Ford didn’t get to be so big by producing expensive cars, and while the Mach E’s not cheap, neither is it expensive compared to its key rivals. With a starting price of just over £40,000 getting into a Mach E isn’t any more expensive than getting into the First Edition VW ID.4. The Mach E is also competitive alongside rivals from Tesla and the premium players, though as you climb the specification ladder it does get too close for comfort to some, though the Mach E’s excellent potential range is a good trade-off for the lack of a recognised premium badge on its lengthy bonnet
Topping up that battery will be no more expensive than any of its rivals, while the 0% BIK, allied to the Mach E’s useful range means it’ll make a lot of sense to business users. Residual values are likely to be strong, too, while the insurance groupings are in line with what we’d expect. Ford offers a serving plan that allows monthly payments to spread the cost, though the warranty isn’t as generous as some rivals, notably from Kia and Hyundai, so if you’re buying privately, and intend on keeping it for more than three years, you might want to take that into consideration.
