The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is the point where the company’s past meets the future. Named and inspired by the company’s most iconic car, the new model comes as the first all-electric crossover from the Blue Oval company ever. The new model is production-ready and we expect it will hit the market sometime late in the year.
With this crossover, you may count on lots of great things. The different configurations will provide different ride characters. Of course, it will mostly depend on your budget and most affordable variants will come with pretty average performances. On the other side, more expensive variants will be able to deliver strong performance and respectable range. Along with that, you may count on the legendary name and the styling that takes a lot of inspiration from the iconic pony car. At the same time, this model will be comfortable and practical to drive, while the company promises thousands of charging stations across the U.S.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Powertrain
As you may presume, this is the most interesting part of the new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV. The new model will come in several variants, depending on the electric motor configuration, battery capacity etc. Base models will come with a single electric motor configuration. The max output will go between 255 and 332 horsepower and max torque between 306 and 417 pound-feet. On the other side, the GT version will come with electric motors on both axles and a max output that goes all-away up to 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque. With such numbers, you may count on 0-60 time around 3.5 seconds with the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E AWD, which is on par with the latest Shelby GT500.
When it comes to the battery pack, you may count on two variants. Base models will feature a 75.7-kWh battery, while the bigger 98.9-kWh battery will be in the offer too. Standard models are expected to feature max range around 210 miles. Models with the bigger battery pack should be able to make up to 300 miles on a single charge. Speaking of charging, Ford plans to build thousands of stations across the country, while every model will come equipped with a handy mobile charger.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Design
Those would be the key 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E specs. When it comes to the design, the first thing you’ll notice is that we are talking about a crossover, which comes with a so-called coupe crossover layout. However, the higher ground clearance can’t fool the viewer and the new model obviously takes plenty of inspiration from the legendary pony car. This is particularly notable at the front, where you can notice that loads of details are borrowed from Mustang. Those refer to headlights, bumper and many other things, while the grille is, typically for electric cars, is closed. The legendary design solutions can be notices on the rear end as well. The new electric crossover will be available with either 18- or 20-inch wheels.
While the exterior design has tons of resemblance with the gasoline Mustang, the interior is a completely different story. We are talking about a modern-looking cabin, which comes with a pretty futuristic appearance, highlighter by a huge vertically-positioned touchscreen at the center console.
Most of the cabin features really nice materials, while you may also count on a pretty long list of standard equipment. Things like customizable ambient interior lighting, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof are all standard.
The cabin is also pretty spacious and adult passengers will certainly enjoy a comfortable ride in both rows. The cargo area also seems pretty respectable, as you may count on about 29 cubic feet behind the second row and 60 cubic feet with the second row folded.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Release Date and Price
When it comes to the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E release date, we expect that the new electric SUV will hit the market sometime late in the year. In terms of the price, base versions are expected to go around 45.000 dollars. The AWD 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT will go around 62.000 dollars.
When it comes to the competition, we expect that key rivals will be models like Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y, as they are pretty similar both in terms of price and performance. Still, keep in mind other electric SUVs as well, such as more expensive Jaguar I-Pace and Audi e-tron. Of course, we count on more brand-new electric SUVs to come in the near future as well.
