Ford has raised the prices for the all-electric Mustang Mach-E in Germany substantially - by up to 9,000 euros for the base version, which now costs at least 56,500 euros compared to the previous 47,500 euros and thus no longer qualifies for the full amount of the environmental bonus.
This means that the net list price for the E-SUV from the American manufacturer is now above the limit of 40,000 euros. For this reason, the Mustang Mach-E is no longer fully eligible for subsidies in Germany, as it was previously, but only qualifies for the reduced subsidy rate of 5,000 euros from the state and 2,500 euros net (2,975 euros gross) manufacturer's share in all variants. In other words, the car has not only become more expensive, but at the same time the subsidy is reduced by 1,775 euros.
Ford also gives its customers an indication in the configurator of when they will receive their car. The delivery time is now up to 28 weeks, depending on the variant - provided there are no further delays, a car ordered this week would be delivered at the end of October. So there is still some breathing space until the end of the year - when, as we know, the environmental bonus in its current form expires - but, as with Tesla, customers can shorten the delivery time if they order a more expensive variant with extras at extra cost.
A comparison of the individual drive variants shows that the price increase is higher for the cheaper variants than for the more expensive ones. The rear-wheel drive model with standard range battery has become more expensive by the aforementioned 9,000 euros. The rear-wheel drive model with extended range battery is now 8,200 euros more expensive (from 54,750 euros to 62,950 euros), while the all-wheel drive model with small battery, which previously cost the same, has increased by 7,500 euros (from 54,750 euros to 62,250 euros).
