The entry price for the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV in the UK has been hiked up by more than £6000. The Ford Mustang Mach-E now starts at £47,530, up from its original launch price of £41,330.
This means that now only a single Mach-E is available for under £50,000 with the Standard Range RWD, as the Extended Range RWD is now priced from £52,080, up from £49,980. The reason Ford cites for the price increase is that “significant commodity costs and prices of raw materials such as steel and the rising price of energy” have made production more expensive.
In addition, the invasion of Ukraine has also resulted in issues beyond sharply rising energy costs, as, for example, Volkswagen has had to put the ID.5 production on hold due to missing wire harnesses. Further, the German automobile manufacturer was far from the only company affected by the conflict.
Two days ago, Ford also raised Mustang Mach-E prices in Germany, going up to 56,500 euros compared to previously 47,500 euros, which also means that the vehicle no longer fully qualifies for the German environmental bonuses.
