This is great news for reservation holders.
Those who preordered a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of their new electric car. Even with a new F-150 launching this year, the Mach-E could be the most important product launch for the Blue Oval in 2020. The Mach-E will reportedly go on sale in the next couple of months, but leaked documents already suggest that Ford will offer discounts and incentives. Now, a new report from the MachEForum suggests that the Mach-E will cost less than expected.
A leaked document sent to Ford EV certified dealerships shows that all 2021 Mach-E Mustang trim levels besides the GT will receive a price drop. The price reductions range from $1,000 to $3,000, which is great news for all Mach-E reservations holders.
In the memo to dealerships, Ford advises them to "reach out to existing Mach-E order and reservation holders to communicate price reduction." It also states that reservation holders will receive an alert of the price drop on September 29. The full breakdown goes as follows:
The smallest price drop of $1,000 applies to the Select RWD and Select AWD trims, which drop to $42,895 and $45,595, respectively. If you ordered a Mach-E CA Route 1, it drops by $2,000 to $49,800. Both the Premium RWD and Premium RWD models receive the most considerable discount of $3,000. This now prices them at $47,000 and $49,700, respectively.
Ford recently reopened orders for the Mach-E First Edition after it quickly sold out. Even this limited edition model sees a price decrease of $1,000, now priced at $58,300. None of these discounts are major, but it's still great news for an already exciting new car. We don't think this small increase is enough to entice people into buying their first EV, but if someone was already on the fence, it could push them over the edge.
