Dearborn’s Ford Motor Co. has announced its all-electric Mustang Mach-E has drawn reservations from all 50 U.S. states during the first three months of availability.
Ford attributes the broad-based demand to key vehicle attributes like EPA-estimated range and all-wheel drive capability that meet regional customer needs.
A version of a Mustang Mach-E with an extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive has a targeted EPA-estimated 300 miles of range, paying off the spirit of freedom Mustang has sought for the past 55 years. This is an interest to customers in the west and southwest, particularly in California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, and Washington, where demand is highest.
On the other side of the country, all-wheel drive is available for customers due to frigid and snowy weather. Customers from states including Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire have opted for an all-wheel drive model. The Mustang Mach-E all-wheel drive system is also helping to combat the misconception among Americans that electric vehicles can’t handle driving in bad weather.
“Since revealing the Mustang Mach-E last November, we have seen a high level of interest from customers around the world,” says Mark Kaufman, global director of electric vehicle marketing and distribution. “We designed the Mustang Mach-E with the aim to deliver an electric, guilt-free, performance SUV while providing peace of mind through our strong dealership network. Our strategy is working. With reservations from coast to coast in the U.S., we look forward to growing our reservations and delivering this SUV in late 2020.”
FordPass Charging Network, one of North America’s public charging networks, also contributed to the early nationwide recognition of the vehicle with more than 12,500 places to charge, including fast charging sites.
An approximate 30 percent of Mach-E reservations are for GT. It remained steady since its update in December, when it was announced that reservations for the limited first edition are full.
The Mustang Mach-E starts at $43,895 not including the $7,500 tax incentive. Deliveries are expected to begin late 2020. For reservations, click here.
