Ford has priced its all-electric Mustang Mach-E at $52,345, including delivery, and it won’t qualify for federal green incentives.
The base price is $50,495, before delivery and fees.
Electric vehicles eligible for up to $5,000 must have six seats or fewer and a base-model trim with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of fewer than than $45,000.
The car will qualify for provincial rebates in B.C. and Quebec, where owners can receive $3,000 and $8,000, respectively.
The 480-kilometre-range crossover, offered in rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions, is Ford's answer to Tesla, General Motors and others that beat it to market with a long-range EV. It will be built in Mexico, at the automaker's Cuautitlan assembly plant that used to manufacture the Fiesta sedan.
The Mustang Mach-E’s all-wheel-drive system is proving popular with customers in Canada, where the automaker says close to 90 per cent of reservations include the option.
Ford Canada in December confirmed to Automotive News Canada that all First Editions were sold out in Canada. However, the automaker didn’t say how many total reservations have been placed. Deliveries are set to begin in late in 2020.
