Ford reopened U.S. order banks on Tuesday, Aug. 30, for the Mustang Mach-E with updated pricing and features as it continues to increase production for the all-electric SUV. Ford’s U.S. electric vehicle sales were up 168.7% in July with the Mustang Mach-E up 74.1%.

Back in September of 2021, Ford announced it would send a police-marked version of the all-electric Mustang Mach-E to the Michigan State Police Vehicle Evaluations. It would be the first electric vehicle to be tested at the annual event. The Mach-E achieved the fastest 0-60 mph and 0-100 mph at 4.03 seconds and 11.94 seconds.

Starting in the fall, premium models built with the extended range battery will have a targeted EPA-estimated range of 290 miles on all-wheel drive models, up 13 miles.  

Ford Co-Pilot360 Driver Assist Technology is now standard across Mustang Mach-E across the lineup. On select models, Ford BlueCruise hands-free driving and 360-degree camera are available for a 90-day trial period for customers to experience the feature before choosing to enable it for a longer duration.

“Adding Ford Co-Pilot360 Driver Assist Technology to the entire Mustang Mach-E line up gives more customers access to services like BlueCruise hands-free driving and future ADAS services through Ford Power-Up software updates,” Marin Gjaja, chief customer officer, Model e, said. “We’re sharing these changes ahead of re-opening order banks on Tuesday so customers can understand the feature and pricing adjustments around ordering a Mustang Mach-E.”

Available on Premium models with Extended Range Battery and GT Performance Edition is the new Mustang Nite Pony Package, which features high-gloss black 19-inch wheels and a black pony, black front and rear lower fascia, door cladding, and black mirror caps on the grille to set the Premium apart, while the GT Performance Edition adds 20-inch high-gloss black wheels and black GT badge. Customers can pair any Mustang Mach-E exterior color with the Nite Pony Package.

Customers can choose two new colors from the eight available on Mustang Mach-E – carbonized gray metallic and vapor blue metallic. The two new additions replace dark matter gray metallic and iced blue silver metallic.

California Route 1, previously available as either a rear-wheel or electric all-wheel drive option, is now available only as an all-wheel drive option.

The panoramic fixed-glass roof is now standard on GT and GT Performance Edition, replacing the black painted roof.

According to a release, "Ford is adjusting the MSRP on the Mustang Mach-E due to material cost increases, continued strain on key supply chains, and rapidly evolving market conditions, and will continue to monitor pricing across the model year."

The adjusted MSRP went into effect for new orders placed on Tuesday. Customers who have existing, unscheduled 2022 Model Year orders will receive a private offer to convert to a 2023 Model Year.
