The Ford Mustang Mach-E is one of the few vehicles on the market today that really excites me. It is a compelling vehicle that puts a tingle down my neck. The good news is that it just got a bit cheaper.

Ford cut the price of a couple of versions of the Ford Mustang Mach-E earlier today. The Mustang Mach-E Premium’s price dropped by $3,000 and is now at $47,000 (before the $7,500 federal EV tax credit). The Mustang Mach-E First Edition, a somewhat more spiced up version of the Mach-E Premium, saw a price cut of $1,000 instead. Or, as some have explained, the base price still dropped by $3,000 but the FE package increased by $2,000.

What’s the reason for the price drop? According to Ford, it is in a “segment that is seeing dynamic pricing changes.” Some have taken that to mean there are some consumer demand concerns. It appears that most fans on a Mustang Mach-E forum thread who have commented on the reason behind the price drop, however, see it as a direct response to the Volkswagen ID.4’s, which was recently unveiled and had a lower price than many had expected.

One commenter even stated ID.4 reservations sold out in one day, indicating quite a lot of demand for the newer, cheaper.

Something else slid out along with the price cut — specific numbers for the vehicles’ acceleration from 0 mph  to 60 mph.

  • Select: 5.8 seconds (RWD), 5.2 seconds (AWD)
  • Route 1: 6.1 seconds (RWD)
  • Premium: 6.1 seconds (ER RWD), 4.8 seconds (ER AWD), 5.8 seconds (SR RWD), 5.2 seconds (SR AWD)
    FE: 4.8 seconds (ER AWD)

My calculations will need to be adjusted a bit, but the general story is the same as it was before — the Mustang Mach-E is a much better vehicle than a Ford Escape at a lower total cost of ownership.
