If you made a deposit for your 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, you can now convert your reservation to an order. The company began taking reservations shortly after the model was unveiled during festivities surrounding last year's LA Auto Show. Premium, First Edition, and California Route 1 grades are all expected to be ready for delivery by the end of 2020.

In December, Ford announced that Mach-E First Edition reservations were full.

This March, the company revealed that it had received reservations from buyers in all 50 U.S. states. Customers in the west and southwest, where cities are further apart and commutes are longer make up most of the customers who ordered models targeted to reach an EPA-estimated 300 miles of range and come with rear-wheel drive. California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, and Washington were the states with the strongest sales.

At that time, nearly 30 percent of all Mustang Mach-E reservations were for the Mach-E GT, which will not arrive until mid-2021. The top-tier GT trim level starts at $60,500. For that price, buyers get all-wheel drive, 235 miles of range, 459 horsepower, and 612 pound-feet of torque. There's also 20-inch forged wheels, Brembo brakes, an adaptive Magnaride suspension, and exterior trim upgrades.

More than a quarter of all reservations have come from California.

Just two weeks ago the company announced that the model will be getting the next-generation of Ford Co-Pilot360 safety and driver assistance technology. The system will now allow for hands-free driving, called Active Drive Assist. When it revealed the next-gen 2021 Ford F-150 last week the company shared that the same technology would be available on that model.

A partnership with Electrify America allows Mustang Mach-E owners to receive 250 kilowatt-hours of free charging when they sign up for the service with their Ford Pass app.

The availability of a Cyber Orange paint job for the Mustang Mach-E was recently announced.

Mustang Mach-E starts at $43,895. Place your order for the all-new Mustang Mach-E here.

The Roadster's specs are impressive, to say the least.

Tesla

Elon Musk took to a stage in late 2017 to announce a new product, the second-generation Tesla Roadster, and the numbers were impressive, even for a guy known to casually drop massive bombshells in 160 characters or less on Twitter. He pledged a 620-mile range and a 0-60 mph time in 1.9 seconds for the car – impressive specs, to be sure. When Musk unveiled the car, production was scheduled to commence some time in 2020, but as we all now know, last year wasn't a banner year for car manufacturing. In January, he pushed that date back to 2022, but the timeline has slipped again - into 2023 at this point - and that's only if everything goes smoothly between now and then.

Responding to a tweet on Wednesday, Musk stated that "assuming 2022 is not mega drama, new Roadster should ship in 2023." That's a pretty big asterisk, given how things have been going over the last 18 months. It's not surprising, though, and Musk acknowledges what we've known for some time now: The global supply chain is a mess, thanks to microchip shortages and pandemic-related closures and delays. "2021 has been the year of super crazy supply chain shortages," he said, admitting that "it wouldn't matter if we had 17 new products, as none would ship." Again, it's not surprising, but it is most likely frustrating for reservation holders, who've plopped down anywhere from $50,000 to $250,000 to hold an order for the Roadster.




Tesla is far from being the only automaker to experience delays, but even if we assume that the rest of 2021 and the beginning of 2022 go smoothly, there's still a lot that can happen. All of Tesla's suppliers would have to get their ducks in a row and there can be no COVID-related production delays. That would also peg 2022 as one of the automaker's flagship years for product releases, with both the Semi and Cybertruck on the schedule. It's possible, but far from guaranteed, that all of those pieces fall into place, making Tesla's 2022 a banner year. As for the Roadster, 2023 could be the year that we're all blown away by its range and acceleration, but recent history suggests that anything can happen at any time, so we won't be holding our breath.

The Bronco will get two new colors for 2022.

Ford

The new Ford Bronco was in such high demand that buyers were in for a long wait, even before the pandemic and microchip shortages wreaked havoc on automotive supply chains and production. Even now, with little hope of a speedy vehicle delivery, buyers are still lining up to get the new SUV, and to reward those whose dreams will have to wait until 2022, Ford is debuting two new colors: Eruption Green and Hot Pepper Metallic.

Ford revealed the colors at this year's Woodward Dream Cruise. The first-generation Bronco, which ran from 1966 through 1977, was the featured vehicle at the cruise, which presented the opportunity to introduce new colors for the upcoming model year. The two new colors won't join the Bronco's existing color catalog until order banks open for the new model year later in 2021. Ford says that the current color catalog which includes Antimatter Blue, Lightning Blue Metallic, and Rapid Red Metallic will be available through the end of the 2021 model year.

The new colors may end up being the shades of choice for many current hopeful Bronco buyers. Along with pandemic-related delays, Ford's rollout of the new Bronco has been plagued by hardtop-related cosmetic issues. The problem is big enough for the automaker to replace the top of every hardtop Bronco built so far. This includes vehicles already purchased, the rare few sitting on dealers' lots, and even recently produced vehicles still hanging around the factory. Buyers still waiting for their Broncos to be built will be waiting a while, to the point that Ford says many orders will be pushed into the new model year. Ford is offering Bronco-related merchandise and promises a price lock for all buyers whose orders have been pushed, and now it appears they'll have two new colors to choose from as well.
