Ford Mustang Mach-E Prices Rise Dramatically Due To Rising Material Costs
Ford Mustang Mach-E prices have risen significantly in the UK due to rising material and energy costs. The Mach-E originally started at £41,330 ($53,976) in Britain, but if you want to order an entry-level Mach-E Standard Range RWD you’ll now have to pay at least £47,530 £ ($62,074). The £6,200 ($8,097) price hike is partly due to the war in Ukraine, which has led to a shortage of some raw materials.
The extended range RWD Mach-E has gone from £49,980 ($65,273) to £52,080 ($68,016). Meanwhile, the standard AWD range now sells for £54,100 ($70,654), originally £46,650 ($60,924). The extended AWD range will now cost you at least £61,480 ($80,292), down from £57,030 ($74,481). The performance-focused Mach-E GT saw the smallest price increase, rising from £67,225 ($87,795) to £68,030 ($88,847).
The changes went into effect on April 1. Despite the price hikes, Ford told UK outlet AutoCar that demand for the Mach-E remains strong. Ford also cited steel and rising energy prices as key contributors to its decision to raise prices.
As for the United States, no changes have been made at this time. However, the Mach-E appears to be sold out for the 2022 model year in America. Ford’s US site states the following:
“Due to high demand, the current model year is no longer available for retail order. Limited inventory may be available at select dealers. Contact your dealer for more information.”
The Mach-E production line in Cuautitlan, Mexico was shut down in February due to ongoing supply chain issues.
