Having a new car, especially a new Ford Mustang Mach-E is not that hard if you have the money just in cash. But if you want to have it in economical way, maybe it’s better to change your taste in the first place. Mustang Mach-E has not just higher residual value than other like EV, its also more than the gas models. Moreover, by lease-like option by Ford, you would loose much more than you gain. Carsdirect reports.
It is very common that for Electric vehicles residual values are much lower than combustion models. This Residual value means, if the vehicle has a better residual value, so it will retain its value well over the lease term, which could affect the lease rates. For Ford Mustang Mach-E has a 36-month residual value of 56%, while the limited-production First Edition comes in at 58%. But the 2021 Mustang Turbocharged itself has the residual value just 48%. even the V8-powered GT coupe has the residual of 53%.
As this residual number of Mach-E is much high, it’s no surprise to have one just from the "lease-like" option called Ford Options Plan. But the weak link of this plan is the balloon financing. As the Ford Credit isn't passing along a $7,500 tax credit in the form of lease cash could make the Mach-E terrible to lease.
Anyway, in comparing the Mach-E and a Mustang V8, Mach-E could at last be cheaper. If we ignore the delays in delivering, it’s a good chance to have an all-electric SUV.
