Thanks to Mach E Forums, we now know pretty much everything you need to know about the forthcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E. Yesterday the company formally announced the name for its first electric crossover, and someone discovered the (now removed) reservation page shortly thereafter. Now, there’s information on trims, range, performance and — perhaps most importantly — what the car officially looks like. Turns out former renderings weren’t too far off the mark, and it also seems the car has notable performance to back up its Mustang lineage.
Here’s what we know now about the upcoming 2021 Ford Mustang Mach E.
Range and performance
One of the figures we had on good authority was a range of roughly 300 miles. On this reservation page, that number appears to be accurate. However, keep in mind that the 300-mile figure is Ford’s estimated range, so that number could be subject to change by the time official EPA figures are released. This figure puts it somewhat near the Tesla Model 3, although it’s likely Ford’s aiming for the brand’s smaller Model Y crossover with the Mustang Mach-E, since it looks about the same size, rather than the Model X.
According to Ford’s estimated figures, you can also charge 47 miles of range in 10 minutes using DC fast charging. That puts the charging time to 80 percent capacity in about 50 minutes, which is slightly slower than other electric models in current production. Mind you, that is just an estimate at this point, and we should have more official information on that soon.
Trims and price
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E looks like it will be available in several different trims, both in rear- and all-wheel drive variants. The base Select trim is the least expense, starting at $43,895. That model is slightly less powerful, targeting 250 horsepower in the standard range variant. Torque varies depending on whether you get a single-motor rear-wheel drive or dual-motor all-wheel drive setup. The former manages 306 lb-ft of torque, while the latter bumps that up to 429 lb-ft. The Select is also the shortest-range version: between 210 miles with all-wheel drive and 230 miles with all-wheel drive.
Stepping up from there is the Premium, starting at $50,600 before any available federal and state tax credits. Like the difference between the standard and Premium Mustang trims, this adds more in the way of comfort features than out-and-out performance. 0-60 times remain the same (in the mid-5-second range), but you do get a range bump to 300 miles. Power also increases to 282 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque.
The $52,400 California Route 1 edition is a strictly rear-wheel drive variant that’s actually slightly slower than the base Select or Premium. However, like the Mustang California Special, this one will likely have some unique accents to differentiate the trim from other ordinary models. Ford says this variant has “cruise-worthy engineering”, for whatever that’s worth to you.
Then there’s the First Edition. This limited edition model starts at $59,900 and features red brake calipers, three unique exterior colors, brushed aluminum pedals and First Edition scuff plates. The First Edition AWD model is what Ford showed on their reservation page. While you gain power here over the other models, range here falls to 270 miles.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT sits at the top of the range, befitting its relationship to the Mustang coupe. It’s the most expensive version, but also the best performer. Ford says it has “torque-drenched exhilaration” for your $60,500. Although, Ford has yet to show actual power and torque figures here, unlike any of the other trims. See more pricing info below:
More coming soon
Ford will officially reveal the Mustang Mach-E this Sunday night, November 17. We’ll publish much more information around that time, but for now here’s pretty much everything you need to know. Stay tuned for more updates!C
