By using the A-plan I'm only paying a government fee of 67.00 and a doc fee of 75.00.
The 100 dollar repeat customer cash takes care of most of that with my dealer.

I am gong to be using the A-plan also. This is my first time. If I understand this right its 4% off the MSRP plus $275 and another $100 for something else. Is that correct?

Each dealer is responsible for complying with Plan Rules, applicable laws and regulations.

I live in New Jersey and I plan to take advantage of X plan pricing. I am getting a Premium 4wd, extended range. I intend to utilize Ford Options to get the 2,500 incentive. What can I expect to pay? What fees is the dealer allowed to charge over the discounted price?

At current pricing, Premium AWD ER is between $54,959 and $55,782 with X-Plan, depending on paint color and whether you opted for the interior protection package. That includes the $1,100 destination fee.

The dealer may charge a doc fee of up to $100 or the locally permitted maximum amount, whichever is smaller.

They can't charge market adjustments or other non-tangible markups. But they can charge for tangible items such as window tinting, different tires, extended warranties, etc. It's up to you to negotiate those sorts of add-ons.

If you're depending on them for financing, they can also markup loan rates and other things like that, and of course your credit scoring comes into play for that stuff, too.

Your trade-in value (if you have one) is also negotiable, of course.

That's about all I can think of other than mandatory city/county/state fees.

Using x plan, At time of paperwork, did your dealer charge a dealer fee outside of the max $100 document fee?

Here’s info on what the AZX plans will likely look like for the Mach-E:

via CarsDirect:

Ford Plan Pricing refers to haggle-free savings reserved for Ford employees & retirees, affiliated organizations, and friends & family. Unlike other Ford vehicles, the Mach-E's unique pricing structure requires a slightly different discount calculation.

Here's what Plan Pricing for the Mach-E looks like, according to a bulletin sent to dealers:

A-Plan (Ford Employees): 4% below MSRP plus $275 administrative fee and 0.25% advertising fee

Z-Plan (Ford Retirees): Same as A-Plan

D-Plan (Dealer Employees): A-Plan plus $100

X-Plan (Ford Partners, Friends & Neighbors): 2% below MSRP plus $275 administrative fee
The Mustang club requires 60day membership and the card which takes a while to get according to the information when I signed up.

I am using X-Plan pricing for my MME Premium LR that is scheduled to be at my Costa Mesa, CA dealer (no ADM) on 5 Apr 21. I understand the pricing model and my dealer has shown it to me on their invoice. What I don't understand is:

1. According to the Ford Partner website, there is a $2,600 ($2500 + $100) incentive for the MME in the 92648 zip code.
2. According to other threads in this forum, there is a $2,500 rebate for using the Ford Options program.

My question is: are the two x $2500 amounts above one and the same, i.e., a total of $2500 off, OR are they two different programs, whereby the total discount is $5000 off, assuming one uses the Ford Options program?

Thanks in advance for any clarifications provided.

I think it's just different mixes of what they're including or not including into a quoted price. As you'll see below, there are a lot of pieces to the overall price.

You can compute your own X-Plan price for a specific Mach-E... This number should match up with what your dealer quotes you for that same vehicle:

Start with:

base MSRP (e.g. $47,000)
+ paint ($0 or $400 or $600 depending on color)
+ other factory options (e.g. extended range battery, interior protection package)
= adjusted MSRP

Now convert adjusted MSRP to X-Plan:

(adjusted MSRP * 0.98) + $275 = X-Plan price

Now add in delivery/destination of $1,100:

X-Plan price + $1,100 = cost before dealer add-ons, incentives, trade-in, financing, taxes, state fees, etc.

There is one more fee associated with X-plan which is the "documentary service" or "documentation fee" or however it's referred to in your state. X-Plan limits this fee to $100 or your local, legal limit, whichever is smaller.
