If you’ve been on the fence about buying a new Ford Mustang Mach-E, good news: Ford has dropped prices across the lineup of its first battery-electric vehicle. At the low end, there’s a $900 drop on the RWD standard-range base model, listed at $45,995. At the other end is a $5,900 decrease for the GT Extended Range, which now carries a $63,995 MSRP.

In addition to the price cuts, Ford will also increase production of the Mustang Mach-E. The carmaker now plans to build 130,000 BEVs for the North American and European market, a massive increase from the previously planned 78,000. The production increase will in turn decrease wait times for new cars, a sticking point for drivers ready to trade hydrocarbons for electrons. Those who have already ordered new BEVs from Ford will get the lower prices as well.

Ford’s move comes just two weeks after Tesla discounted some of its models by as much as 20 percent. At the bottom of the lineup, the Model 3 RWD is now $43,990—$3,000 cheaper than it was last year. The Model Y has been heavily discounted as well, with the Long Range and Performance models seeing a $13,000 discount.

A major independent flight tracking platform, which has made enemies of the Saudi royal family and Elon Musk, has been sold to a subsidiary of a private equity firm. And its users are furious.

ADS-B Exchange has made headlines in recent months for, as AFP put it, irking “billionaires and baddies.” But in a Wednesday morning press release, aviation intelligence firm Jetnet announced it had acquired the scrappy open source operation for an undisclosed sum.
