WHY IS THIS INFORMATION IMPORTANT?
This page will tell you everything that you need to know about this SUV. Buying a vehicle is a huge accomplishment and a large financial outlay. We want you to have as much information as possible, so that you can make the best decision for you.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E is a battery electriccompact crossover SUV produced by Ford. The vehicle was introduced on November 17, 2019, and went on sale in December 2020 as a 2021 model. The car won the 2021 North American SUV of the Year Award.
The vehicle used the Mustang nameplate, with a Mach-E moniker which is inspired by the Mach 1 variant of the first-generation Mustang. The model was originally teased as the Ford Mach 1, but was retracted after strong public opposition, with Jim Farley describing the name tease as an evaluation.
Conventional door handles are absent on the Mustang Mach-E, and the vehicle instead features buttons that pop open the doors and a small door handle protruding from the front doors. Owners can use their smartphones as a key as well as a keypad built into the B-pillar.
The interior has a wide dashboard and built-in soundbar; the dash is equipped with a vertically mounted 15.5 in (39 cm) touchscreen infotainment system with a rotary dial fixed onto it. The majority of the car’s systems are controlled through the screen, which uses Ford’s recent SYNC 4 operating system that can accept wireless updates. A 10.2 in (26 cm) digital cluster for the driver is also featured, while the steering wheel retains a number of physical buttons.
The Mustang Mach-E is built on the Global Electrified 1 (GE1) platform, which is a heavily reworked version of the C2 platform that is used on the fourth generation Focus and third generation Kuga/fourth generation Escape.
The model was launched with two battery pack sizes and three power outputs. The entry-level rear-wheel drive version is offered with either a 68 kWh battery pack driving a 266 hp (198 kW) motor or a 88 kWh extended battery pack driving a 290 hp (220 kW) motor. Both battery packs have a claimed 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 6.1 seconds or less and an EPA range of around 230 and 300 mi (370 and 480 km) respectively.
A dual-motor all-wheel-drive version is also offered with either the same 68 kWh battery pack driving a 266 hp (198 kW) motor, or the 88 kWh extended battery pack driving a 346 hp (258 kW) motor. They have estimated EPA ranges of 211 and 270 mi (340 and 435 km), respectively. Testing by Edmunds Automotive indicated an actual range of 304 miles with the extended-range battery pack version. Car and Driver achieved a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 5.1 seconds with the extended-range model.

What the critics have to say…
The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E blends popular elements of the past and present in a highly desirable package that bodes well for the future of electric vehicles. While it seems sacrilegious that Ford would call a crossover EV a Mustang, pairing the iconic nameplate with an in-demand body style is smart marketing. Along with its attention-getting appearance, the Mach-E has a handsomely appointed interior that’s brimming with the latest tech.
— Car and Driver
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E may not be the fastest or most affordable electric vehicle out there, nor does it have the most range. It is, however, what Edmunds considers the best in the luxury EV class. Wait, luxury? Yes, we’re classifying it among traditional luxury brands because of its mid-$40,000 starting price (before tax breaks and incentives). It’s especially worthy of the luxury tag when you look at the high-performance Mach-E GT, which starts above $60,000. But the Mustang Mach-E also proves itself worthy in several other areas too.— Edmunds
HOW DOES IT DRIVE?
The Mustang Mach-E is deliciously sporty. You might want to invest in stickier tires if you plan to do lots of aggressive cornering, but this Ford lets you tackle winding roads with aplomb, making it one of the most fun-to-drive EVs out there. The ride is cushioned, even over rough pavement, and the transition from regenerative to regular braking is smooth.USNews
IS IT RELIABLE AND HIGH QUALITY?
Is the Ford Mustang Mach-E Reliable?
The 2021 Mach-E has a predicted reliability score of 60 out of 100. A J.D. Power predicted reliability score of 91-100 is considered the Best, 81-90 is Great, 70-80 is Average, and 0-69 is Fair and considered below average.
Ford Mustang Mach-E Warranty
Ford covers the Mustang Mach-E with a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty. Electric vehicle components are covered by an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty.
HOW COMFORTABLE IS IT?
Highlights include a suspension that excels at soaking up large bumps in the road, a cabin that’s well insulated against wind and ambient noise, and an excellent and easy-to-use climate control system. The available seat and steering wheel heaters get toasty pretty quick, though we’d welcome the option of seat ventilation for warmer climates.Edmunds
WHAT IS THE INTERIOR LIKE?
Unlike its exterior, the inside of the Mach-E has little in common with the regular Mustang. Its streamlined dashboard hosts an attractive digital gauge cluster and is dominated by a huge vertically mounted touchscreen. A floating, flip-up armrest on the center console allows a purse or other items to be stored between the front-seat passengers. There are also many slick features that include customizable ambient interior lighting, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof, and more.Car and Driver
WHAT IS THE TECHNOLOGY LIKE?
The Mach-E nails its interior tech. We like the big 15.5-inch center touchscreen that’s supported by physical controls, such a volume knob. Unlike the Model Y, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is present and also wireless (though you can still connect through USB cord). Ford’s onboard navigation system is responsive and cleanly designed, but not so overly minimalistic like some competitor systems.Edmunds
WHAT IS THE CARGO SPACE LIKE?
The front trunk is made of durable plastics that can be rinsed and then drained, which allows storing ice and messy things. The Mach-E has 29 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, and up to 60 with the back seats folded.Car and Driver
IS THIS VEHICLE A GOOD VALUE?
Unlike Tesla, Ford’s EV credits have not yet run out, meaning the potential discounts on the Mach-E make it a pretty attractive deal. Build quality feels solid overall, and the cabin is beautifully trimmed in a style that feels reminiscent of Scandinavian design. If not for the typical Ford switchgear that appears on the steering wheel and doors, you might think you were in a Lincoln.Edmunds
IS THE MUSTANG MACH-E A GOOD SUV?
YYes, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is a good SUV. This electric SUV accelerates eagerly and handles well, making it much more fun to drive than many other EVs. It also rides smoothly, has a long battery range, and gets the terrific mileage and efficiency you want from an electric vehicle. Inside, the Mach-E looks good, with roomy seats and lots of standard tech features, including a gargantuan touch screen. There’s only one real drawback with this Ford: It charges slower than most other EVs.USNews
SHOULD I BUY THE MUSTANG MACH-E?
The Mach-E is a brand-new entry in the hybrid and electric SUV class, and it should immediately be one of the most attractive options. Aside from its slow charging times, the Mach-E has virtually no weaknesses. It does cost a fair bit more than most class rivals, but with so much all-around quality, you can easily argue that it’s worth the extra money.USnews
THE FINAL WORD
Is this really a Mustang? The jury is still out on that. The Mustang Mach-E checks the range, driving and luxury boxes. It takes longer to charge than other EVs though and its price tag is higher.
