Mustang Mach Order Placed

Recommended Posts

I converted my Mach E reservation to an order.  Premium trim, Extended range battery, AWD and Infinite Blue Metallic with space gray interior. Now it remains to be seen how Ford will set production order. First Edition will be among the first produced and Premium trim prioritized  over Select trim.  How will they schedule higher reservation numbers who order early vs a lower reservation number who waits to convert his reservation to an order?  Also where in the schedule will they make the European model?  I have a 331xx (higher) reservation number so do not know if that means late 2020 or early 2021. The Cuautitlan plant should be able to produce the 50,000 cars in much less than 12 months if batteries and parts can be supplied in a timely manner.  The plant is rumored to start full production in August.  I'm starting to get excited!

Congrats on the Mach E order!  I haven't seen a definite JOB1 start date stated as of yet.

Per Friday's FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin), here's the production timetable for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E.

 

  • 06/22/2020 - 2021MY Order Bank Open Date
  • 08/20/2020 - 2021MY Scheduling Begins
  • 10/26/2020 - 2021MY Job #1 Date

With a Job #1 Date on 10/26/2020 and the usual slow production ramp up with a new model, especially with all the media attention expected for the Mach-E, vehicles probably won't start to arrive at dealerships until at least mid-December or later. As such, I'm surprised they don't introduce the Mach-E as a 2022MY which would be easy.

I understood that it was in October, just didn't have the 26th as the start date.  Thanks for claifying that.

Ford is bad about new model JOB1 and dealer fulfillments.  Ford generally holds the first batches produced back many weeks - sometimes even months.  I hope that's not the case for the Mach E.

What does Job1 date mean?  Does that imply all production glitches have been worked out and they are ready for full scale production?  They must have done a few test runs before then.  Just curious and anxious.

The Job #1 Date is the production start date for the new Model Year.

It’s just the start date.  The factory must build for 5 straight days with no major errors before they start shipping.  Might take 5 or 6 days, might take a month.
