In late 2020, Ford will begin selling the Mustang Mach-E. It’s a five-seat, all-electric SUV offering between 210 and 300 miles on a single charge. Ford used the name and styling of its iconic pony car as the first of several new mainstream electric vehicles. Here’s what you need to know.
How do you order the Ford Mustang Mach-E?
What’s the Ford Mustang Mach-E price?
The price of the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E starts at $44,995. There is a range of five different Mach-E models, climbing above $60,000.
The Mach-E’s Select trim starts at $44,995 Select. It comes standard with 255 horsepower and a 75.7-kWh Standard Range battery pack offering about 230 miles of range on a single charge. The Select accelerates from zero to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds. You can add an all-wheel-drive for $2,700, although that drops the range to about 210 miles.
The Premium version of the Mach-E starts at $51,700. The Premium comes with the same Standard Range battery pack and rear-wheel drive. Again, you can select the all-wheel-drive version for $2,700. The Premium also offers an option of a larger 98.8-kWh Extended battery pack for $5,000 extra. That boosts the estimated range to 300 miles with rear-wheel drive and 270 miles with all-wheel drive. The Premium’s power output is 282 horsepower and 332 hp for the RWD and AWD, respectively.
The Mach-E 282-horsepower California Route 1 version, starting at $53,500, comes with the Extended battery and rear-wheel drive to deliver a range of 300 miles. It also brings unique 18-inch aerodynamic wheels. All-wheel-drive is not available.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition model starts at $61,000. It comes with the Extended Range battery and all-wheel drive and visual enhancements, including First Edition badges and red brake calipers. The $61,600 Mach-E GT is at the top of the lineup. It also comes with the Extended Range battery but boosts power to 459 hp and 612 lb-ft. The GT can zip from zero to 60 mph in just over 3 seconds.
Ford EVs are still eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit.
What is the Ford Mustang Mach-E lease price?
Ford won’t technically offer a lease program for the Mach-E. Instead, the company says it will have a “lease-like” purchase arrangement for those who don’t want a conventional purchase. The deal will bring mileage limits and a guaranteed buy-back at the end of three years.
Ford said it was taking this approach to pass 100% of the federal EV tax credit to the customer. We don’t yet have information about the Mach-E’s residual value, but CarsDirect said the lease rate would be equivalent to about 2.25% APR with 36- and 48-month options.
When is the Ford Mustang Mach-E coming out?
Ford’s new Mach-E electric SUV is coming out on a rolling schedule beginning in late 2020. That’s when the First Edition and Premium models arrive. Then, in early 2021, Ford will introduce the Select and California Route 1 versions of the Mach-E. Finally, in spring 2021, the performance-oriented Mach-E GT arrives.
What is the Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition?
Ford announced the availability of the First Edition Mach-E when the vehicle was unveiled in November 2019. By December, all the available inventory had been reserved with a $500 deposit. The well-equipped version – offering the larger battery, all-wheel drive, and vegan upholstery – provides 332 horsepower and a 270-mile range. It will feature red-painted brake calipers, metallic pedal covers, contrasting seat stitching, and a scuff plate marked “First Edition.”
What is the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT?
The Mach-E GT is the performance version of Ford’s electric SUV. It arrives in spring 2021. The other variants of the Mustang Mach-E take off from zero to 60 mph in five or seconds. The Mach-E GT slices that to the mid-three-second level. The privilege costs $61,600 – the top of the line for the model.
The all-wheel-drive only version will target 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque. It will come festooned with 20-inch Premium Forged Machined-face Dark Tarnish-painted wheels with red front and rear brake calipers.
What will the Ford Mustang Mach-E interior be like?
The Ford Mustang Mach-E seats five adults comfortably. In addition to the exterior front trunk – or frunk – the rear trunk provides 29 cubic feet of space. With the back seats down, the Mach-E boasts 59.6 cubic feet of space.
The Mach-E sports traditional Mustang design cues. The interior dash got a double-brow that dips in the middle. It also features a panoramic fixed-glass roof.
There is a large central touchscreen mounted in a portrait position in the center of the dashboard. It has an analog rotary button built into the screen. That arrangement is augmented by a second screen in front of the driver that displays the speed and available range.
Where is the Ford Mustang Mach-E made?
The Mustang Mach-E will be produced at Ford’s plant in Cuautitlán Izcalli, Mexico.
