Right now, we know that a couple of different batteries will be available for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, though every option is fully electric – no hybrids here. Some of these are restricted or available based on the trim you choose, so keep that in mind as you consider your options. While we do not yet have all of the final specs on the Mach-E, what we know so far definitely has us excited.
An extended-range battery will be available on a lot of models of the Mach-E, which is available with either all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. This battery offers about 332 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque, converted from kW and Nm, for an excellent overall driving experience. With all-wheel drive, Ford is targeting a 0-60 time in the mid 5-second range, which will be faster than the standard Porsche Macan.
There will also be a couple of performance versions of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E available, living up to the pedigree of the Mustang name. The standard GT model is targeted right now to go from 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds, which would make it faster than the Porsche Macan Turbo. A high-performance GT Performance Edition of the Mach-E will go from 0 to 60 in a mid 3-second range, making it comparable to the Porsche 911 GTS. This model will have a powerful battery offering an estimated 459 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque.
Charge and Range
One of the biggest concerns a lot of people still have about electric vehicles like the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is its range with a charge. Although the batteries in these vehicles have come a long way since they were first introduced, some people still worry about them. The incredible range and performance of the Mach-E will quickly put those concerns to rest.
With a fast-charge charger and the available extended range battery, the Mach-E is estimated to get up to 47 miles of range off just a quick 10-minute charge. That means you could plug in, charge up quickly, and head out to run errands around town without having to worry about it the night before. This is just as easy as hitting a gas station for a quick fill-up in the morning before taking care of things.
Total range on a full charge depends on the trim level and battery that you choose. The Select trim will have an estimated range of up to 230 miles on a full charge. The Premium, with the extended range battery, should get up to 300 miles of driving on a full charge. If you go with a performance model like the GT, then you will get an estimated 250 miles of range off the charge due to the power and speed that it delivers.
With the incredible performance and power that the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E offers, it can be easy to forget that this beauty is, ultimately, an SUV. That means you should get the kind of storage and cargo space in it that you would expect from any other SUV in this size range. Fortunately, the Mach-E delivers on that quite well.
In terms of traditional cargo space, you get 29 cu.ft. of storage space in the rear of the vehicle behind the back seats. With the seats down, you get nearly 60 cu.ft. of cargo space behind the front row of seating. That is plenty of room for loading up with supplies to take on the road for a weekend away, or for piling in all of your family for a long road trip.
On top of that, there is also a front trunk under the hood that gives you another 4.8 cu.ft. of storage space. This area is washable and includes a drain, making it the perfect spot for a cooler – or skipping the cooler altogether and simply loading it up with ice and beverages. You get seating for up to five people in the Mach-E, making it a great family vehicle.
Powerful batteries that offer great range and amazing performance are one thing, but the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E also offers incredible innovations in technology beyond battery life. The inside of the Mach-E is gorgeous and offers the perfect blend of luxurious comfort and sophisticated technology. All of this is brought together with the next-generation SYNC 4 system that functions seamlessly with your smartphone for an unbeatable driving experience.
Once you create a profile in the SYNC system, your Mustang Mach-E will recognize you as you approach with your phone. The vehicle will then automatically adjust to fit your profile, moving the seats and mirrors, setting the lighting and radio station, and even adjusting the customizable instrument cluster panel to be just the way you like it. You can also select different driving experiences in the system to match your mood; so whether you are feeling adventurous, looking to relax, or want some entertainment, the interior sound, lighting, and vehicle responsiveness will all adjust to give you what you want.
All of this is easy to set and customize through the gorgeous 15-inch Infotainment display that includes cloud-connected Navigation. Once connected to your phone through the FordPass app, you can use your phone to lock and unlock your doors, start the vehicle, open the liftgate, and much more. In fact, the new E-Latch system locks the vehicle when you get out, and as it detects that you approach, it illuminates a button that you simply touch to open the door. And for when you are ready to really enjoy your ride, the available 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system offers you an experience unlike any other, which envelops you in sound so you can focus on the road and simply enjoy your 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E.
