My dealer said there is no X Plan pricing for Ford which has been released on the MME. Pretty sure I saw a table listing X Plan for MME at 2% plus 275. Any confirmation on that so I can enlighten him? Thanks.

Have him read dealer bulletin: EFC08063. This is the official dealer communication from Ford that lays out the AXZD plan rules for the Mach-E. If a customer is not using AXZ-D plan pricing the dealer can sell the Mach-E for any price they choose. They just can't advertise it for less than MSRP.

There are several different types of dealers regardless of which brand of cars they're selling:

1. Those who know the ins and outs of their cars and various incentive programs.

2. Those who don't but can be educated or informed.

3. Those who won't participate in any discount or incentive that might reduce their profit by a single penny.

4. Same as #3 but will lie about it.

Do as @hybrid2bev suggested.

Because they lobbied for, and received, legal mandates for their continued existence and legal protected middleman status - so they don't have to know *anything* - you can't buy a Ford direct, and their agreements make sure Ford can't open a better store in "their" geographic territory...

And that is changing. Can't happen soon enough imo.

OK, my dealer responded very quickly after I passed the info on the X-Plan. I have now officially upgraded from Premium AWD Standard Battery to Premium AWD Extended battery. Showed up in on my Ford page instantly. X Plan discount included in order form from dealer. Game on!
