Ford has temporarily removed the entry-level version of the Mustang Mach-E, the Select, from its website. According Teslarati, a spokesperson for the automaker explained that since the reopening of the order bank, “customer demand for the Mustang Mach-E has exceeded forecasts for some models”. The spokesperson went on to say that demand for the Select was well above expectations, and so “to further help manage supply constraints and provide more predictable order-to-delivery lead times”, Ford has halted base model commands.

That means the cheapest Mach-E is now the Premium, which starts at $54,975. Two other models are still available to order, the $63,575 California Route 1 and the performance-focused $69,895 GT. This comes after Ford raised the price of the F-150 Lightning, with the electric truck now starting at $53,000.

While some may be annoyed that you can no longer buy a Mach-E for less than $50,000, the Premium version comes with plenty of amenities and is arguably still good value at $54,975. Metallic paint, a panoramic roof, 19-inch alloys and Ford BlueCruise are all standard. However, you have to pay an extra $2,700 for all-wheel drive. In the meantime, if you want to upgrade from a 70kWh battery to a 91kWh unit, you’ll have to shell out $8,600, which will increase your Mach-E’s range from 247 to 306 miles according to the EPA.

Current lead times for Premium are 18 to 30 weeks. As for the California Route 1 and GT variants of the Mach-E, both have standby times of 18 to 22 weeks.
