2023 model arrives with some minor changes and some big price hikes
CoPilot360 driver assistance now standard
The good news is that Ford has re-opened the order banks for the Mustang Mach-E EV. The bad news? It’s going to be more expensive than before, in some cases by as much as $8,300.
Supply chain issues haven’t gotten better, metals used in the construction of parts like the motor and battery have gone up, and, well, probably a little bit of the model selling lot hotcakes have all played a role. The first two are the official reasons, and the third sounds a lot like Ford’s “rapidly evolving market conditions” as its own explanation.
Still, the increase doesn’t come with nothing for the owner. Ford Co-Pilot360 driver assistance tech is now standard across the line. Ford BlueCruise hands-free driving assistant is also offered on some trims, with a 90-day free trial.
Also new are a pair of additional paint colours and a Nite Pony Package that comes with black emblems, 19-inch wheels, and more black trim. California Route 1 is now AWD only, and the fixed glass roof is standard on GT and GT Performance.
Base price for the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E is now $46,895. That’s $3,200 more than last year for the version with a single rear motor and 70 kWh battery pack. The Select AWD standard range is $49,595. At the top of the range is the GT Extended, now $69,895. That’s $8,100 more than last year. Add the Performance Pack and you’re up to $75,985. In the middle, California Route 1 gets the highest increase, up $8,300 to $63,575.
The new pricing takes effect with orders placed starting Tuesday. If a customer has an existing order for a 2022 that hasn’t been delivered, Ford will reach out with an offer to convert to a 2023.
