2023 Mustang Mach-E: Huge $4K Price Cut & More Range!
The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E is receiving some exciting upgrades, particularly in the standard-range models. The standard-range vehicles will be equipped with new batteries that provide slightly enhanced range and charging capabilities, while the all-wheel-drive models are now more potent than ever. Furthermore, the base prices for all Mach-E models have been reduced, which is even more fantastic news.
The Mach-E from Ford now come with an advanced feature called BlueCruise that allows hands-free driving on highways. An initial 90-day trial of this feature comes free with the vehicle, and you can opt for a 3-year subscription for $2,100 after that. The latest version, 1.2, has added the ability to change lanes on the driver's request and adjust lane position to maintain more distance between cars. Ford has also significantly reduced the prices of all Mach-E trims. The Select trim is now $3,000 cheaper, the Premium trim is $4,000 cheaper, the California Route 1 is $1,000 cheaper, and the GT is $4,000 cheaper.
All versions of the vehicle include a destination charge of $1,800. The Select starts at $42,995, the Premium at $46,995, the California Route 1 at $56,995, and the GT at $59,995.
The California Route 1 and GT models are equipped with the extended-range battery and all-wheel-drive as standard features. The Premium variant can also be fitted with the extended-range battery for $7,000. All-wheel-drive can be added to Select and Premium models for $3,000 – the same cost as before. Additionally, customers can currently take advantage of a $3,750 federal EV tax credit for the Mustang Mach-E.
The driving ranges of standard-range models have been increased slightly. The rear-wheel-drive variant now covers 250 miles and the all-wheel-drive model covers 226 miles. This is thanks to new battery packs that use lithium iron phosphate chemistry, which provides benefits like longer lifespan, faster charging, and more charges to 100%. Ford estimates that the new standard-range car with LFP batteries will charge about 5 minutes quicker to 80% than the previous model. These batteries are also used in Tesla's standard-range Model 3s.
The LFP batteries are advantageous for power as they are good at discharging and charging. The standard-range 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E with all-wheel-drive now has a power boost of 45 horsepower, resulting in a total of 311 horsepower.
LFP batteries are a cost-effective and ethical option as they don't rely on costly metals from questionable regimes. However, they may not be suitable for colder temperatures and have lower battery density than NCM batteries. The higher-capacity extended-range Mach-E will still use the older battery chemistry as it provides better performance without affecting their range or power output.
