Ford has now started accepting a $500 reservation for its first all-electric SUV, the Mustang Mach-E,media reported. But as the launch in Los Angeles on Sunday night, Ford is a long way from delivering the new car.
For now, consumers can access Ford’s Mach-E booking website, where they can configure the interior, body color, battery pack specifications and more.
The Mach-E currently sells for $43,895 ($44,995) in the lowest-priced version (plus transportation costs) and has a standard configuration of 255 horsepower output, a 75.7kWh standard battery life pack, and a 230-mile range. But given the federal government’s $7,500 tax credit, that figure could drop to $37,495 for consumers there. Ford said in a press release that it expects the Mach-E full tax credit to last about a year.
The most expensive version is the $616,000 Mustang Mach-E GT, which comes with a battery-life boost and performance kit that allows it to accelerate 100 km in 3 seconds.
Ford said Mach-E delivery won’t start until the end of 2020, while some models, such as the GT, will be late and may wait until spring 2021.
