Hello, I’m in wave 2 according to my dealer. If we are assuming Ford is going to stick to the 2 week rollout for each wave, that would set me up to order at some point next week. Today, I received a pre-approved for 85K in financing from Ford. The timing was curious but also got my hopes up.

As anyone else received this email? Perhaps some people in wave 1 can share if they did or not?

I received a pre-approval email as well (3:54 pm EST). I am 5th at my dealer but hear crickets the two times I tried to email them. Have now idea if I am in wave 2. That email makes me hopeful though

I'm in Albuquerque and spoke to dealer about current notifications. They said 3 at this time. If that is an indication then let's presume 5/wave, 10/month, and don't think I'll be in this year due to # 8# on list.

Same here. I ordered the morning after the reveal. The approved amount was vastly more than I intend to spend on any car let alone a Ford. Not saying anything bad about Ford, I love the brand and am a loyal customer but sheesh.

Also received. I just think it's a more graceful alternative than revising their ridiculous pricing model, which poses the quandary: 2 Sr pros or 1 er xlt (~same cost w/ incentives)?

Hi SCV, I received a pre-approval email as well yesterday. I reserved mine on May 21st here in Michigan. I’m going to call my dealership tomorrow to see if they know what my timeframe to order is.

I received one as well. I'm wondering if it's an indication that we'll make the 2022 cut or is it for everyone who reserved a Lightning.

I received one today. I received one when my Mustang Mach E reservation was nearing conversion to an order as well.

I think it’s just a marketing thing. I hope it means I am about to get waved in, but I think it’s just marketing. Also, what was that last financing option, is it kind of like lease payments and then at year 4 we owe a huge lump sum or trade the equity in on another?

Curious what kind of financing options were available on the Mach E if you don’t mind sharing
