After tons of rumors and a long wait, it’s finally here: The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric crossover SUV. Capable of zero-to-60-mph runs in the “mid-three-second” zone and packing up to 300 miles of range in a crossover body with a Mustang badge, the Mach-E appears to target EV range warriors and enthusiasts alike. Its success is still up in the air, but we do know the Mach-E’s trims and equipment, and leaked, seemingly accurate information from a Ford consumer site gives us a peek at the pricing.
There are two battery packs offered in the Mach-E, labeled standard range (SR) or extended range (ER). The SR pack has a 75.7-kWh energy storage capacity, while the ER packs contain 98.8 kWh. All models also get a 15.5-inch touchscreen powered by Ford’s latest SYNC infotainment system, which can learn the user’s habits and customize its suggestions. A new keyless-entry system that enables you to use your phone as a key is also available, making it possible to never touch your key fob, let alone pull it out of a purse or pocket.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition Price + Features
Inspired by the Mustang’s design, the Mach-E also gets a few Mustang-like names for its various tiers of performance and equipment. Kicking things off is the First Edition, the limited-run model to commemorate the launch of the electric SUV that will be available in “late 2020.”
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Select Price + Features
Moving to the entry point of the new Mach-E range, we have the Mach-E Select, which goes on sale in early 2021. Priced from $43,895 (or as little as $36,395 after federal credits—again, according to the leaked information), the Select quotes a target for EPA-estimated range of 230 miles with rear-wheel drive and a mid-five-second zero-to-60-mph time. Should you opt for the available all-wheel drive, range drops to 210 miles.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Standard/Optional Features
Ford is planning three driving modes for the Mach-E GT: Whisper, Engage, and Unbridled. Pony jokes aside, the three modes promise to tailor the steering response, ambient lighting, sounds, and instrument-cluster animation to the desired level of performance.
All Mach-E variants will benefit from a 4.8-cubic-foot front trunk (or “frunk”) that’s equipped with a drain to make it easily washable. The rear trunk/cargo area offers 29 cubic feet of storage space with the rear seats up; fold the rear seats and you can stuff up to 60 cubic feet of cargo back there. A hands-free, foot-activated rear liftgate opening system is also available. The cabin of the Mach-E promises its share of tech and creature comforts, including an optional premium Bang & Olufsen sound system and a panoramic fixed glass roof with infrared coating to keep vehicle temperatures under control.
