October 2019 - July 2021

The Mustang. Since 1964, the vehicle has become a household name bordering on legendary. As the longest running nameplate for the Ford Motor brand, the Mustang has in many ways become the face of the automaker for passenger vehicles. While the world works together to diminish its dependency on fossil fuels, we have seen a paradigm shift toward electrified transportation. As a legacy automaker, Ford has had the foresight to recognize this revolution and (eventually) lean into it, rather than fight it. The result is an all-electric vehicle that carries the tradition of the name: The Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Here’s what everything you need to know.

The birth of a fully-electric Mustang

In 2019 amidst a growing demand for zero emission solutions in transportation, Ford Motor Company revealed that it was not only going to join the BEV market, but it was going to come out swinging with a genuine EV competitor.

That November, the Mustang Mach-E was introduced to the world as an electrified five-seat, compact SUV (CUV) offering between 210 and 300 miles of range on a single charge.

By late 2020, Ford began selling the Mustang Mach-E as the first of several new mainstream electric vehicles to come.

Not even a year later, the Ford Mustang Mach-E continues to gather sales in the US across several different trim options, and has expanded to other continents. Let’s dig into it.

Where in the world is the Ford Mustang Mach-E available?

Currently, the electric Mustang CUV is available in the United States and Europe.

Additionally, Ford announced a joint venture with Changan Ford last February to produce Mach-E vehicles for the Chinese market.

Where is the Mach-E assembled?

Currently, the final Mach-E assembly takes place at Ford’s Cuautitlán Assembly facility in Cuautitlán Izcalli, Mexico.

Ford Motor Company has mentioned eventually expanding facilities for production in the US, but producing EVs in Mexico offers a lower cost to get the new Mustang profitable quicker.

In China, all versions of the Mach-E are manufactured in Chongqing at Changan Automobile’s facility as part of the aforementioned joint venture with Ford.

In June of 2021, Ford has reported that it is now producing more models of its electrified Mustang than the traditional gasoline version.

How many versions of the Mustang Mach-E are there?

Currently, the Mustang Mach-E comes in four different versions for the United States and Europe, and five variations in China. There are as follows:

US versions:

  • Select
  • Premium
  • California Route 1
  • GT

European versions:

  • Rear wheel drive (RWD)
  • All wheel drive (AWD)
  • GT

Chinese versions:

  • Standard Range RWD**
  • Long Range SE RWD**
  • Extended Range RWD
  • Extended Range AWD
  • GT First Edition

** – These two models qualify for China’s state-led subsidies.

All in, the CA Route 1 version doesn’t jump far in price, reaching a max of $51,240 with all the whistles. Although this version of the Mach-E does not come with an AWD powertrain option.

The upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is at the top of the lineup in both price and performance. It comes equipped with the 88 kWh extended range battery standard, delivering an EPA estimated range of 270 miles.

It also included First Edition badges and red brake calipers.

By December of 2019, all the available inventory had been reserved with a $500 deposit. First Editions have since sold out, and could remain a collector’s item moving forward.

How much does it cost to lease a Mustang Mach-E?

Ford won’t technically offer a lease program for the Mustang 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 its customers.​

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.

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.

Ford Mustang Mach E Stories February 5

When we were invited to Ford’s campus in 2019 to check out what we’d learn was the new Mustang Mach-E, we were told we were witnessing the future of the iconic 118-year-old American auto manufacturer. We soon learned that Ford wasn’t just messing around with another compliance EV, it was building a sport CUV and throwing their most prized emblem on it.

Fast forward to 2021. I got a chance to drive the Mach-E for a full week, and this wasn’t a Southern California summer jaunt, when most EV drives are scheduled. It was Nor’easter-plagued late January in New York, including a snowy road trip to Vermont. I currently drive a Tesla Model Y as a daily driver and have been driving EVs exclusively for a decade, so this Mustang isn’t my first rodeo.
