Following multiple rounds of price increases, the Ford Mustang Mach-E received a new lithium-iron phosphate battery pack for 2023 standard range models, which corresponded with a round of price cuts for the EV crossover. Since then, production of the Mach-E has ramped up significantly, which – coupled with a drop in demand – has led to a bit of an inventory glut. Thus, it was no surprise to see the Ford Mustang Mach-E get a round of discounts last month, and now, even dealer staff are receiving incentives if they purchase one as well, according to a memo recently seen by CarsDirect.
This new incentive applies to dealer employees that are eligible for the company’s D-Plan, which is a form of Ford Plan Pricing that offers some of the very best discounts available. As part of this new promotion, those employees can score a four percent MSRP discount on the Ford Mustang Mach-E, as well as a $2,500 cash incentive – otherwise known as “AZD RCL Cash” (A, Z, and D-Plan Pricing, plus Red Carpet Lease incentives) – now through September 4th, 2023.
The only catch is that employees wanting to take advantage of this offer will have to pay a $375 fee, but otherwise, it seems like a fairly attractive deal. Opting for a fully-loaded Mach-E GT Performance Edition with its $70k MSRP would give eligible employees a discount of around $2,800 – plus the $2,500 bonus cash for a total of $5,300 off sticker.
Those eligible for the $3,750 federal tax credit could potentially save even more money when buying a new Ford Mustang Mach-E, not to mention those that live in states like California, which offer their own clean energy credits, which could save them thousands more off the purchase of a new EV crossover, too.
