The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric vehicle isn't too far off at this point, but it turns out the U.S. isn't the first market to get Ford's first mass-market EV. Instead, European customers will get their hands on the Mach-E first.*

According to*Mach-E Club*Ford's electrification marketing guru*Jason Mase confirmed a few details of the Mach-E at last week's Chicago Auto Show. Among the details: the Mach-E will go to Europe first. Mase specifically mentioned European markets such as Norway will get the Mach-E first due to higher demand for electric vehicles.*

This isn't entirely surprising given many European nations have stricter emissions standards, driving demand for EV's higher than that of North America.*

While Europe is getting it first, the vast number of U.S. customers who have pre-ordered a Mach-E don't have too long to wait either. Ford says the Mustang Mach-E will begin hitting the U.S. market by the end of this year. Specifically,*First Edition, Premium, Select and California Route 1 models will launch first.*

Those waiting on the hotter Mustang Mach-E GT will have to wait a little longer, though. The 459 horsepower version is expected to go zero to 60 mph in the mid-three second range. Ford says about 30 percent of buyers have opted for the GT.*
