Ford No Haggle Pricing Set to Compete with Tesla

In an effort to compete with Tesla, which has taken the EV industry by storm, Ford no-haggle pricing gives buyers one uniform price.

Ford announced its new Ford no-haggle sales model to compete with Tesla, which has taken the EV industry by storm. 

This means the dealerships they’ve previously partnered with to sell their vehicles must commit to the falt-pricing model to retail new Ford EVs. 

Dealers Must Commit to Ford No Haggle Pricing Model 

To sell Ford EVs, dealerships must commit to the Ford No Haggle pricing model and put up to $1.2 million into dealership upgrades (this includes EV/charging infrastructure).

“Changes in the market have compelled Ford and our dealers to revisit how customers shop, buy, and own, and how they will do this going forward,” said Ford Chief Executive Jim Farley in a July earnings call.

These upgrades are likely already in the plans for dealerships already selling EVs, but for many, it will be a financial squeeze. 

Dealerships have until 2024 to opt in. 

The New Ford EV

Earlier this year, Ford announced it would split into two distinct operations — separating its electric and internal combustion engine businesses within the legacy auto brand. 

The split freed EV operations to make big decisions faster to compete with Tesla for the growing market share. 

This new Ford no haggle pricing, along with direct online sales, is one of the first big shakeups we’ve seen due to the strategic brand split.

What Ford No Haggle Pricing Means For You?

The most significant difference you’ll see is a uniform price on most Ford EVs and the option to buy one online. 

If you don’t live near a participating dealership, you may not get to test drive one. And it also means you may be unable to find a lower price. But you don’t have to negotiate. 

For dealerships, this is a pretty significant change in the landscape. However, we could see many used car dealers find a good resale margin similar to Tesla. Since Ford’s EV models are still so new, there will likely be more s supply than demand.

Tupelo — As Good a Place to Start as Any

Tupelo — As Good a Place to Start as Any

Our local Airline, Contour, says of their hometown, “We’ve all got to start somewhere, it might as well be Tupelo.” We couldn't agree more.

The crew at Contour Airlines wrote a blog post/essay/love letter for each of its destinations. And their Tupelo post has been making its rounds in the Carmigo office because of the line, “We’ve all got to start somewhere, it might as well be Tupelo.”

We couldn’t agree more (after all, we started Carmigo in Tupelo). 

Every Beginning Has a Place, Ours Is TupeIo

In the creative/startup/entrepreneurial scene, we spend a lot of time discussing what we’ll do. We talk about ideas, and we set benchmarks for pursuing those ideas, like: 

  • “I’ll move to a big city after college, and then I’ll start playing music.” 
  • “I’ll plan my passion project once I’ve been promoted to the VP level.” 
  • “One day, I’ll quit my job and pursue my million-dollar idea.”

And sure, it’s hard to find an audience for your atonal prog-rock band in Selmer, Tennessee, but that doesn’t mean you have to put your ideas on hold. 

Don’t let your time or place keep you from putting your idea into the world—starting your first business, writing the first draft of that book, or building the best car-selling platform on the internet. 

Tupelo Has a Local Airline? 

Contour Airlines is a Tupelo classic. They haven’t been around as long as the other mainstays, but they’ve been around a lot longer than Carmigo and helped many Tupelo folk get around. 

One time, one of those standard airport mixups held the plane up in another city. So they pulled their private Learjet (that Bon Jovi once chartered) out of the garage and flew us to Nashville in a matter of seconds. 

Contour Airlines makes travel easy, and we love easy.
