I would hope no one pays ADM to any dealer.
I have an unused First Edition in the Midwest.I also went in and met with my Ford dealer today and they were very friendly and accommodating but the ordering program
for the Mach-E is just not up to speed yet, at least for inputting a First Edition.
He found my reservation OK and was able to bring up the K3S code needed but not the 301A Code also required for the FE --- Codes only went to 300A.
They are OK with X-Plan pricing but Ford doesn’t show the Mach-E on the approved list yet.
It’s not on the unqualified list like the Shelby and Raptor either so Ford probably just has not listed it yet.
Anybody have a link to X-Plan pricing documents or web site that has the Mach-E listed on it?
He didn’t want a deposit on the order --- said if I decided not to keep it he would probably buy it himself.
He had wanted to reserve one last Nov in this same Grabber Blue when they were available, but his wife was concerned about it’s range.
This by the way was the Head General Sales Manager with 36 sales consultants under him,
although I would guess over 90% of their sales here are trucks. Trucks are King here in South Dakota.
Me too, i am worry because of long weekend this week they may will not finish transfer until next weekDay three since calling Marketing, still no new email from Ford on the switch to the new dealer. Checked my reservation site, shows original dealer.
Based on what I heard from the Cuautitlan plant, September is possible but not likely. They may start producing in August but not sure if they will make it through full assembly, approval, and shipping by September. It's a wonderful thought, though. I have a wedding to drive to in NY in early October and would love to take the e-pony!Update on my order... Went into my dealer today while I had my car in for service. A salesman and I had planned to meet to review my Mach E order in person. They had 4 other reservation customers that wanted them to complete their orders and I was the first they were getting to. Even though I confirmed my order on 6/28 online, they had not finalized it. A brief printout was presented to me with the wrong color interior. They had manually input my specs in and made a mistake. I corrected them, and added the interior protection package for $240 (some kind of durable mats). I signed the form when correct, and when I got home my status for the order states "order accepted" in my ford.com account.
On my way out I was discussing with my service guy that I just finalized a Mach E order. He was quite excited. He told me that he heard they were pushing to ship cars in September because of the excitement to get these launched and on the road. My salesman couldn't even tell me that or any other good juicy gossip about the car. They're all just a bit lost in the dealerships. But it seems like the service people are more into the details about what's happening. He also said don't be surprised if the dealer asks to keep the car locked and roped off in the showroom for a few days after it gets here.
Be careful, don’t want to outshine the bride!Based on what I heard from the Cuautitlan plant, September is possible but not likely.

Ford is now stating that they will start US deliveries of all models except the GT in late 2020. A reservation within a week of the launch could mean a 2020 delivery.I have reserved a select 1 week after the launch and I was in the impression to not expect my car before next summer. Am I to pessimist? I heard people just reserving there premium and expecting to get it by January.
