Ford Dealers Must Set No-Haggle Prices
Ford’s U.S. dealers must invest as much $1.2 Million and adhere to new sales standards if they want to sell electric vehicles beyond 2023. Dealers will have until Oct. 31st to opt into one of two EV certifications tiers that cover varying investments levels in fast chargers and staff training. The dealers who choose not to invest will be limited to selling internal combustion vehicles and hybrids from the Ford brand.
EV dealers must sell the products at nonnegotiable prices, and those who choose the lower-priced certification tier wont be allowed to carry EVs in inventory but will have customers order exactly what they want for later delivery.
