Going, going, gone. Or is it?
***UPDATE: Ford contacted InsideEVs to provide some clarification on this. According to Ford:
Customer reservation numbers for Mustang Mach-E are not sequential production numbers. We are not sharing detail on total numbers of reservations at this time other than that the limited edition First Edition reservations bank is full and we expect around 50,000 global sales of Mach-E in the first 12 months of production. All other derivatives remain available to order.
It seems some 50,000-plus Ford Mustang Mach-E reservations have now been placed. That's 100% of the first-year production run of 50,000 units. For Ford, this is a solid number, though we should note that Tesla Model 3, Model Y and Cybertruck reservations were/are all way higher. Like by several orders of magnitude.
Let's remember that an order, in this case, is really just a refundable deposit ($500) at this point in time. Tesla's refundable deposit varies depending on the model, but in the case of the Cybertruck, where some 500,000 reservations are claimed, just $100 gets you a place in line.
According to MachEClub.com:
Data crowdsourced by members of the Mach-E community and shared today on MachEClub.com reveals that the total reservations for the Mach-E have surpassed 50,000. Although Ford has not released an official tally, the Mach-E enthusiast community has been keeping track.
Ford has officially stated that the first year of production of Mach-E is limited to 50,000 units for all markets globally. Today's update means that Ford has likely now fully accounted for the first year of production.

When it arrives in late 2020, the Mustang Mach-E will be available with standard and extended-range battery options with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive powered by permanent magnet motors. Equipped with an extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, Mach-E has a targeted EPA-estimated range of at least 300 miles. That's right up there in Model Y territory.
