Ford reportedly stopped taking orders for two Mustang Mach-E versions due to excessive demand. According to Ford Authoritywhose site sources are “familiar with the matter”, the Blue Oval will not take any new orders for the Premium and California Route 1 trim levels for the remainder of the 2022 model year.
Frustratingly, this means Mach-E buyers will only be able to get the extended-range battery by purchasing the $61,995 GT. The Select version only comes with the Standard Range package, although you can get it in RWD or AWD trim.
The Select Mach-E starts at $43,895 in RWD spec, while all-wheel drive can be had for an additional $2,700. Buyers can still equip features like Ford’s CoPilot360 (via the $3,200 comfort/technology pack), but only black interior trim is available.
The ongoing shortage of semiconductors likely played a key role in Ford’s decision. The brand has already experienced production problems this year. Last month, Mach-E production was temporarily halted due to supply chain issues.
The Mach-E has been a solid seller for Ford since its first market launch in December 2020. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and chip shortage, Ford still managed to sell 27,140 Mach-Es to the US alone. United States last year.
