Ford drops Mustang Mach-E price and updates battery, increasing range for 2023

Ford is re-opening its order banks for the all-electric Mustang Mach-E on Wednesday, with the production ramp-up taking place in the second half of 2023. Ford aims to scale electric vehicles and make them more accessible and affordable for customers by offering EV customers the F-150 Lightning full-size truck and the E-Transit van.

To power the new Mustang Mach-E standard range models, lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries will be used, which can boost the eAWD configuration by 45 horsepower and improve the EPA range estimates. The models are expected to have a targeted range of 250 miles for RWD and 226 miles for eAWD, and with the ability to charge more frequently to 100% via AC home charging and DC fast charging time for 80% battery capacity reduced to 33 minutes.

Customers who purchase a Mustang Mach-E will be able to experience BlueCruise with a complimentary 90-day trial, and all vehicles will have the necessary hardware for the capability. This allows customers to try the technology during the initial months of ownership and subsequently activate it through a subscription at their convenience. BlueCruise 1.2 has new features, such as hands-free lane changes and In-Lane Repositioning ability, which have been developed by Ford’s in-house team dedicated to improving the system.

With 199,000 Ford and Lincoln vehicles in North America equipped with BlueCruise, customers have driven over 70 million hands-free miles. The Mustang Mach-E, which now offers an optional Comfort Package Lite and new 19-inch Shadow-Silver painted aluminum wheels with high gloss black-painted aero covers for Premium models, could potentially qualify for an Inflation Reduction Act federal tax credit of $3,750 in 2023.

The Mustang Mach-E offers over-the-air software updates, including news and video apps now available as standard on all vehicles, accessible via the SYNC screen while parked.
