trims will remain open.
This will not be a permanent closure, as sources confirm Ford plans to reopen order banks in May for both trims.
The order book closure is not surprising given the increased demand nationwide and Ford’s current supply chain constraints. On top of supply chain concerns, Ford is also amid a production ramp-up at the Cuautitian Assembly plant but is not where it wants to be yet in terms of production.
The increased demand for the vehicle comes from two specific sources. First, Ford has dropped the MRSP of the Mustang Mach-E, and the car is now under the expanded $7,5000 federal EV tax credit scheme.
Ford has not officially confirmed the news, but sources expect that to come early next week.
