2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Review

 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Review

Ford revolutionized mobility over a century ago when it brought the horseless carriage to the masses. Breaking the internal combustion engine (ICE) mold with its first expansion of the Mustang lineup in 56 years, the automaker is angling to ride the wave of transformation to electrification. Gone is the guttural growl of the V8 ICE engine, and in its wake a brand-redefining luxury ride that is smooth and silent—a hallmark of the electric engine—with performance worthy of the Mustang badge. In addition, the latest-generation Ford Sync infotainment system shows how far the company has come in its connected-car capabilities. Ford is no one-trick pony and the 2021 Mach-E proves it, earning our Editors' Choice award.

Mach-E Pricing and Design
Available in five trims—Select, California Route 1, Premium, GT (late summer 2021), and First Edition (sold out)—the Mach-E offers a variety of battery and electric motor configurations to customize power output and range. All trim levels are equipped with an 88.0-kWh battery pack and two electric motors, one on each axle, sending power to all four wheels. 

All also come with a portable 120-volt or 240-volt charging cable and DC fast-charging capability. The DC fast charger reaches a maximum of 150 kilowatts and boosts 52 miles of range in 10 minutes. The Mach-E Premium trim we tested can charge its battery from 10% to 80% in 45 minutes.

Ford’s charging network of 13,500 third-party stations can be accessed through its proprietary app. At stations that support the Plug & Charge protocol, the vehicle starts charging within seconds of plugging in, once payment information is preloaded in the app. The Ford mobile charger, included with the vehicle, can add an estimated average range of 20 miles per charging hour on a 240V outlet. Ford is teaming up with Amazon for home installation by a licensed electrician.
