October 2019 - October 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. In July of 2021, Ford began selling a lower priced Mach-E that could qualify for subsidies.

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

Europe is also where Ford performs rigorous testing of its vehicles like the Mach-E, facing extreme conditions operated by robots instead of human drivers.

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.

What is the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT?

The Mach-E GT is the performance version of Ford’s electric CUV that made its debut this fall. The other variants of the Ford Mustang Mach-E take off from zero to 60 mph in five or six seconds. The Mach-E GT slices that to 3.8 seconds.

This AWD only version offers 480 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. It also comes festooned with 20-inch Premium Forged Machined-face Dark Tarnish-painted wheels, plus red front and rear brake calipers. Upgrade to the GT Performance Edition, and you’ll be able to achieve 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. and 634 lb.-ft. of torque.

Earlier this year, EPA estimated ranges came out for the GT and Performance Edition GT, and Ford has surpassed its initial estimates:

Ford Mustang Mach-E (Targeted EPA-estimated range) Ford Mustang Mach-E (Final EPA-estimated range)
GT: 250 miles GT: 270 miles
GT Performance Edition: 235 miles GT Performance Edition: 260 miles

Most recently, deliveries of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT began… early. We have captured a gallery of one of the early deliveries here for you to peruse.

How much does a Mustang Mach-E cost?

The cost of a new Ford Mustang Mach-E varies based on a number of factors including powertrain, interior, customs add-ons etc. Here are the starting prices in the US before any taxes, fees, or federal tax rebates. That being said, Ford EVs are still currently eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit, depending on your annual income.

Select

The Select trim begins at Ford’s lowest priced Mach-E offering at $42,895. It comes standard with a 68 kWh Standard Range battery pack offering 266 horse power and about 230 miles of range on a single charge. If you’d like to upgrade to an AWD powertrain for an additional $2,700, your estimated range drops to 211 miles.

The Select trim can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5.8 seconds with RWD and 5.2 seconds with AWD. As for torque – the RWD Select trim gathers 317 ft.-lb., while AWD provides 428 ft.-lb.

In total, the Select Mach-E can cost as much as $49,635 with all added features and before any taxes, fees or rebates.

Premium

The next tier up is the Premium version of the Mach-E, starting at $47,600. The trim comes with the same standard range battery pack and rear-wheel drive, although you can also upgrade to AWD version for an additional $2,700.

The Premium also offers an option of a larger 88 kWh extended battery pack for another $5,000 for RWD, and $7,700 for AWD.

EPA estimated range, horsepower, and torque of the Mach-E Premium is as follows:

  • Standard range RWD – 230 miles / 266 horsepower / 317 ft.-lb. torque
  • Standard range AWD – 211 miles / 266 HP / 428 ft.-lb.
  • Extended range RWD – 300 miles / 290 HP / 317 ft.-lb.
  • Extended range AWD – 270 miles / 346 HP / 428 ft.-lb.

In total, the Premium Ford Mustang Mach-E can cost as much as $57,490 with all added features and before any taxes, fees or rebates.

California Route 1

The Mach-E California Route 1 version, starts at a price at $50,400, comes with the extended range 88 kWh battery standard. This rear-wheel drive only version delivers an EPA estimated range of 305 miles, 290 horsepower, and 317 lb.-ft. of torque.

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.

GT

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.

Its AWD powertrain provides to 480 horsepower and 600 ft.-lb. of torque, zipping from 0 to 60 mph in just over 3.8 seconds.

The GT will also come in a Performance Edition AWD powertrain for an extra $5,000. While the battery size and horsepower remains the same, the Performance Edition will offer an EPA estimated 260 miles of range, 634 ft.-lb. of torque, and can travel from 0 to 60 mph in a slightly quicker 3.5 seconds.

With the Performance Edition upgrade, the Mach-E GT can cost as much as $66,125.

First Edition

When the Mustang Mach-E was first introduced, Ford offered a fifth variation called the First Edition. This limited release model started at a price $61,000 and came with the extended range battery, AWD, and visual enhancements, providing 332 horsepower and a 270-mile range. 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.

Interior on the Mach-E / Source: Ford

What does the Ford Mustang Mach-E interior look 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.

Speaking of which, Ford recently issued a recall on over 5,000 Mach-E vehicles in Canada regarding a risk of the EV’s glass roof and windshield potentially coming loose and falling off.

Poetically enough, this recall came less than a year after the legacy automaker threw shade at fellow American competitor Tesla for the same issue. Ford has since stated that this issue affects 1,812 2021 Mustang Mach-E vehicles in Canada.

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.

How do you order the Ford Mustang Mach-E?

Check for deals and what inventory is available at a dealership near you.

However, many Mach-E orders have recently been delayed by up to six weeks due to a semiconductor shortage. To soften this blow to customers, Ford is offering free 250 kWh fast charging.

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.
