Earlier this month, we learned that Ford F-150 Lighting prices were increasing substantially for the 2023 model year – between $6,000 and $8,500, depending on trim. The automaker blamed this move on “significant material cost increases and other factors,” which are also primed to have an impact on 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E pricing, as Michael Martinez of Automotive News has discovered. And just like the F-150 Lightning, the difference in pricing between the 2022 Mach-E and the 2023 model is rather substantial.
|2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Price – August 25||2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Price – August 25||+ / – August 25 Price|
|Select RWD Standard Range||$46,895||$43,895||+$3000|
|Select AWD Standard Range||$49,595||$46,595||+$3000|
|California Route 1 AWD Extended Range||$63,575||$55,475||+$8100|
|Premium RWD Standard Range||$54,975||$49,100||+$5875|
|Premium AWD Standard Range||$57,675||$51,800||+$5875|
|GT AWD Standard Range||$69,895||$61,995||+$7900|
|Extended Range Battery For Premium RWD||$8,600||$6,000||+$2600|
|Destination And Delivery||$1,300||$1,100||+$200|
Price increases for the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E range from $2,600 for the Premium RWD with the extended range battery all the way up to $8,100 for the California Route 1 AWD extended range model. With a $3,000 jump in price, the least expensive Mach-E – the Select RWD standard range – will now cost $46,895, while the most expensive version of the EV crossover – the Mach-E GT – starts out at $69,895, which is $7,900 more than the 2022 model year. Additionally, destination charges have increased by $200 to $1,300.
The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E is receiving a few updates for the new model year, including the addition of the all-new Nite Pony Package, which is available on both the extended-range Premium and GT Performance Edition and adds high-gloss black 19-inch wheels and a black pony front grille emblem for the Premium, as well as high-gloss black 20-inch wheels and a black GT badge for the GT Performance Edition. Both Mach-E Nite Pony Package models get black front and rear lower fascias, black front and rear door cladding, black mirror caps, and black wheel center caps with bright pony graphics. Customers can pair the package with any exterior color available in the Mach-E lineup, too.
Breaking: @Ford announces it’s increasing Mustang Mach-E prices between $3,000 and $8,100, depending on trim, as order banks re-open. It’s also increasing shipping costs by $200 on all models. Here’s the breakdown: pic.twitter.com/1XSsJSDa0J

Additionally, the 2023 Mustang Mach-E will be getting a lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) battery in place of its existing lithium-ion unit at some point in the model year, as Ford Authority reported earlier this month, though that feature apparently won’t be available at launch. Order banks for the 2023 Mach-E are scheduled to open up Tuesday, August 30th, so those interested in securing the now-pricier EV crossover will be able to do so soon.
We’ll have more on the Mach-E soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Mustang Mach-E news and non-stop Ford news coverage.
The more prices increase, the happier I am to hang on to my low-mileage 2020 F-150, and to watch my 2019 Bullitt hold its value so well.
Unless the accessibility and reliability of public charging stations improves substantially, EVs will slowly fade in to obscurity. They may be the “in thing” now, but they may come to a grinding halt in the next 5-10 years. Still way too many drawbacks to EVs to make them viable for a large majority of US drivers.
One of the drawbacks that is becoming glaringly apparent, is price ( because of outrageous price increases, sometimes multiple times a year ).
Tell that to the state of California.
Well for $8000.00 increase and gas selling at $3.65 where I live, I can buy almost 2200 gallons of fuel. My vehicle is a 2022 and gets about 30 mpg, I can drive 66000 miles on just the price increase alone. Figure in my vehicle was 20K less than the basic AWD Select, I am way ahead of the game.
Electric cars are not going to go away. This momentum is unstoppable now, as all major countries and all major manufacturers have committed to it.
lol neither is charging for 20 hours
Where do you get your data? Are you quoting someone who charges on an outdoor 15 amp 115 volt outlet? My Mach E consistently recharges to 100% overnight at home from a 30 amp 240 volt circuit in 5 to 7 hours, adding 34 km (20.7 miles) per hour and depending on how much it has been discharged, usually down to 60%.
The 150 kw DC fast chargers take it from 20% to 80% capacity in about 40 minutes. That is lunch and a washroom break.
With a 10 to 15 percent price increase per year and the loss of the $7500 tax credit the momentum is about to hit a brick wall.
Up to 80k for this? I can buy an escalade or Wagoneer for that price.
Anything going down these days? Oh yes, petrol finally!
There are two things to remember about the F’ing EV’s. First, is still the fact that we have not built a electricity generating station in 30 years, one will take years to build once it gets started (if ever), and there have been NO indications of any permits to build yet . Second, the cost, for these EV’s, will continue to go up (yes, multiple times a year), delivery wait times will soon be in the years and as the brown and blackout’s start, I am sure recharging stations will suffer an epidemic !!!!!!!!!! PLUS, the emissions while creating a battery are horrendous !!!!!!!!!
electricity can come from big solar arrays on top of warehouses and factories, I know this because I worked for a company that deployed these. It can come from wind turbines on windy hills. There are many of these in the USA and Canada and they are quicker to build than big generating stations. Natural gas peaker plants can fill the gaps for now when winds drop and night darkens, I once worked at one of these during its 2 year construction. SMR technology is another direction that may help with demand in the short term.
Second, the EV prices so far have not gone up multiple times a year, increases appear to be tracking with inflation and material costs. The increasing efforts by auto manufacturers and democratic governments to secure reliable sources of materials for batteries not from autocratic countries but free societies like Canada where environmental regulations are tougher on mining and manufacturing emissions.
If the EV industry is, by your estimate, in such a bad place, then why am I seeing more and more Teslas, Mach Es, Polestars and Ioniqs every day?
Mad about this now? Just wait until they start giving EV’s to the under served, disadvantage, people of whatever, protected, etc., because there’s no chance of them affording one.
Free, front of the line, charging also.
That’s a whacky crazy thought, but it’s coming, and Ford will sponsor it as well.
I wanted to buy a 2022 Mach E but the greedy dealers with their markup’s over MSRP priced them out of my range. Now Ford is doing the same thing. I’m now forced to buy one of the Chinese or Vietnamese EV’s. Shame on you Ford!
I can’t see paying so much money for an electric old lady’s car.
The prices are going up because the amount of federal tax credits keep going up. So Ford, like many manufacturers, are sticking it to their customers by increase the sticker prices.
