After routinely selling for more than sticker price as demand exceeded supply, Ford’s all-electric vehicle lineup has since hit a bit of a lull as demand cools off and inventory grows. As a result, we’re starting to see those vehicles get a variety new incentives to entice shoppers, as both the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Ford F-150 Lightning are now eligible for X-Plan pricing, the Mach-E is eligible for both a $3,000 Bonus Cash Offer and a new dealer rental program, and the E-Transit also just received its first-ever zero percent financing offer. While only the F-150 Lightning is currently eligible for the federal clean energy credit, fleets considering the purchase of a 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E will find that a new discount uncovered by CarsDirect makes the EV crossover much more attractive, however.
Officially known as the “Mach-E Early Order Off-Invoice Credit,” this new offer is worth a whopping $7,500 – the biggest discount offered for the EV crossover since its launch for the 2021 model year. According to FoMoCo, “The Early Order Off-Invoice Credit will apply to all eligible unscheduled 24MY Mustang Mach-E orders in the order bank through order receipt date of April 30th, 2024.”
According to this dealer bulletin, all trim levels of the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E are eligible – even the new Rally, it seems – though it’s unclear if the deal applies to both leases and purchases. The paperwork notes that the purpose of this offer is “to help build EV sales momentum for the 2024MY Mustang Mach-E,” which is notable since the EV crossover is no longer eligible for the federal credit, which maxes out at $7,500.
As for who can take advantage of this deal, Ford notes that it’s limited to state and local government fleets, as well as “56A & 56M Commercial” customers. Given the popularity of EVs in that space over the past few months, it may also make the Mach-E a bit more of an attractive purchase, too.
